R4 tires, also known as industrial tires, are wide, durable tires designed primarily for use on hard surfaces such as pavement and gravel. They offer excellent traction on harder surfaces, such as construction lots, and are less aggressive on grass than an R1 tire. An R4 tire is more aggressive than an R3 tire, however, it is less aggressive than an R1 tire. The depth of the R4 tread is approximately 70 percent deeper than that of an R1 tire.R3 tires, also known as lawn tires, are designed to minimize damage to turf with a shallower tread depth.
These tires are usually a good choice for compact tractors that will be used primarily for mowing lawns or for working on lawns or gardens. R4 tires are sometimes referred to as “industrial” tires and share a composition and tread pattern common to tires used in industrial equipment, such as skid steer loaders and some forklifts. The tread of R4 tires has a barred pattern like that of an agricultural tire, but is thinner.R4 tires are a multi-purpose option that has a more aggressive tread than a grass tire, but less so than an agricultural tire. If the tractor operator is careful, an R4 tire will not destroy grass or dry surfaces and will distribute weight a little more evenly than an agricultural tire.
This makes them a popular choice for tractors used in a variety of applications.The performance of R4 tires can vary depending on the terrain they are used on. On dry terrain, they perform similarly to R1W tires. However, when the going gets tough, R1W tires perform better due to their increased aggressiveness. This makes them a good choice for navigating through uneven and rugged terrain.Another factor to consider when choosing between different types of tires is the tread design.
Different tread designs can dramatically affect performance in different environments. For example, the zig-zag hybrid pattern found on some B series tractors provides increased traction in wet or slippery conditions.In conclusion, R4 tires are a great option for those looking for a multi-purpose tire that offers good traction on hard surfaces while still being gentle enough to not damage grass or dry surfaces. They are also a good choice for navigating through uneven and rugged terrain due to their increased aggressiveness compared to other types of tires.
