Picked up 3 tires at the show in Dover. Finally got some time to put them on......I had planned on putting these on my T-63....but to my surprise.....(and not paying attention) I put them on a better set of 4 lug rims thinking they would fit all the bush hog models.....now looking back....this earlier T-63 has 5 lug hubs...and my other T-63 had bolt on hubs no lugs......so definitely some difference in these earlier models.....I pulled the 4 bolt hub off one of my earlier D4-10 to see if it would fit the T-63....but looks like the spindle is shorter on the 63 and the bearings would not slide on......so guess these are now going on my newer D4-10......as usual something that looked simple has become complicated!! Any way I was pretty proud of these 3 new tires for $35 bucks. I wanted to try these 16 x 5 x 8 to see how they looked on my regular rims.....The left one on the rim is the 5" wide tire...the right one is the 6.5" tire not on a rim......will have to see what they look like when I put them on tomorrow.

They look great on those slightly wider rims. I figured they'd look fine. Great buy! :thumbs:

Brian, it was a guy about 3 booths/trailers in as you walked into the grounds......he had a bunch of old tires and rims leaned up against the trailer......and there were 2 of the16-5-6 tires and 1 16-6.5-6 tire .....brand new....leaned up with the used ones.....got a better deal cause I bought all 3 and I am sure because 1 tire had no match.....it was just what I was looking for....the implement style tire but narrower than the stock tires that are usually on them.....I was wondering if they would look okay on these stock rims since they usually have the 6.5 wide tires on them....daniel said he did not think there would be an issue and he was right. There is no name on them but "made in the usa" stamped on them.....anybody got an idea who they may have been made by? Would love to get another one to match the 6.5" tire.
