I'm going to be needing tires for a tractor that I just bought. It's a Large Frame Bolens and takes 26-12-12 tires.
I have a pair of 26-12-12 CST Ancla tires on my 1886 and am planning on putting Anclas on this tractor as well.
I have found a site with some VERY good pricing on Ancla tires. I can get the 26-12-12 for $96.99 ea.
However they also have the 12-11-12 tires at $72.99 ea. We are talking a savings of close to $50.00 for a pair.
The load rating for the 11-12 tires is 480# while the 12-12s are rated at 520#
I'm leaning heavily to going with the 11-12s. I don't see me having all that much weight on the tractor, and I doubt that I would lose that much traction with a 1" width difference.
Also the $$ savings can be put toward a pair of front tires which it needs as well.
What say you?
