Trying to buy lawn mower tires online, as well as other types of lawn and garden tires, can be confusing because there are so many styles, brands and sizes available. Some things to keep in mind are the type of use (commercial vs. residential vs. golf course); the load carrying capacity; how much traction you need (hilly terrain and slopes vs. flat ground) and even the type of shoulder the tire has (round vs. square). If you are mowing commercially you probably want a heavy-duty tire designed to stand up to the rigors of continuous, aggressive use rather than a standard turf tire for the homeowner. A golf course or other specialized terrain may require a tire designed to minimize impact to the turf. The load carrying capacity of a tire is determined by air pressure and air volume. Tire construction determines the constraints on the air pressure and volume. You should always maintain proper inflation to maximize carrying capacity and properly balance loads. Two tires in the same size can have very different characteristics. For example, an 18x8.50-8 four ply Turf Master tire when properly inflated will carry 825 pounds at 22 PSI (pounds per square inch) at 10 miles per hour. But an eight ply Multi Trac C/S in the same size will carry 1,280 pounds at 44 PSI at 10 miles per hour. When thinking about traction, you may need a tire with a more aggressive lug tread pattern if your tractor spends a lot of time on hills while you may choose a more standard turf tread if you are on level surfaces and want to minimize damage to the turf. You may even choose a tire with a ribbed or a smooth tread design in situations where you want less traction. Finally, a rounded shoulder offers a footprint that increases maneuverability while minimizing damage to the turf while turning. These are typically used as steer tires. A squared shoulder is designed to achieve a larger, flatter footprint while providing high flotation, enhanced traction and a more rugged appearance. These are usually found on the drive axle.
