We put goodyear on over bkt as the salesman said was a better tyre. Same price for both. But only in October so time will tell. Won't be hard to be better than the firestones that came off.
 
You're not buying tyres,you're getting married to the tyres. If you change your mind after the deal lis done like marriage it gets very expensive. You have to live with them to death do us part,tyres you get what you pay for

We've a set of the firestone semi industrials and I think theyre a good tyre. Buckraked silage last summer with them with no noticeable difference to agri type tyres.

I’ve got a 12 year old tractor on Goodyear 650’s and a 3 year old tractor on Michelin 650’s.
Park them side by side and you’d swear they were on different sizes, the Goodyear’s looking much wider.
I put the tape on them and that says 2 inches difference although it actually looks like more
Michelin are very poor for tyre size, tread width are usually about 50mm + narrower than other makes of the same size. I would never think about having a tractor fitted with them. A mate has them on his last new tractor, he said " never again ",

had two identical tractors in the same feild muckspreading one with goodyear optitracs and one with michelin multibibs the goodyears could get up the hill in 2wd the michelins couldnt get up the hill at all. Although the michelins did last a little bit longer.

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
