Default Ply of 1872 front tires?

Need to replace front tires on my 1872. Don't have blade, snowblower or loader, looking at V61 HD 5-Rib tires, is there any reason I need 6 ply over 4 ply? Where is every one getting them? $70 @ Miller tire about going rate?
Thx

I think those tires are made for Miller like the 23* Firestones so I don't think they are available anywhere else. 4 ply will work fine.

You must have done something wrong. I just went to Millers site, chose the tires you want added them to a cart and estimated shipping and tax to Richmond, VA. It was $32.95.

Good call. I wasn't thinking super cub when I found those.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
