650/85 Michelin. You won’t have any problems. Will do almost everything you need at 15psi. But if you are prepared to adjust the pressure or keep the speed down you will be able to run them at 8psi and carry a decent amount of weight.

They do take a long time to inflate due to the volume. Would be worth fitting earth mover valves and buying an inflator to fit (£50 ish) if you want to alter the pressure often .

I don’t think you can beat Trellies for putting power to the ground but we have had a rear set start splitting - the fronts went on to do over 7500hours though.
If your mixing work and don’t want to be changing pressures all the time I think the Michelins will probably be your safest bet

Michelins are great on everything, except snow and ice. I'd fit a compressor to the tractor, if the pressure needs to be altered often.

I do like Trelleborgs, better all year round but the splitting sidewalls put me off some.

As said earlier 85/38” is a taller Tyre then the 42”. The 38” looks lot better too. The only down side of the 85/38” is they have a deeper side wall which requires you to keep the tyres a little harder with heavy loads on. Friend has them on a 6195R and loves them.

No they aren’t. The rears are both the same height. The fronts are different
