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.

That's because they're tall and wide for their size.
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 ",

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.
