Titan implement tires have sidewall issues rather quickly. Have a McCormick CX95 that came with Goodyears on is and the fronts made 700 hours and were absolutely shot, put a set of Michelins on and replaced them 3000 hours later, but the rear Goodyears are in decent shape yet and never been touched, which leads to my next thought...

I've heard its mostly a problem with the USA made Goodyears that fail prematurely and foreign made ones have far less issues. It makes me wonder if that is why some of us have no issues with them while others of us have nothing but issues.

I glad that you guys get along great using them, tire trouble always chaps my ass. Unfortunately trying them again just really is not worth the headache for me.
Guessing you're right.
I have a pickup with Goodyears on it and they seem to be holding up and a tractor with goodyears that are at least 30years old it doesn't do anything major but they hold air and look ok yet. Had nothing but trouble with titan/goodyears on 3 different tractors in the last 15years. I'd run Chinese knockoffs before I'd buy a set. But some guys have great luck with them....

I'll keep my tracks mainly for hauling equipment between farms - much nicer to haul an 11' wide tracked tractor than a 14'+ wide wheeled tractor.

Anyone heard anything new about the Trelleborg PneuTrac? This seems to me to be a bigger breakthrough than just making a shorter sidewall and a larger wheel.
