The tractors that had a International 105 sickle mower usually had 15” fronts.

I noticed that you had 15” fronts about 1.5 - 2 years ago when you posted a picture. They look good!


Yep, they still look good. I got one of the new 8.3-24 tires mounted today. No problems at all..... just cost a bit to get it mounted. I will take a picture when I get everything together...including the correct radiator this time.


Did Cooling Solutions make it right with you on the radiator?

Both tires mounted and one on the tractor. Looks great. When I removed the right side to take to the tire service place I realized that I couldn’t get it in my truck. The right tire was full of water. Inside the tube for weight I guess. The valve stem core was corroded and wouldn’t come out. I sawed off the valve stem and drained the water for about an hour. I drained about 75% of the water I suppose. I had to use my front end loader to load it in my truck. The tire service place charged me $100 to change the tire. This included cleaning up the rim. First one cost $55. About $35 in tips for the guys.
I couldn’t do it myself.
