Country Lore: The Right Mower Tires for Rough Ground

This reader found more appropriate riding-mower tires for his area.

| February/March 2007

Five years ago I retired from Florida and moved to the back woods of Waynesboro, Tenn.

My first riding mower spun out on curves and stuck in small holes. This was disappointing until my son, who owns an ATV store, suggested putting wide knobby tires on the front and tractor tread 1 inch higher on the rear. This change was a revelation! I drove that mower for two years and then passed it on to my son, whose three acres were rougher than mine.

If you mow on rough, hilly ground and need better traction, check with your mower’s dealer about the best tires for your brand of mower.
