I would definitly not buy the bkt agrimax sirio. Neighbour has sirio 710/70r38 and 540/65r30 on a tractor, 2 or 3 years old. The rears have worn very nicely, definitely below avarage, while fronts melted away at an unbelievable rate. The normal agrimax I would recommend.

The agrimax force and v-flecto are pretty much best value for money you can get. The Sirio I would avoid as well, we have a 675 on a loader traktor in the front and so far they are holding up well, but we don't have them long enough to really judge them yet.

Thats a fairly narrow front tyre compared to the rear is that combination for a specific reason?

Id probably run 600/65/28 with those rears or even 600/60/30?

Any body had Goodyears tyres
My tyre man really pushing them 7yr warranty
The tractor doesn't do a right lot
Bit of flatlifting , mainly tanking on the road and loader work when its free but it would be heavy loader work but the same not alot of it looking for something to last
Not bust in 4 or 5 years
