Tyre sizes

Recommended Posts

They should fit fine, most rear tyres for big garden tractors in the US and most late model Wheel Horses were 23 x 10.50-12, but for AG purposes 8.50 wide is actually ideal. That said, these are not very good AG tires if you are actually going to work in the field as the lugs are not tall enough or aggressive enough. You also may want to go to a narrower and/or taller tyre up front to aid in steering. If you indeed do use these  in ploughing you might also consider fluid filling the tires with windscreen fluid and weights on the front as well. This hobby gets complicated, lol

You may want to go with something like these

To be honest they are for looks more than anything. The only sticky place it will get is a wet show ground of a bit of snow in winter.

If they are for show then I would be tempted to use 9.50 or 10.50 wide AG tyres. The picture in the ad posted is of a 10.50, an 8.50 AG tyre is much narrower than the one in the photo. Many companies do this (use generic photos) and I wish they wouldn't.

i use bkt's for plowing, they look the same and work fine as long as i dont plow to deep. these should do fine

I have 26x12-12 for discing, they might be too wide for ploughing, but I have a separate tractor for that with 25 x10-12 ITP 589s, the are both on 8.5 inch rims so they are only about 11 and 9.5 inches wide. I used a shorty hub and 10 inch front wheels and tires to increase ground clearance
