Well, the tires on my '73 140 H3 are shot and mismatched so I think its almost time for a new set. I really want to go with beefy tires and was thinking about ordering a set of 26x12x12s Ags to replace my 23x10.5x12s and a set of 18(.5?)x8x8 Multi-Ribbed tires to replace the fronts. I really like the look of the 140s with bigger tires, but here is mine so far. So where did you guys order yours? I was thinking of going with Miller.

I got the tires for the 120 from Miller Tire. I went with turfs on front and a hybrid tire on the rear. My dad (in Ohio) has been getting stuff from Miller for over 10 years. I looked local but they could not touch Miller's prices.

I just placed an order with our local dealer for miller tire. Stayed with the 23x10.50 size in the rear but am getting the Carlisle ags, also decide to get a set of 16x6.50 ags for the front. I saw a pic of a 140 set up like that and really liked it. This is however one of my workhorse tractors, so if it turns out to be really difficult to steer or something they will probably get swapped out for a set of ribs.

I haven't ordered from Miller but I have heard from so many that have and I have never heard anything bad. I'm gonna need new ones soon for my ST12 and that's probably where I'll be ordering

I tried the 26-12-12 ag tires on my JD140 H3 but they were so wide and tall that they hit the real of the mower deck. Went back to 23-10.50-12 Carlise ags.

Someone on here did up a 314 with the larger 26 and 18" tires and it looked really good. The deck clearance may be the biggest issue you are facing. The other issue I can think of is that you won't have room under the rear fenders for chains if you use them for plowing/blowing. You will also get more speed and less torque when using the larger rears.

I have printed off the cart from online tire shops (including shipping) and the local tire shops will try to match it. They couldnt even get close to the $160 for 29x12x15 superlugs.
You gotta watch'em ,sometimes they will tack on some extras when they add up the bill. I have had them sneak in a disposal fee when I brought in new rims to get the tires mounted and a mounting fee for tires that I didnt get mounted. I mount my own tires now.

I put the 26x12x12s and golfcart tires on the front of my LGT100 trail tractor. It gets around real good.
Didnt have a clearance issue on the back.I have had these bolted up to a few different tractors for a test fit. They fit the gilsons real good,but I did have to raise the rear fenders 1 1/2" on the '74. wheelhorse had a back space issue
. 4 bolt wheels coverted to fit the slip ons in the front.

I'm putting new 23x10.50x12 ags on rear and I am thinking I made a mistake trying to save money and ordered  a pair of 16x6.50x8 4 ply tubless turf guards.They look good with a deep tread but I don't know , if I can ever spread them apart enough to mount without using tubes. Can't send pictures now , but they look like a fat hamburger without the bun and stiff as a board.

I'm confused.... You wanted 23x10.5x12 for the rear but bought 16x6.5x8 for 12" wheels or 16x6.5x8 for the front?

A "small" squirt of starting fluid, a match with air at the ready and they will blow right up.

We use to do big tractor tires that way on the farm. Fast and careful.
