These tires are a great quality upgrade from the Sears turf savers that came on my 1990 craftsman lawn-tractor. NOTE: As others may have commented, these tires were sent to me with plastic straps that deformed the tires original shape which made putting them on more difficult. Word to the wise, put a stick or something in side them to push the tread back out, while sitting in the hot sun for a couple days. despite them being out of shape and it taking some time to get them on...i'd do it again considering the quality of these tires. Carlisle do yourselves and your customers a favor and ship them each separately or put them in a freakin' box with no straps!!! You'll make your customers VERY happy and probably sell more tires! 4 stars because of that! Don't try putting these tires on without tire irons and at least one pry bar. I got these (Motion Pro 08-005 11" Tire Iron - Pair $9.99) and they worked very well. Expect at-least 30 minutes per tire for removal and installation. I had a couple that would not seat perfectly on the rim, so I heated the tire with a heat gun, used lots of soapy water on the tires rim and the rim itself, and kept filling the tire with air, releasing the air, and repeating until it seat properly, also helped to stretch the tire a bit with the tire iron before re-filling. Hope to post video later if it helps anyone else. :-)

I priced these exact tires out at my local commercial lawn care equipment distributor and at the regional discount tire chain. In both cases the tire was going to cost me around $110 plus tax. I've never bought tires from Amazon but checked them out on a whim. They had them and they were less than $70 delivered from Carlisle! I was so pleased! They arrived more quickly than most of my PRIME purchases even though they said it might take a day longer.
My experience has been that Carlisle tire last longer than off brand turf tires. I used to try and save money on knockoff brands but quickly learned that the useful life of off-brand turf tires is sometimes half of what I could get out of a Carlisle. I have observed this with several sizes of turf tires as well as trailer tires.
Performance Note: I got 700 hours out of these tires on the back of an Exmark Vantage. This usage would obviously be better or worse depending on many variables but its a good ballpark.

Our lawn often has these goat head weeds that grow up in it and the burrs can flatten a tire in a heart beat. The old two ply tires I had were just about useless. These do not go flat. A good purchase.

very good traction on the hills and does not rip up the turf.
This tire met my requirements when it comes to daily mowing

After getting it on a riding mower and mowing couple of acres of rough terrain, the tire seems good so far, and compared to my old tire, it gives me a bit more aggressive tread for lumpy uneven fields.
A couple of caveats:
1. As one other reviewer noted, it is *very* difficult to get this tire on the rim. This is probably owing to the size (8-inch) diameter and the fact that if you are asking for a heavy duty tire, as this one is, it is thicker and not as easy to flex with your hands. I found a help video showing the use of pair of very small C-clamps to hold the position of the tire while you go around with a pry bar. Without discovering that method, I would *never* have been able to get the tire on the rim with just hand tools.
2. I am using tubeless, though many will advise for lawn tractors in general, to put a tube in for extra protection. I found out the hard way that having the tube in there makes it real difficult to get the older tire off of the rim -- the old tube wrinkles and jams in between things. So I decided to skip the tube this time around, and yes, it is working fine without a tube. I just had to get a valve stem -- one buck at the local auto parts store -- and Voila!

This tire is a bargain compared to what my john deere dealership offered. They wanted $85 for the same ply tire. Some have said that the tire was damaged in shipping, but mine came in a plastic bag and wasn't folded over or anything. Only time will tell, but I think I'll get a lot of miles out of this tire.

This is a great replacement tire for my Skag mower and cost about half what all local dealers wanted for a similar product.

I have a John Deere LX280 Lawn Tractor that I bought in 2005. It came with Carlisle tires as original equipment, and they have never presented a problem in terms of losing traction, damaging the turf grass, keeping tire pressure, etc. I finally wore out the front tires and needed new ones. The back tires are still in great shape, and didn't need replacing. I wanted to go back to OEM tires, and I was able to thanks to Amazon and Pete's tires. The pricing, was good, and the shipping was excellent.

The tractor rides as good as the day it was delivered.

This is a far better tire than what came on my riding mower. Inflation to twice the original pressure so tire feels considerably more stable on our hill. Construction seems to be very good so I expect it to last quite a few years.

WORD UP on SHIPPING!!!!

If you read the other comments about these tires being scrunched into a box, let me inform you that the shipping has "improved"

By improved I mean, the tires are apparently no longer being scrunched into a box! Now they are shipped without a box! My tires arrived in tire-shape, unscathed by travel, with two areas of plastic wrap keeping them together. No complaints from me, as the other reviews had me a bit nervous.

The tires were relatively easy to mount - I didn't use the hot water method. Instead, I rubbed the sealing edge with a bit of dish-soap. I also had a straight thick flat head screwdriver, and a crowbar on hand to help get the final bit over the rim. If you plan to air up at home, and don't have a compressor, then buy or borrow a ratchet strap. wrap it around the mounted tire, running along the center of the tread, and crank it relatively tight until you get a seal. Just be sure to release it as soon as the tire makes a full seal to the rim edges during inflation.
