REAR TIRES

Postby tomstractor » Mon Mar 09, 2020 8:07 am

Has anybody used the Bridgestone 8.3x24 tires from Simple Tire? They seem to be cheaper at about $126 including shipping.

I didn't find any Bridgestone tractor tires at Simple Tires web site, can you provide a link?

My mistake, under specs it says 24" diameter. I had searched for 8.3x24 farm tire and this came up. Where is the best place to buy tires?
I need all 4 and a rear rim

Check out millertire.com, or a local AG tire place if there's one near you. Best deals might be had locally as tractor tires cost a bit to ship.

....and a local shop may charge less for mounting tires they sold, unless you do that yourself.

Tom,
Congrats on the '48.

Simple Tire does have several different 8.3x24 Ag Tire brands.

https://simpletire.com/catalog?search=83024&subtype=6&width=8.3&ratio=-&rim=24

Not sure if an 8.3 x 24 will fit on the good rim. That had a 6x24 tire on it as I recall, narrow width rim.

Hello all. I busted a rear tire yesterday on my 64 cub. What brand of tire on there do y’all recommend? I’d like to have the Goodyear rear tires but they are a little out of my price range. Brand size and ply rating. I think my rim is the 7x24

I would visit your local tire dealer that carries ag tires and shop prices. Almost all ag tires are made offshore these days, even Goodyears.

If you have a local tire shop you regularly deal with its probably smart to try them. I got mine from a retiring tractor supply guy with the idea of mounting them myself. After the first one I took the second to the tire shop I use. They mounted it for FREE. They told me they carried the size and their price would have been the same.

I got fronts there and they were reasonably priced and mounted for free as well.

I finally got 2 rear tires for the Cub, 8.3x24 BKT brand with tubes and mounting and tax for $360.00, local tire shop. Bought new rims on Amazon, $88 each and new ft tires and tubes on Ebay They all look nice . Now that its rolling I rebuilt the mag, needed a new coil, pts and condenser. Rebuilt the carb, mounting holes where stripped out, helicoiled them, Now
going to start on the engine.

Tom,
Sounds like it’s coming along nicely. Need some progress photos!
How did the inside of the gas tank clean up?
