I am remanufacturing my Granddads Farmall 300. I need new 13.6 X 38 rear tires. I want new original style USA made tires. Nothing from china, india or the like. I think it came with Firestones on it. Does anyone know if any are still made in USA? Thanks, Danny

If you want original style, these Carlisles with a 45 degree tread will look a lot more like it than the 23 degree Firestones.http://www.millertire.com/products/tractor-tires/rear-tractor-tires/13-6-38_-12-38/13-6-38-carlisle-farm-specialist-ha/

And that is why I'm still running weathered, hard as a rock rears on my "M"...

I think the Carlisle tires are made in India, but they are the correct tread. I would rather have USA on the sidewall than original tread but both would be real nice.

When I restored the '59 430W JD in 2008 the only domestic tire I could readily find was the SAT 23°Firestone's. My goal on that tractor was to find all four tires of one brand and all made in the U.S.A., it proved to be hard to do and Firestone was my only option.

Firestones are one of the most widely-sold brands. If you live in a farming community there has to be at least one dealer selling Firestones.
Nothing against Miller but unless you live nearby, or plan on going to one of the shows they attend, the shipping will absolutely KILL any savings you get by shopping with them...
Frankly, the Firestones aren't any better than anything made offshore, just way more expensive. They dry rot and weather check sitting in a dark barn just as quick as any of them.
