Replacements for John Deere Tractor Tires and Zero Turn Mower Tires

What are the best tires for a John Deere lawn mower?

If you have a John Deere lawn tractor or Zero Turn Radius riding mower, we recommend the Carlisle line of lawn and garden tires. Carlisle makes quality tires for John Deere lawn mowers as well as Cub Cadet, Husqvarna, Toro, Jacobsen and most other riding mower manufacturers. If you purchased a used machine, you may not have the best tires for your John Deere, so check your owners manual for the proper size tire. In addition, check your tires for tread wear or dry rot.

Which Carlisle tire is best for the John Deere tractor I have?

All John Deere lawn tractor series utilize turf tires on both front and rear. The Carlisle Turf Saver is the leader in the lawn tractor replacement tire market and one of the most popular mower tires for residential use. They are also original equipment on many lawn tractor brands.

If your property is larger or more sloping, or features rougher terrain, take a look at the Turf Master, The Turf Master features a more durable rubber compound with a deeper tread pattern. Its profile is more optimized for stability and traction. Carlisle Turf Master tires are more often used by commercial users and heavy duty residential applications.

For commercial use, the Carlisle Multi-Trac C/S (Commercial Service) is similar to the Turf Master but features thicker plys with heavy duty sidewalls to resist punctures and blowouts. The Multi-Trac C/S is perfect for commercial mowing applications such as fairways, football fields, baseball stadiums, and cemeteries. The Multi-Trac C/S is available in most popular sizes and is an excellent choice for home use where large lawns or big fields require a high performing mowing tire.

What are the best tires for a John Deere Zero Turn Radius riding mower?

Just like the lawn tractors, the John Deere ZTR riding mowers use a turf tire for the rear tire, so choose a rear tire using the same criteria.

For the front tire you need a straight rib tread tire or a completely smooth tire. Due to the zero turning radius, a turf tire will tear up your lawn during those tight turns.

Carlisle Straight Rib tires are a great rib tire for your John Deere ZTR if you need more traction on hills. This tire can be used on transport vehicles, golf carts, and farm equipment too.

When you absolutely do not want marks on the grass, Carlisle Smooth tires are used many times for front casters on zero turn or ZTR mowers. Carlisle Smooth tires feature a wider surface weight distribution for increased steering and traction. They are a perfect replacement for your worn out tires.

They are available in larger sizes for golf and grounds maintenance equipment.

Which tire size is best for my John Deere lawn mower?

Take a look at the tires currently on your Husqvarna . The tire size should be printed on the sidewalls. For example, In the size 25×8.00-12, the meaning of the numbers is as follows:

  • 25 - The overall height of the tire when mounted and inflated.
  • 8.00 - The overall width of the tire when mounted and inflated.
  • 12 - The diameter of the wheel this tire will mount to.

If you bought a used John Deere, you may want to check the owners manual, just in case the previous owner installed the wrong size tires.
