John Deere 6130R XeoBibs

What are people’s thoughts experiences of above? I know a few on here are running 650/60R38 how are you getting on with them?
They have slightly smaller diameter and sit a bit “lower” than 600/65R38 standard tires, has this been an issue, annoying for anyone. Have also read that you can physically fit 650/65R38 multibibs on, does this mean that a 710/60R38 XeoBib would fit?
Comments and experiences welcomed
Thanks in advance.

I have them here on a 6130r, yes it annoys me that they don't fill the space available but in reality it hasnt caused any problems, they really do tread lightly, I use it for combi drilling on ploughed light land and they travel very well

@Ducati899 also has them
 
Thanks, do you both alter pressure much to get most benefit from top work? Any problems with sitting lower, or speed etc. @DieselRob you have tall row crops, do you notice massive difference in height, speed? Or not too much.
Anyone with 650/65R38 Multibibs on, looks like they are slightly bigger (diameter/circumference) than 710/60R38 XeoBibs would be? If anyone had photos of what various sizes looked like that would be great. Thanks

650/65r38 multibib is 1819mm, 710/60r38 xeobib is 1814mm, well on paper anyway. 710/60r38 wil fit a 6130r without modifications, I posted one on 900/50R42 which is the same height as a 650/65r42 and 710/70r38, will need some work to make that fit though.
I have my 6910 on 710/60r38 and 600/60r28 xeobibs and I love them.

Shame there’s no r24 option to match the 710/60 r38, just think the 6130r’s don’t look right with 28’s on the front

I run at 13psi for everything apart from rolling which I go down to 7psi, it treads so lightly I sometimes struggle to see my wheelings for pre em spray! On row crops I think it does 60kph gps speed, only did it once to try it, they're a bit too narrow for that speed imo
 
Thanks all for reply’s. Just to confirm @Gerbert , you know off/ have seen/ driven 6130R on running on 650/65R38 with no issues and enough room @ steps diesel tank etc?
@DieselRob presume your Row Crops are pretty tight fit, what size are they? Does it feel significantly higher on them or not enough to really notice difference from your Xeobibs.
Any pictures of above setups would be much appreciated. Many thanks

My neighbours one on 650/65r38.

And one at the dealers on 900/50r42.

Dealer said the 650/65r38 fits without any issues. So I don't have any personal experience, just saying wat they told me.

@Gerbert what work are you referring to them needing above? Looking at 700/70r38 for our 6130r.
Thanks
 
I am going for 710/60 R38, there are going to be best fit for us just trying to decide on offset for rims, does anyone have any opinion on what minimum clearance is ok between inside of tyre and tractor. Thanks

Update on the Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot

Written by Lisa Applin

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.

We are piloting the scheme to...
