Sounds like decent tires, what brand are they??

I actually am overstocked on tires right now, new, used, and original to the tractors I own. And yes, I have 2 to 3 sets of tires (mounted) per tractor I own LOL.

Can't wait to know pricing too though. I am always on the lookout for a good deal on new/used tires.

I'm curious to know the widths and the tread depths for the rear lug tires. Most lugs out there are around 15/32nds, some like the Cheng Shin Jumbo are 31/32nds. I'm sure there may be some downsides to having tall lugs, but I've always thought agressive lugs looked the best. Will there be front rib tires available too?

Don't know about the Bolens, but 8-16's for Case/Ingersoll's would be nice. Possibly 9.5-16's too.

What rim width do you need for the bolens?


The "STD. AGRI. TIRE KIT" for the Bolens large Frames had 27 x 8.50 - 15 tires. That's from the one of the Large Frame Parts manuals. There was no mention of the rim width.
