I have found a cheap set of tires for my 1655 I just picked up they are brand new for 30 bucks for both.  The size is 20x10x8 just wondering if they will be to wide or if they will fit?  Any help would be appreciated.

My guess would be not high enough. I'm thinking more like 23-26 high needed.

I guess I should have mentioned they were for the front.

Stock size is 18x8.50-8. My 1655 currently wears 18x9.50-8's.with no problem To maintain the existing geometry for the loader and tiller, I would not use a 20" tire.

 

Two ply 20x10-8 tires are what I have on the rear of  my LT. How much load do you expect to have on the front end of your tractor?
