It has the larger 22" size.  If I recall correctly, the new tires that were put on were 7.50x22.  It's not an easy tire size to find, from what I understand.  I'd have to double check the tire size to be sure, but I am sure the rim size is 22"  I understand that these also came in a 16".

Thanks for your kind words.  I'm still working on the website, always adding to it.  This summer I hope to visit a lot of collectors, particularly those collectors who have amazing collections but no internet access.  I'm hoping to add pictures of their collections and their stories to my website as well, just like I'm doing with Paul's Gibson collection.  I have a few people in mind.  I'll have a lot more time in the summer to do that.  It'll be interesting and fun to put together.

I know a few in the New England area. I am sure others have a lot more suggestions than me.  It is a great idea to document the different collections.   There is a man in Sunderland MA who has a wonderful Beaver Tractor collection.  Great man with little internet  access or ability.
