My front tires are bald, cracking around the center of the tread line and have multiple plugs from punctures over the years. Having a hard time holding air at this point. The rears still look like new. Leaning towards just replacing them with the same brand (titan trac loaders, 25-8.5/14). Is there better tires I should consider? These are the original tires on a '04 New Holland tc33da.

Titan brand Trac Loader 25-8.5/14 tires are six (6) ply R4 industrial tires. If you have a FEL most would use some brand of FEL load supportive R4 industrial tires in front. Every R4/industrial tire I have encountered is at least six (6) ply.

If your front tire punctures have cost you unacceptable downtime there are thick (8-ply, 10-ply) industrial tires and/or Kevlar ply 'demolition' tractor tires. Demolition tires are small production run tires, therefore expensive.

Or you can have your new tires foam filled by the tire dealer.

Ebay usually has the lowest prices on specialized tractor tires.

Check your lug bolts everyone. I pulled my front tires for the first time since I bought it in 2005. Let's just say I didn't need the impact wrench.
