    Hello, I purchased a small dump trailer a while back which turned out to be actually for use on a cemetery; and has ag tires on it. They are Armstrong 11L-15, and they are the bias ribbed type, high flotation tires. Anyways, I do a fair amount of travel on paved roads in my usage of the trailer and the tires were old and cracked when I got the trailer; and it wasn’t long before they basically shredded to bits and the one of them, the tube actually popped.

    So my question is, what if any is a good replacement that will fit the same, yet provide me with a better lifespan when used on paved roads, and at or close to highway speeds (55 mph)?? I would like if there was a good tubeless radial with some varied tread available that will still be a direct substitute as far as the size and fit for the ones that were originally on it. If you could please point me in the right direction I sure would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much for your time and hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks,

    -Travis

      A number of different manufacturers make tires in your size, DOT approved for highway use up to 55 mph, in F-I straight rib design with bias ply construction.

      As for varied tread in radial that is DOT Approved and able to travel 55 mph, I am not aware of any option.

      I recommend calling your local tire dealer to ask, “could you please let me know available options in an 11L-15 F-I DOT approved for highway use?” Explain your application and have the weight of your equipment ready to ensure proper fitment. DOT approved F-I will provide longevity on the road and correct ply rating will enable you to safely carry the load.

      Great question! Thank You for the Inquiry.

    I am purchasing a Kubota L2501 diesel tractor to use on my ranch not for farming. I will b shredding and clearing mesquites and odd jobs w my loader. Would ag tires or industrial tires be best. One of my concerns is stubble resistance.
    Your advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    • James Tuschner James Tuschner says:

      I recommend choosing Industrial Tires for your application, as smaller void between lugs will better resist punctures and hazards associated with shredding & clearing. Further, Industrial Tire will provide smoother ride on improved surfaces when doing odd jobs. Stubble resistance is usually required for tires used in farming application.
