OOPS!

Post by PaulArthur »

Just received a pair of Carlisle All-Trails for my GT3235 and mounted them tonight. Both are marked as 25x10.50-12's with the same PR numbers and are mounted on the same 3000 rims. But as you can see below they are WAY different in height and profile. It's strange, but I have heard of this happening before. I got them from Summit Racing and I am sure they will get it sorted out, but nothing is ever simple, is it!

Hmm... that's odd.
Cub Cadet, John Deere, New Holland, bobcat, Chevrolet, and Harley Davidson just a few brands I'm proud to own.

I mean it's odd you didn't go with an Ag tire! :mrgreen:

Nah, I might have went with Ag's if I did a lot of garden work. I like these as they are a very good multi-surface tire. They are very popular for GT service - Deere fits something very similar as OEM on a number of their GT's. I think for landscaping work - which is job 1 this year - they may work better than Ag's. Providing, of course, that I eventually get two that match.

We had a brand new Super come into the dealership back in the late 80s that had mismatched tires like that. They were the Goodyear Softracs and one was about 3" taller than the other with the same air pressure. I probably have a photo of it somewhere.

Another problem is corrected. Called Carlisle and they were very helpful, suggesting that another tire from the same production date/batch should correct the mismatch. They even offered to ship me two new All Trails direct once I confirmed the problem, but Summit found the needed tire in their stock and shipped it to me. Received yesterday and mounted last night, all is well.

I just need a couple more parts to complete the 2nd set of front hydraulics and then I can put the back end of the tractor together, and install my NOS 3-point kit. I will post pictures of the latest stuff shortly.
