Some time back I posted about fixing a set of FF 20 wheels. Right after that, I attempted to mount the tires on them. Well, today I finally got them mounted. It just took some warm weather to get those things to go on the wheels. Those sidewalls are stout. Anyways, they are mounted and basking in the SUN with 20 lbs. air in them. It took 30 PSI to get the first one fully seated. 40 PSI to get the second one. And that was with grease on both the wheel and tire bead. I think they will hold air just fine and if so, time to LOAD them.

As soon as I figure which bank to rob, I'll use Windshield Washer fluid. I just re-checked the air in them and they are holding steady. These 26-12X12's loaded and 75 lb. wheel weights should help me get a bite with the FF20.

Just for everyone's info, these tires are very solid on the side walls. I had to refigure all I knew about mounting tires to get them on there. They do not bend! The ones on my FF20 plow tractor have 6 PSI air in them and 75 lb. weights and do not squat.

What ply are they? And when you figure what bank , get some for me. That size of tire would hold about 10 gallons each I think, at 8 to 9 lb per gallon , with the 75 lb weights you could be up around the 150 lb or more per tire. Hang about 200lb off the back end. Should be able to move what you want. What are you going to use it for ? Noel

I put washer fluid in mine on the ford lgt 100. Tires are 6 x 12 , they held about 4 gallons. Don't go any less than 6 psi, any lower and the rims may spin in the tire if you get a real good bite on the tire and the power from the tractor spins the wheels. Are you useing tubes.? Noel.

They are 4 ply. They are on FF wheels. Now I can have AG's on both tractors or swap back to turfs easily (I pair).

 

I put washer fluid in mine on the ford lgt 100. Tires are 6 x 12 , they held about 4 gallons. Don't go any less than 6 psi, any lower and the rims may spin in the tire if you get a real good bite on the tire and the power from the tractor spins the wheels. Are you useing tubes.? Noel.

If they are still holding air this morning, no tubes. As hard as these were to seat the beads, I don't think they will break loose real easily.

The other pair I have been using have tubes in them. I have been running about 6 PSI with the 75 lb. weights and do not see any flex in the side walls.

They were given to me 18 months back by a local club member. They have been used a while, think they came of a MF 1855. I just had to get the original FF wheels repaired so I could mount them. Tried to mount them this winter, but they were just to stiff to go on the wheel. Warmed up enough yesterday for them to go on.

I guess your welds got a good test when those popped on the bead at 40PSI. That would make me nervous. I have 6ply Carlisle Industrial R4 type tires on my 2320 compact. In order to get any squat I have to lower them to below 10psi. That's with about 1000lbs on the back and the loader mounted. A little bit of flex seems to yield better traction IME. Those should work well on the FF. What you need for that tractor is a loader. I don't remember if you have one or not.

Yeah, those welds got a good test. I was a bit nervous too.

I don't have a loader as yet. Wish I did. But then, you would have to pry me off it! :bigrofl:
