    650/75r38 questions

    What’s the opinions on this tyre size? Better going for 650/65r42s? I’m Wanting to run 600/65r28s on the front so thought they would be the correct match. Are BKT in the 75 profile a good option or best avoid? Do the 75 profile 650s fit on a rim I’ve got for 650/65r38? Or would I need a...

    Light weight 14t root crop

    We have 14t Bailey root crops are present and find the unladen weight of over 6.5t plenty enough. Maybe they are over engineered for carrying potatoes and corn as that what we use them for. Does anyone know who would make a lighter weight root crop ? It would be better for us not to be pulling...

    I currently have 380/85/28 sized tyres on the front of my tractor and am going to change them to 420/28. Would changing the profile of the tyre to a 70 give and benefit for example speed,grip,how it feels on the road. Or would it do any harm with 4wd etc?

    DRT trailers

    Anyone got any good or bad things to report on these, Never come across them before. A 16 tonne, is around the same price as a Bailey or Stewart 14 tonner.

    BKT or Alliance tyres

    Hi, any feed back on either of these tyre brands being better than the other please? Within £20 of each other. 16.9 R34’s on a fairly low use stock tractor - hence the ‘budget’ choice.

    Quad tyre availability.

    I am looking for tyres for our quad and the better known makes seem to be in short supply. I tried to order 4 BKT wing's online and got an e mail to say they weren't available, and I find the same on other sites and other makes, I wonder if this is because of Covid or Brexit?
