R4 tires, also known as industrial tires, are wide, durable tires designed for use on hard surfaces such as pavement and gravel. They are located between the tires R1 and R3 in terms of tread depth and the space between the studs. R4 tires are most commonly used in road or hard terrain applications, and they have a tread depth that is approximately midway between the depth of R1 and R3 tires. These tires are typically made of a more wear-resistant compound that holds up well on asphalt and dirt, making them the ideal choice when working between heavier work and turf projects. R-4 (R) tires are suitable for light industrial services and highway department jobs.
The tread depth of an R-4 tire is approximately 70% of that of an R-1 tire. Most John Deere tractors can be equipped with any of the three tread options, but it's important to choose the right tires for the intended application, terrain and ground conditions.
