BIG tires on an H

Postby Hengy » Tue Dec 04, 2007 4:11 pm

Hey there...

I came across This auction for an H whilst playing around on ebay and I noticed this picture:

Anyone here think that those tires look just a TAD big for the tractor? Kind of makes it look like a C or something like that...

My question is "why?"

Tractor always runs downhill, I guess!

It's hard to tell because of the camera angle but it may have the optional 100" axles. If that's so the big tires may be to avoid tearing up doorways and gate posts. Big Mike would be hard to drive through this door without the tire to look at. The total clearance is less than 1". :shock:

Kinda looks like one of those cartoons with the tractors with the huge tires in back. That angle makes it look like you're buying the tires with, oh by the way, a tractor attached!! :shock:

My H runs 11.2x38's. If you have the standard rims (10" I think) you can go one size higher 12.4's....if you want to run 13"'s then you need to go up a size in rims....

If its factory just stick with 11.2x38's...they run fine and there is no appreciable difference in ride or performance between an 11" or 12" tire.

but there sure is a big difference in price. when I put new rear tires on EJ, the 12.4 were almost twice as high as 11.2s
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Here are a couple of other angles of the same tractor on the ad from Ebay...are those the larger axels of which you speak?

Those tires STILL look huge to me!

Yes, It looks like it to me. The optional axle project 24" beyond the housings, 10 inches farther than standard.

I've 13.6's on mine which IMO makes an H look real good. I did buy new rims and tires to match when I did it.
