Wider, Lower*, & More Stable Stance
This turf tire kit will drastically increases the stability of the tractor. Yanmar tractors are known for being narrow and tall which, unfortunately, makes them feel very tipsy. Our kit lowers* the tractor slightly and increases the width to help stabilize the tractor in rough or uneven terrain.
Better Traction In Most Situations
The tread is a mix of turf & industrial that gets very good grip. Believe it or not, these tires actually have better grip than the lug tires in most conditions! Unless you have around 2" to 3" of soft or muddy soil you will get better grip with these tires due to the increased surface area. If you think about it, on the lug tires or the "rice" style tires you are only touching the tips of a few lugs on normal ground. Even in muddy or very soft conditions these turf / industrial tread style tires do very well because of the width & deep tread. These Tires Offer Much Better Traction In The Snow!
If you have very soft or sandy soils you will appreciate the wide footprint of these tires. The tires will help the tractor stay on top of soft soils and not get stuck or tear up the ground.
These tires are very friendly to grass and lawns. The wider footprint also means that the tractor"s weight is distributed over a larger area and will not compact the ground as bad as the narrow factory tires. Less ruts, less damage, less compaction.
Up To 4 Times The Load Capacity
The tires have as much as 4 TIMES the load capacity of the factory tires! If you have a loader and keep blowing out tires- this kit is for you.
Great For 2wd And 4wd Models
This kit works great for both 2wd and 4wd tractors. The wider front tires help 2wd tractors from getting bogged down in sand or mud and maintains steering in soft soils.
* This kit will lower all tractors EXCEPT the YM1300(D) 1301(D) 1401(D) 135(D) 155(D) 165(D), 186(D), 1502(D), 1510(D). These 9 tractors will actually be about 1" taller than factory to maintain the correct 4wd ratios.

".. Just a quick note about the turf tire kit. When I initially purchased the kit, I almost didn't because of the cost. I looked online for an alternative but all I could find were lots of folks cutting and hacking wheels to fit. Being an aircraft mechanic, using the correct parts and the proper fit of parts, are extremely important to me on anything. Now that they're installed, I can't believe how big of a difference it makes in every way. The kit is definitely worth every penny!"
".. This [turf tire] kit was money well spent. I should have done this years ago. The tractor is so much more stable now!"
".. The pictures on your website do not do this kit justice. They look so much better in person and on the tractor."
".. These wheels look amazing. The tractor also feels so much safer now. I highly recommend this kit."
".. I got the wheels mounted this weekend, and couldn't be happier with them. They really transformed the old Yanmar! It has a much better feel when driving it, turns easier, feels much more stable, and just plain looks good!!!
