I picked up a pair of nice vintage looking B.F. Goodrich turf tires at a sale this past spring.  They were covered in pigeon poop but cleaned up nice and I'm thinking they might be good for someone's restoration.

I'm curious if anyone knows if BFGs were used as original equipment by any GT brands??  If so, which ones and approx. when?

Jim,

 

I know John Deere used them on a couple of their tractors (110,112,120, & 140) in the late sixties and early seventies. I have found numerous John Deere's with B.F. Goodrich, Firestone, and Goodyear tires. Still find some good quality Firestones and Goodyear's from time to time, but not too many of the B.F. Goodrich tires. What size are the tires? Will you or can you post some pictures of them?

I think Bolens used them on some of their tractors.

 

I bought a NOS Dual Wheel Kit for the Bolens Large Frames and it has Goodyear tires.

Got busy and forgot all about this but I finally downloaded all the pictures off my cell phone to my computer and I found these tire pics.

They're BFG Silvertowns

I know this is an old thread but if anyone is interested I have a pair of BF Goodrich Silvertown 23x10.50-12 tires off an older Cub Cadet.  They have dry/weather checking but great tread and they hold air.
