Probably nobody makes them anymore if their success in this area is any indication.

I was told to look for them in fencerows because that is where they would end up.   Never usd them but was told they are hard on bearings.  Seems there is no give to them like with rubbber tires.

They work great they almost never get stuck, but what gets them is after sitting in the sun for a couple years they split then mud gets in them then you have a mud packed plastic wheel. Its heavy, very heavy. Why not just get some 38" wheels? That will alleviate a lot of the problem, and a rut filler like this one...http://bighambrothers.com/trackfiller.htm

Mach II I have a few sets of them They are supposed to be 11.2x38. The plastic wheels are a lot shorter than the equivelent tire size. The 11.2x38's are the same height as a 14.9x24 tire and have a lot smaller contact area. They are taller than the recap truck tires though and will go thru more mud without getting stuck. The mud falls out off the plastic wheels so the tread dosent fill up like a tire does. But they cut deeper ruts than tires. I made a huge mistake one year with them. I put a set on a corner system. It was stuck all season and tore up a lot of parts. The next year I put on a set of 18.4x26 tires and barely had a track. I would rank the 11.2x38 Mach II between a 14.9x24 and a recap in their mud abilities. They are working fine where I have them now but I have no plans to buy any more. I have also not had any drivetrain failures with them. So I am not buying the higher shockload claims.

The shockload thing is probably not such a big deal on spud quality ground, but imagining how those things might ride over some of the rock we farm could give a guy nightmares. Our soil types allow us to run regular 11.2-24 with few problems. I even had a tower on a sand field running plain highway truck tires once.

I don't have rock but I have heard about how the rocks destroy the Mach II's. The recaps work fine on almost all of my ground, but I do have some clay areas that require bigger tires.
