Apparently they aren't making the ITP 589s for anything except 14 inch rims, at least for now. Maxxis has some good tires, I like these if I cant get ITP589s

You might consider the CST/Maxxis ANCLA tires.
I have them on 2, and soon to be 3, of my tractors. Awesome grip with them.
My 1886 FEL has 26-12-12s, the HDT1000 has 26-11-12s, and the forklift is going to get 27-11-12s.
It's almost impossible to tell the difference in the 11" and 12" wide ones. I got the 26-11-12 set here mostly because of price.
At $75.00/Tire it's a great deal.
Here's what they look like mounted. 26-12-12 on the left, 26-11-12 in the right.
I wasn't a immediate fan of that tire, just because of the tread design, (just me), but it is growing me. The real problem I have with this tire and other tires like it, is that it sports a "6 ply rating", but those aren't really 6 ply tires and therefore don't last as long a true 6 ply tires, of course they are half the price, but my daddy always said, "Always, buy the VERY best, and you will never be disappointed, try and go cheap and it will cost more in the end". The tires they put on these old GTs lasted 30 years, if I am going to spend money it will be for 30 year tires, if I can get them. I know olcowhand can verify the durability of the ITP589s with real on the job hard use, it's why bought them. I'll probably buy the Interco Interforce 27x7.5x12s next go around as my 25x8-12 ITP589s out dig and pull my 25x10-12 ITP589s, and the Intercos are true 6 ply tires and have a true exact farm tractor tread. I like the look of the wide AGs, but they don't give as good of traction in the field, otherwise farm tractors would have wide tires. As far as I've seen most all brands of farming tractors for working the fields tend to have a narrow height to width ratio
