Does anybody have a MF14 or MF16 with the 23-8.50x12 rear tires?

 

Reason I ask is in my owners manual and on the AGCO parts book site there is reference to the rear tires being

23-8.50x12 with 7" wide rim or

23-10.50x12 with 8.5" wide rim.

 

I have only seen or heard of the 10.50 wide tires being used from the factory. ???

Interesting, Doug.

I've never seen any with 8.50 tires.

And I've been to almost every page on the WWW.

My Mf16 has the 23x10.50 on it....and even they look small, I think the 8.50 would look funny. Some 26x12x12's sure would fill up the wheel well better...

Doug, The MF14/16 Operator/Maintenance manual refers to both sizes. Best I can do for you.

Doug, Check out page 4 of the Parts manual for the 14/16 here in our manual section. It shows the part numbers for both sizes.

The 8.50s were AGs

The 8.50s were AGs

and BTW if you ordered AGs they came with the 12x7 rim as well, instead of the 8.5 inch rims

Not sure its in the parts book, but somewhere I have the corresponding part numbers that show the optional AG tires/wheels. Simplicity/Allis was big on this as well, so much so that they even changed model numbers when the tractor was ordered with AGs. Remember MOST GTs were sold as the tractor only, much of the equipment was an option, like the mower deck, lol, head lights, electric/hydraulic lift, cigarette lighter, hour meter, and such

The parts book shows tire chains for both size tires as well. ???

Also says one size chain can be used for both tire sizes. ???

Tire chains on AGs ???

I use chains on AGS on GTs and big tractors, very common in the farming community, still looking for the parts book with Massey Accesories that shows the AG option, Selling something you might not need isn't uncommon for any vehicle is it?

I have serveral books  that aren't available in .pdf, or haven't been converted to .pdf, that show AG options on MF14/16, MF10/12, and maybe even MF7/8, I think I got them from the guy at the factory in Hesston, Kansas when I got the serial number list five or six years ago, hers the page for the AG option in the acceory manual for the 1450/1650, the others are the same

If you are blowing or plowing snow then having a narrower option for rear tires makes sense to me. I'm sure for some AG type jobs  reducing the width a few inches may be a good thing as well.
