my dad's 5075e mfwd has 675 hrs it has had light road travel ag style tires on the front and are slick as glass. It has not been kept in four wheel drive or had any type of abuse. It is mostly used to put out hay and pull a rake and tedder. Is this the average life span of front tires on a mfwd tractor.

That's going to depend a lot on the actual tire, the alignment of the front tires, and the amount of road running.  That seems like an extremely short amount of time to smooth a set of fronts with light road travel.  Does it have a loader on it?

it does have a loader. The tractor was bought new and has never been touched.

What brand and model of tire?  Some do last better than others up front . . . Should get at least 2-3000 hours out of MFD fronts though.  

 

Did the lugs wear down evenly?

You can reverse the direction of tread to decrease tractor tire lug wear. I have some Continental brand rear tractor tires that have minimal blacktop wear performing custom hay baling. I have no idea the 100's of miles these tires have traveled on blacktop in the last 20+ yrs.  Granted frt MFWD tires are known for accelerated wear even when in 2WD

I get about 400-800 hours out of front mfwd tires with some road travel.  Michelins last much much longer (have a set of 14.9x24 with 3000 hours) but cost at least double.

Check your toe in and inflation pressures.  Toe in should be near zero. Be aware that outside of the right front tire is going to wear faster if you drive on the right hand side of crowned roads.  Also if everything is normal the outside half of each front tire will wear more than the inside half because of the chamber of the axle.

Swap them side to side for more wear on the other side of tread.

Makes me wonder if the fronts are disengaging from fwa when they are supposed to? e series have been known for their electrical mis-functions.

A dealer suggested it has the wrong axle. I don't even know if that is possible. But it is for sure wearing more on the outside middle. I would estimate it having less than 100 miles on road, he loads it and hauls it from farm to farm.  How do you measure the toe in?

How do you measure the toe in? 

 

Measure from inside tire to inside tire on the very front end and then go behind the tires and measure from inside tire to inside tire from behind the front tires. And as Gearclash stated earlier, you want as close to zero(neutral) on your fwd tractor. I measure from the inside of a cleat horizontally on 4wd.

Looking at the picture I’d say they are toed in way too much and under inflated. Loaders are hard on MFD tires, easy to overload the tire, then you start to see cracking prematurely. However, to me, it is worth something to lose some tire life running under inflated sometimes to gain a better ride and more productivity. Tires are a wear item after all, within reason of course.

The 5e stock tires are the bargain basement 6ply Galaxy agritrac ii.

the 5075e fronts run about 200 a pop as opposed to decent right-sized radials that are close to 500 each plus the larger rims.

  The same tractor in UK and Europe wears 320/70r24’s on front and 480/70r28 on back standard..Far more substantial and way better suited for for the tractor, especially for loader work.

   Additionally, less ground pressure and a better ride.

My new 5075e gets delivered this coming week and is headed right for the tire shop!

I’ll sell the takeoffs and cover close to 1/2 the upgrade, about 1500$
Cheers, Mac

If you call that worn out you should see how far I take tires.

Lol, I think like a lot of farmers, we take them down the tube sticking out of the holes wore through the casing.
