Farmall M front tire size

Thu Nov 10, 2005 9:12 pm

What size front tires should I buy for my 1951 narrow front M?

THANKS!! P.Womble

If memory serves, it would be a 5.00 / 5.50 X 15

The standard size was 6x16.

OOPS! shoulda looked first..... :oops:

I put 6.50 x 16 on my '51 M, but it has a wide front. I think 6.00 x 16 would be right for a narrow front.

I've seen both the 5.50 and the 6.00. Either would work fine. The 5.50 sidewall will look very straight on the rim. The 6.00 will bulge a little.

If you plan to do a lot of plowing with it put the 5.50 on the right and 6.0 on the left, that way your arm doesn't get so tired fightiing the steering whell.
