Tyres for hedging tractor

My hedging tractor is on 650/65x38.
Today one of the sidewalls gave up and the rim was on the ground in a matter of seconds.
So basically l am looking at two new rears as l generally don’t like secondhands, and two new fronts as they’re also past their best. Thing is l often thought the 650’s to be a bit wallowy for a hedger so the question is would a 580/70 be a bit firmer or make any difference at all?

For my money, these steel belted BKT tyres are the bee's knees and cat's pajamas for hedge cutting tractors.

A 580 has the same exact height of sidewall so I doubt that will do you any good. I'd say look at a tyre with as high a loadrating as possible, and well, put some more air than 20 psi would be the easiest fix. Although now at 0 psi it might be the least wallowy.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
