Evening folks,
Wanting to order a set of tyres, tyre man says that the Ceat are better than the bkt what we had on last time. Basically anyone had any ceat tyres on and think there better than the bkt. We had a set of bkt on it last time and they have done 4000 hour of mainly road work so wondering wether to have same again or try something new. Not interested in top brands as it’s only a cheap tractor so sticking with the cheaper end of tyres as it’s only use to rake, cart silage and spray so not needing a lot of grip.
We had vredstein on a different tractor and don’t think a lot to them for the money so just sticking with the cheaper brands. The bkt hasn’t had a puncture, or let us down in the 5 year they have been on but never hurts to try a new brand.
Thanks

Ours is the tanvic tyres dealer. I trust what they say but we have got on well with the bkt brand and its one of them that do you trust them or stick with what you know?

Different place to us so at least it's not one opinion. To be honest we would have had bkt again but the tractor they were going on does very little and the ceat were cheaper so thought we'd give them a try.

What you doing with the tractor? This will be pulling a dump trailer, silage trailer and rake mainly. All up hills and down in this area. Don’t want them to just disappear with the road work. There’s about 250 quid difference in price between the set.

Ceat on a tractor here for2 years , happy with them, does a fair bit of road work,
Also does the feeder wagon so a lot of tight turns on the concrete and wearing ok
Had bkt on before and don't think there is much difference between them

I've had a pair of CEAT 600/65R38 for 2 years end of this month.

The only negative is they shouldn't be inflated less than 0.8 Bar/12 psi.

Has anyone checked the rolling circumference of CEAT tyres compared to other brands? friend has a replacement set of 650/65r38 on his tractor, and is convinced they are much smaller in overall diameter.

I strongly suspect there’s more money in CEATs if everyone is suddenly recommending them.

Done a tractor and loader last autumn with them, seem fine, tractor rides well. Old JCB seems a lot higher with them, asked if they came with a ladder, but then the old set was a set of Grippsters that definitely qualified as slicks.
