Need new tyres for the loader. Galaxy coming in far cheaper than the alternatives. Either agri tread or industrial. It does mainly yard work but does venture off road occasionally.
Are people happy with their Galaxy tyres?

480/80r26 fitted price
Agri galaxy £400
Industrial galaxy £550
Vredestien agri £720

Just checking the load ratings are the same. Should all be 160

If it's staying longer than another 3000 hours, Bibload (if Michelin make a 26").
If not, then anything else.
Is it worth the extra investment for a loader? Michelin will be at least twice the price. Loader tyres tend to be in the danger zone for driver error!!

Where did you get price from? We've had Galaxy on our JCB they've been excellent and can count the punctures they've suffered on one hand. Time for some new ones.
 
Galaxy Beefy Baby tyres had came on my last Case skid steer wore well 800 hours replaced with Michelins, machine was sold at either 12 or 1400 hrs and the Michelins were down a fair bit. Would have replaced like for like but couldn't locate the same again. Was very impressed with them.

Carl France who runs his own tyre place called Mobile Tyres. Nice guy based down in Herne Bay near us. He’s a Vredestien agent too but will quote for any make. He seems to be the only guy that will come out on a Sunday for punctures too which is getting him more work on the farms.
We went for the industrial Galaxy in the end. Glad you have got on well with them!
