When gardening, it is essential that the tires do not damage the growth of the grass or its look. In other words, gardening tires must be extremely delicate to the soil. This is exactly why BKT has developed the Lawn & Garden series of tires.
There are certain features you ought to look for when finding a tire for a specific Lawn and Garden tire: namely agility, strength, and precision. With these features, small tractors and lawnmowers will provide the best results.
Tires made for performing in the field
Among agricultural tires BKT’s Lawn & Garden range stands out mainly in their gentle approach. Additionally, these tires have a long life-cycle, excellent maneuverability, as well as high resistance to punctures. All these features are essential for small tractors and lawnmowers to perform excellent in the field.
Although lawn tractors are very rarely over-loaded, it is still essential for the tires to have high load capacity. Why is this so? The reason is that tires with higher load capacity are more resistant to punctures because their casing is thicker and stronger. This is particularly relevant if you use the lawn tractor in rough terrain with a lot of thorns, or if you use the tractor for other kinds of work than just mowing.
What pattern suits you better?
Every soil is different, every activity is different, so the best answer to this question is always: ask for consultancy to a tire expert. We’re here to help.
Generally speaking, though, BKT’s Lawn & Garden range provides different kinds of tread patterns thought to suit different situations.
Mixed-use turf tires: these tires are the most common among small tractors and lawnmowers. They feature a tread pattern, which creates traction on slippery grass, simultaneously as it prevents digging up and damaging the turf.

All-terrain tires: if you work in fields such as dirt, sand or mud, these tires make a good fit. The large tread blocks and deeper grooves provide traction in loose surfaces. They feature larger space between the blocks to remove debris from the tire.
