I have just obtained a cub lo-boy and want to put turf tires on it.

It depends on which rims you have on the back. Fronts were typically 4.00 x 12 tires and the backs are either 8.3 x 24 or 9.5 x 24 ...either will work. If the tractor is set up for balloon (high floatation) rear tires, I am not sure of the tire size you need... but I am sure that someone else who has more knowledge of these machines will be along to help!

Hi again, Dick... Is this a 154/184/185 lowboy or is it an "old style" lo-boy?

Looks like it's a '58 or '59 Cub LoBoy--Those tires (as Mike mentioned) would be the 8.3x24 or the 9.5x24s
Bring your checkbook, as those babies are running about $250. a pop :shock:

I have the 10" rim turf tires with the 4 1/2 5 lug setup on the front of my int154 cub with the 13.6x16 turf tires on the rear. I got everything from ebay from "hamiltonbob" he is in ohio and parts out 154's. My int154 had the 8,3x24 turf tires on the rear with the 400-12 4 rib tires on the front when i got it.
