Interesting that the speeds are different, too.  Does difference between the 8.5 to 10.5 tires make that much difference, or is there actually something different about the gear sets in the transaxle?  Seems like a big difference just to be tires.

Ive never actually measured the height of them but I have 8.5", 10" and 10.5" all on factory Ford rims... they all look about the same height... but they are also all OS '72-'76 tractors... I would think there must be a differance in the rear diff unless the tires are considerably larger on the CS models.


I might have to look for a CS model just for comparison purposes... seems to be alot more differances than what I originally thought... but I still think the OS are better lookin... lol
