An old Red-e walk behind tractor was donated to Richfield Historical Society. The tractor has been sitting non-running with a blown out tire for a long time. I offered my time to get this tractor back to life again. I am looking for a pair of used matching 5.50-16 ag tires.

Thank you Adam

Good Luck!  "That is one of most used front tractor tires and hardly found old ones in 3-rib any good. Bet REAL hard to find an Ag type used.  Think you should look at Deestones, even tho an import. I know they have ribs, not sure on ags that size. Miller tire?  Might have US namebrand there or a re-make at least, but cost more. Titan comes to mind.

I am hoping to find a used pair. They do not need to be perfect. Tractor isn't being restored but current tires are not salvageable.

Could you use Speedex tires? If so, were you looking for a donation or just inexpensive? Did you need the rims too, or just the rubber? I have a set on my s17 that I could spare, I plan on buying a new set when I get to the S18 restore. I can put the S18 tires on the 17.

Have you considered tubes? Or are the tires to far gone? Looks like Miller Tire has them, could get a set for less then $50 looks like.

The one tire is beyond saving. It had a 12" tear along the sidewall

I will keep these in mind if I don't find any 5.50 soon.
