What is the Best Combine Tires

I have a R62 that is getting kinda barefoot and could use new tires. They are 30.5L-32 16ply. You fellas have any recommendations? Thanks for any advice.

I recommend Firestone. Had Goodyear tires and they cracked out on the sidewalls near the lugs. The dealership also told us they've seen the same thing with many Goodyear tires.

Firestones or Michelins, We won't run good for a years on anything, they don't clean out for us and are rough backing up.

Firestones and Goodyears have been junk for us.

Michelin only. For tractor tires weve had recent good results with BKT for the smaller stuff.

We took our Goodyears off and put Firestones on. The Firestone is a nice combine tire. Goodyear cracked at the bead and by the lugs.

(however this year the Firestones got to spend the season in the corner of the shed. Soucy tracks saved our harvest. The tires are back on the combine now though.

There's a beefy 18ply tire in OZ called Harvest. They seem good. Many of them on big chaserbins now.

Its okay to use Monopoly money on strippers with fake boobs.

IMO a combine tire needs to age well, since they rarely get the tread wore off, and I have yet to find anything that ages like a Firestone, best rubber compound out there IMO.

V876 and SWFarmService like this.

Our farm purchases a combine soley on its ability to do an excellent job in all of our crops, while being fuel efficient, reliable, ruggedly built, and easy to repair. That is why we choose a Gleaner.
