Kind of what thought, I believe that mine are the optional tires, I have only seen maybe ten of these units in my life (only one in person) the ones I have seen on E-bay/Craig's list all have 29X12X15 rear and 20x8x10 front. My odd tire size makes sense because of the PTO, smaller tire bettter ground contact? What do you think?

, I wonder if this means a man can put a 15 inch car tire on the back if he wanted to,lol,,


A wide truck tire would fit. Tire and wheel is a different story. The 195 has a 6 lug pattern, not sure what would fit but just a flying guess would be a 3/4 ton wheel. I have never measured the bolt pattern. A 6 or 8" snow tire would not fit the wheel too good. if you could get the bead set, you would loose a few inches in the height.

Bmerf,, I really not sure on which is better but it seems to me that the smaller tire would be better contact to a point,, But I can't say for sure bout that,,

Back in the day, I had an old ’78 Chevy Blazer with 6 lug wagon style wheels and I know some of the import trucks also ran 6 lug, but that vehicle is long gone. Wondered if they were the same bolt pattern? If so, would make for a nice upgrade on a pulling type tractor.

Looks like the bolt pattern is 6X6.5. That should match chevy,gmc and toyota.
The 195s are too heavy to be competitive in most sanctioned pulls. they weigh around 1200# empty. Throw on a driver and a few hundred pounds of weights and that would put you in the high dollar classes.

The smaller fords with the 5 lug tx (standard GT hubs) can bolt on 5X4.5 ford and jeep wheels.

This thing has( had, it got changed) a hydro out of a JD 116

Let us know what you find out Russ, I was thinking a spare set of wheels with some ags mounted might be just the ticket for plowing. Oh well, that is way the future, still have to find a plow!

BTW, nice buggy :thumbs: rat88.

I kept the turf take offs when I bought the aggies for the back. I have been looking for an extra set of wheels for mounting the turfs(but not real hard) . Finding a set of 12" wide wheels is gonna be the hard part. There may be a few sets of old wagon wheel out the somewhere, I have not hit any junk yards yet. After looking on CL a few times, all I have found was $250 each wheels. I dont need the turfs that bad!
