I found these tires and wheels at a swap meet last year.  Not sure what I'm going to use them on but they were too kewell to pass on.  Thinking maybe a high-crop garden tractor....  ?????

Maybe my 1936 Handiman Z that is missing the factory wheels.  ???

Size is 400 X 24.  They look to be from the 1940's and are new with no wear or weather checking. 

The guy said he had another pair at home.  I wish he'd have brought them.  With both pair they would be perfect for "factory duals" on a garden tractor size John Deere "G".   If you've ever seen an unstyled Deere G with factory duals you know what I'm talkin about.

I could think of several good uses for those. They remind me mostly of tires from one of the early Standard or Walsh tractors, but I think they were 22" ones. What is the measurement inside the rim?

They look like implement tires to me maybe from a manure spreader or some type of haying equipment. Whatever they are I like them.

They have a pretty deep drop center.  It measures 22 inches in the center.

They say "implement traction" on the sidewall.

They might be from a old side delivery hay rake or a old manure spreader, their a bit too thin for anything else.
