I have 4.00 x 12 on the PK with tri rib tires , the problem with them and I would think any tires with sharp sides ( like whats on yours now ) the grass seem to peel up with a loaded bucket while turning , maybe a multi rib 4 ply would work better . Broke a hub last year on it so I know your concern . Maybe you could try to reinforce the ones you had . Al

i agree. these are probably the best tires for turning grip that will not destroy your lawn. grip better than turfs, don't bite as hard as a tri-rib. good call Daniel!!
They sure like these tires a lot! For $125 + the $26 shipping I would see about filling my old tires with foam.

I use 18x9.50-8 trailer tires with 4 plies, stock hubs and spindles and no tearing up the turf. The bucket weighs 210 lb and anything less than 500 lb in it constitutes a light payload.

The only front end failures have been failed weld on the axle tube where the spindles are attached and one rim where the spyder failed. Hubs, bearings and spindles are all fine, and original, with 2500 hours on them.
