New rear tire recommendation ...

Recommended Posts

I forgot I ran over a thorn bush when I had the stockers on. Wouldn’t hold air for more than a day. I since put firestone 23* ags on it and haven’t had an issue.

For solid fill you’ll need to go to a professional tire shop that deals in industrial tires. Agricultural dealers may also deal in it, they’ll most likely offer best juice fill which stays liquid. Each process requires special equipment. Either way it adds 80-100 lbs per 23x12-10 tire.

10.50's should be mounted on 8.5 inch wide rims. Not sure what's on your 486, 7.5"? I suppose people put them on 7.5" but the I imagine the tread might not lay flat.

:twocents-02cents:

10.50s will work on 7.5" rims...just put these on my C125 a few months back, and have so far been very pleased with them

there you go, those AG tire look good.

ticked around on the net trying to see if there are any tips or ticks to the topic. wow didn't think it was so complicated. I did see a few threads where they said using higher rated tires with less air pressure are more puncture resistant. makes a little sense.

I ran a UTV pretty hard for several years in the back woods. high rated tires and low pressure, The flats didn't slow until I treated the tires. Still yet nothing scientific. Sometimes just Lucky.

Well, a month has gone by - a lot of research and shopping.  I settled on a pair of Hi-Run 4-ply Turf Tires 23.5x10.5-12 from Tractor Supply.  They were a little pricey - $95/per - but I’m really happy with them.   The old tires were 36 year old originals 22.5x7.5-12.  Worked a couple hours to change them myself - couldn’t even break the bead.  Took them to our local tire place.  They did them both in 30 minutes for $20.  I want to thank everyone for the advice.  Like I said, I am really happy with the outcome!
