    Really? Were they Firestone? I've heard that Dunlop RT40's were about the best. My Father always got on well with the early Goodyear Radials (the ones with 'Radial' printed between the lugs) And Kleber, although they used to crack and perish after a while...

    For that sort of money (or less!) I'd rather buy the very fresh & on excellent rubber 5820 J Deere at a local dealer

    Hi David,

    Hope all is well. Fine here, will be "released" soon on parole

    Back in 'the day' we only ever had the Goodyear traction sure-grip cross-plies so no experience with them, always looked as if they were better suited to US (dry) conditions.
