    sorry for cluttering up the forum with hypothetical bs... but.....
    I've been doing some searching ad I found a high speed ag tire that michelin makes rated for 55 mph... but the smallest size is 42"... the 35's and 33's I find are rated only for 20 mph...

    So does any one make a high speed tractor tire in the 35" range that would hold up to some wheel speed in mud holes, and maybe see some 50 mph driving??

    :p:

    thing is the heavy constuction of the tire and what its used for is what keeps the speed down. but i have seen many ag tires in the mud and seem to hold up o.k. and if you run on the street dont get stoped with non d.o.t. tires.

    so the speed restrictions don't mean they will fly apart, or what? I don't get what they mean, is it just saying that's how fast they will let the equipment go?? dunno its confusing. :o
