Just experimenting, but here is a pic of our 2188.


1996 2188 AFS, Bish Bin, Redekop chopper, 1015 with 8 belt Melroe. This is combining winter wheat last year before the AFX rotor was installed.

Why do you use the diamond tread tire? Only time I have seen them is on the hillside. I would thinkyou would want the tractor lug tire for flat-land uses in case of mud.??

Smooth ride. It has always been Dad's preference to have the diamond tires because you don't get the side to side rocking that bias ply lug tires have. We have heavy clay soils (60+% clay) that gets rock hard when it dries out. We don't combine in mud. It just doesn't rain enough where we are to have a problem with it.
Radial lugs don't do it as much with their softer sidewall and lower pressures. These tires are just about shot, so when they are replaced I'll replace them with radial lugs probably.

I use a set of 30.5 firestone radials and I actually don't feel uch of anything at all.

Real nice looking 2188, and beautiful scene. Could make a nice postcard!
