Tires

Postby alboe » Sun Aug 06, 2017 2:47 pm

I am already seeing a wide spread difference on tires along with numerous Brands, with some of the brands I'm not familiar with. What are Three, (3), decent Brands? (Trying to get into good habits right from the beginning and get good parts for the girls). I guess Carlisle Farm Specialist is through Wal-Mart??

One tractor has Goodyear 8.3 24 and the other has General Farm Trac 33-24 on a 7" rim. Both are 4 ply. (Rears).

I'm seeing Carlisle 8-16 6 ply starting out at ($93.83)

We had a recent discussion on this board about purchasing rear tractor tires.

If the tires are still round and hold air, use them. Just my opinion.

Visit you local tires shops and price tires and tubes. Then consider shipping cost in the online advertisers price.

I purchased a set for my standard Cub years ago from a local tire shop. Identical matching Firestone tires, one tire made in India and the other in Argentina.

Consider that tractor tires are not like vehicle tires. Unless you damage a rear tractor tire beyond repair, they will last for 40 or 50 years.
I have an excuse. CRS.

My 49 came with new tires. But they are too big. 8.5 x 24 and they look funny. But if they'll last 40-50 years I'll never be able to replace them...

Hi Randy, looks like an Autolite distributor. Not very common to see one like that.

Almost look like a 9.5. Never saw an 8.5.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Hi,

Nice looking Cub Randy. :)

Stan, it has a Delco distributor, Jim B. and I helped him identify it months ago, and he bought new parts for it.

Hey, my bad. Actually I didn't even call it the right brand name. Looking at the vertical position I should have said Prestolite, it looks like this:

Yes! And it runs like a brand new tractor. I took the pictures with me and the distributor cap to NAPA and they fixed me right up. Plugs, plug wires, cap, rotor, condenser and coil. Feels like a new tractor!

With the starter problems I'm having now, it's a pity I can't crank start it. Now I'm wishing for a 6v mag system.

Hi,
Glad the Cub runs better, Randy.

IH offered the 9.5" x 24 rear tires on Cubs, and the 8.3 x 24" also, after tires were made in those sizes, they were 8 x 24" and 9 x 24" years ago.

The 1965 Cub brochure shows they had the 8.3", and the 9.5" also.
Here is a page from the 1965 Cub owner's manual showing that they did have both in the inflation table. :)

All you need is the crank, Randy. You don't need a mag system to crank start it.
