Grain Cart Tires

I have a 1000 bus grain cart that i want (need) to put new tires on. They will be 900/60R-32 or maybe just 800/65R-32? Just wondering what ply of tire i should be getting?

It came with 35.5lx32 diamond tread tires that are 20 ply. But they seem kinda hard to find.

Will you be able to reuse your rims with these other tires? Get grip tires in a R1W radial. They have a larger footprint than diamond tread tires and have a higher load rating. Get the heavier ply tires as well.

I agree with bmich on the R1 radials, even heavy ply tires are likely to be overloaded when cart is full.

I would price out some IF 900's. Lower air pressure, bigger foot print, less compaction.

Turns out i couldn't use my old rims on any other tire. My old rim was a 3 piece rim only meant for the 35.5lx32 tire. It has a different bead then anything else.
So had to get new rims and went with a 900/60R-32 tire

That's interesting, so must be a different bead profile or something. The 900 tires seem to be the standard size Unverferth goes with on their 1000 bushel carts and I know grossly over weighted if the cart is full but I don't think the 35.5 is rated to carry more, just that its a larger tire. The tires on our cart are Mitas and its actually amazing to see how much the tires spread the load out on soft ground for only two tires. If your other tires were bias, I doubt you will have taken a step backwards. This is the tire that came with our 9250 cart.

Ive used a 1000bus cart with 35.5lx32, I wouldn't even think about anything less than a 1250. You'll pay the difference in compaction/future yield loss.

If you had to buy all new that would be the time to think about tracks. I have some Elmers that i swap between Aircart and Graincart and works awesome.
