Lawn Mower Tires

FAQ

How to read lawn mower tire numbers and dimensions

For Oregon lawn and garden tires, the numbers are overall diameter, section width, and rim diameter (in that order). Size designations consist of two or three numbers separated by an ‘x,’ dash, or slash mark.
For example, if an Oregon tire has the numbers “16x650-8,” it has an overall diameter of 16”, a section width of 6 ½”, and a rim diameter of 8”.
 

Where do I find the sizing information for my lawn mower tire?

Dimensions are usually listed on the sidewall of the tire.
 

When should I replace my lawn mower tires?

Tires should be replaced when they leak or become worn out or weather checked. The term weather-checking refers to when the tire’s sidewall becomes cracked as a result of exposure to the sun and rain. 
 

How do you inflate a lawn mower tire?

Use an air compressor or tire pump (depending on tire size), making sure to not overinflate. See specs on the side of tire.
