Looking for a new pair for the back of the 936 after a unsuccessful part worn experience .
Been quoted a good price on a set of bkt but aware that there are two or three models.
The better agriforce ones read well just wondered if anyone has any experience they would like to share?
It’s a secondhand tractor and I’m looking to put another 1500 -2000 hrs on it before hopefully upgrading . Road work hauling as well as primary cultivation’s and possibly drilling .
710 75 r42 size .
Thank you in advance

They will wear as well as most other brands but on a tractor of that power I would be concerned about the amount of pressure I could safley drop out of them. A Michelin Ultraflex or Trelleborg 1060 will happily work at 10psi you wont get anywhere near that with a budget brand

We put a set on the front of our 7310r 18 months ago and were very impressed with them , it now has bkt rears as well. Teleporter got a set of four just before harvest and our 8360r had a set of four fitted yesterday . We have always had Michelin but they are now way to expensive. We have all our tyres of Agricultural Tyres & Wheels near Boston , Colin Simms who owns it really now his stuff and if he says they are good they ARE good . Time will tell but at half the price of a Michelin or a trelli I would risk it .

Thanks guys
Tbh the trelleborgs have parted from the carcass and leaking despite patches etc so won’t be having them again.
According to bumf they are good at low pressures and suited to higher hp tractors out specking trelleborgs on most, I think I’ll try a pair

Went from michelin 18.4 to bkt agrimaster 20.8 on our jd 6910, never failed to drag the lowloader any where with the michelin, but the bkts won't grip worth a sh!t on some of the hills we to deal with, this is on road work.

Edit. Agrimaster or agrimax? Can't remember now.
 
First time experience of BKT after we replaced a set of Mitas with 650/38s and I'm really impressed with how they've performed, they've far exceeded the expectation of a " budget " tyre brand.

I’ve just put a full set of the Agriforce tyres on my magnum and so far I’m impressed.
Will run at 1 bar no problem. Don’t think they have as much flex in the sidewalls as others as they never look like they are running that low.

Have got lots of other BKT tyres on machines and never had a problem.

Give me a call if you want.

Exactly the same experience, changed Goodyear 600/65R38 for 580/70R38 BKT's, MF 6475, could spin to a stop on tarmac , never had a problem with the Goodyear's. Same tanker, same hill! Do believe that the 65 range of BKT's are better than the 70's and 85.

Says a lot about the BKT's because 600/65r38, regardless of make, are about the worst tyre money can buy. I've seen good and bad BKT tyres, most of the bad were 580/70r38, most of the good were 520/70r38 so I don't think one range is good or bad, I think it's just a general inconsistency across all of their tyres.

I priced bkt and kleber, kleber worked out cheaper with the cash back and Nfu cash back so went with them as I had heard a few mixed reviews on bkt.
