Hey y’all. I’m looking at new rear tires for my off road mower and I’m not quite sure what to get. I was thinking about running 22s but the ground clearance gain isn’t big enough to matter to me. I think I want to stick with 20s so it stays level with the 15” fronts. Also there are more 20” tires for a 8” rim. I really want tires with a flatter profile so I don’t wear my tires out on the road as fast. Right now my top picks are SunF A051, Carlisle super lug, or SunF A003 knockoffs. I know a lot of people like mud lites or bear claws but with a locked diff I’m worried about running those.
I do like the super lugs but they are pretty pricy and the tread depth is kinda low. Let me know what you think. My favorite is the A051.

If road use is a thing for you then stay away from ag tires. They do good in mud at slow speeds but on the blacktop they’ll kill your kidneys.

It partly depends on what kind of terrain you plan on spending most of your time on but I agree with @Rustbucket Garage to pass on the AGs unless you're machine is going to be more utilitarian. I have a set of the MaxAuto style and can't say (yet) how they do in thick mud but for road, gravel, hard pack and sand they're decent, if I had to choose though I'd go with the A051 as they look like the best all around that could handle everything fairly well. Just my 2 cents!

Well I live in North Carolina where we don’t have dirt, we have clay. It’s either hard pack or peanut butter and no in between. I ride on hard pack, in grass, on the road, and in mud. I think the A051s will be a good all around and they should grab in reverse too which is important because sometimes I need to backup my trailer. I like the price tag on the MaxAuto but I don’t think they’re going to do too good in the mud. I’m worried to see how the A051s hold up on the road as I think they are a softer tire but hey I can’t have it all in one tire.
