The tires on the 1070 are Firestones Deep Treads it came from the factory with. There are a few deep cracks in the face of the tire, I can't believe the tire hasn't opened up when plowing in the furrow. Wonder how the new Firestone Deep Treads are? Has anyone bought a set? The Taurus tires came on the 2594. The factory duals have the same tires, same amount of tread. I don't know what to think of them. The former tractor owner said they switched from Firestone to Taurus because they lasted longer. I had a 1175 that had Taurus tires on it, the tread was great yet but the sidewalls were very badly cracked. The 1175 had been used on a manure tanker, I was told manure can be hard on certain brand tires. I think the Taurus tire is really a BF Goodrich, which is maybe a Michelin now?

Of the few things I am able to do, I was actually trained as a tire vulcanizer and I spent 7 years as a commercial tire salesman.

There is a difference between thread rubber and sidewall rubber.

When a tire is made the body of the tire looks like a barrel then the thread rubber is rolled on.

The thread rubber is made for abrasion while the sidewall rubber is made for a certain amount of flex and its ability to resist weather cracking.

Different companies especially over-seas companies maybe using a cheaper type of rubber for the sidewall. That may explain why your sidewalls are looking rougher on some tires more than others.

The old American brand made tires were the best. BFG tires were excellent tires especially the Rice and Cane tires itís a shame they are out of business.

The tire that has a split in the thread can be repaired using a product thatís made by rema called A&B compound. It is a cold vulcanizing compound.

I have a pair of Goodyear Traction Torque's on my 1030 and they have large cracks that look like a lug is going to rip off. They've been there for 10+ years. I even took one off, and it's like new inside. I'm going to run them until they are bald.

Those old Deep Treads were the best tire ever made in a bias tire hands down,in my opinion.We had a set of them on a loader tractor that we put 7200 hours on and they were not wore out when we sold the tractor.The new ones are radials and although they have deeper lugs than regular tires they don't seem to be as heavy duty as the old ones.Time will tell I guess.

I bought a new recap last year. Never heard of such a thing. Has no name on the side wall. Do any you have any experiences with recapped tractor tires?

I have been using Dynatorque GY Take offs on my 8920 rears. Decent sercive out of them and I got 6 take offs from a 4x4 for 250ea with just less than 1/2 tread. Should last me quite awhile.

My dads MX135 has a new style goodyears and they arent very good, he just ordered 23* firestones for the front @ 2,300hrs and they seem to be better but only loaded 2 loads of hay so far so who knows. The mx125 has 1,500hrs and its tires look almost new with firestones.

My cousins valtra has michelins and we replaced the fronts with contenintal's and they seem good (under a yr on them), the michelins split the side walls in 5yrs up front.

Personally IF I buy new it will be firestone 23*, best value IMO.

Never been a fan of goodyears. The look horrible on equipment. Much rather spend a little more and get firestones.

I sold recaps for 7 years so I may have a little experience.

More than likely your recaps are not a factory recap but where done by a private recapper; since you have No name on the tire it maybe a remold.

When they do a remold they buff the entire tire from bead to bead and remold the tire.

There used to be Top caps, ĺ caps and remolds on the market.

A place in Missiouri specialized in large tire recapping like grader and earth mover tires. I suspect that who ever did your tires is a big outfit like them.

Could you please tell us the name of the tire store/place where you bought your tires?

If someone is selling a true remold tire it maybe worth checking into.
