Need to replace the tyres on the 3cx soon and she has 18.4 26 cross ply but considering going to radial and possibly an industrial tread
But not sure what to go for
but what are you thought as she spends a lot of time on concrete and stone lanes but try to keep it out of fields but it is our only loader

Price both and your call really, ag pattern cross plies will probably be as good as industrial radials for grip.
Unless Goodyear are a different animal than they used to be in the Super Traction Radial days, the beads will crack off the sidewalls long before the tread wears out.

I don't want any breed of an industrial tyre on it. What I want instead is a radial at pattern tyre in tha t size. Sometime like a bkt agrimax but unsure what's the closest to this in this size.

460/85r26 is the modern equivalent of an 18.4r26 and is available in a tractor type tread pattern. 480/80r26 are usually an industrial tread pattern.
