Turf vs Ribbed Tires

Need front tires for my 430, have seen all of the photos of the ribbed (V61?), can anyone give advice on how they work on lawn vs turf tires?

I think they work better than turf tires. I don't get the sliding when turned quickly on wetter grass like I have had with turfs. Plus I don't think they mat the grass down as bad when you travel over it. They also don't collect all the clippings as much as some turfs I have used.

Since I've had my V61's, I won't go back to turf tires for the front. I echo Darrin's comments, plus they look much better, more like a tractor tire. charlie
How do the V61's work in snow with a blade or blower mounted?
I'm also considering swapping to the V61's as a replacement for my worn turf's on my 430. I really like the look of the V61's as well.

They are the best in snow....always run "clean"......with great traction for steering.

I like the V61's for the snow. They work great!! No sliding like with the turfs or tri ribs. I would recommend them anyday!!
Thanks for the input. I think I'm sold on them.
Wow Jim! I knew this has been a cool summer but I don't have any of that white stuff in my driveway.
