Calcium chloride was added to the water used for liquid ballast in tractor tires because it prevents the water from freezing.

Unlike used car tires, used tractor tires are frequently a good investment. Since tractors are generally slow-moving and work over soft surfaces, they experience far less friction damage. Since tractor tires can last for years or even decades, purchasing used tires can save you hundreds of dollars.Used versus new tractor tiresPurchasing used tires instead of new ones makes sense. First, since tractor tires are frequently available at auctions, carefully watching and attending events can get you an excellent deal. Also, many tractor dealerships either sell used tires or can put you in touch with a used-tire seller. Since they are so readily available, good deals are easy to find.Deciding if the tires are goodWhen you look at used tractor tires, analyzing their condition is not the same as doing it to car tires. First, tractor tires do not have deep treads, which is the easiest way to tell if car tires are bad. Also, unlike the myth that barely used tires are best, tractor tires are different. Not being used means that dry rot could have eaten out the insides of the tire, making them almost useless. A little recent wear is good.Used tires need to be used. Stationary tires can contain dry rot damage. Deciding the type of tire neededMany types of tractor tires exist. The one you need all depends on the purpose and the surface. Deep lug tires work on extremely muddy surfaces. Agricultural tires and diamond-treaded tires run through fields without tearing the rows and dirt. Make sure you purchase the correct tire for your needs.Used tractor tires are preferable to new ones because they can save hundreds of dollars. A few minutes of research and a little knowledge can put all that money right back in your bank account.


There are many online tractor tire resellers. Most large tire manufacturers sell tractor tires. For example Firestone. You can compare prices on tractor tires at BizRate.com if you want to find the lowest price online.


Tractor tires take alot of wear and tear so you want to find the most durable for the money. I would also consider buying your tractor tires with a warranty.
