Hi.... newbie here,
I bought a 1970 Commercial 12 about a year ago and with the help of buddies, have just gotten around to getting it running. It had dual turf tires, 2 of which won't hold air. I was gonna re-tube the tires and realized that all four are pretty well weather checked.
In as much as I'm planning to use it mostly for brush hogging AND pulling old tires and junk out of the weeds, we decided that instead of doing the duals, I might be better off going to one pair of AG/ bar lug tires. The problem I'm having is that, what ARE on it now are 18 x 6.50 - 8.
I can't seem to find any such animal in a bar lug tractor tread and was kinda hoping that someone here could suggest some tire brand, supplier and/ or maybe even a substitute 8" wheel tire that would fit on a 6.5" wide rim and NOT be smaller in height than 18".
Maybe a 20" may work., it would only raise the rear of the deck an inch higher, right? Hmmm that could be acceptable, I guess. I haven't a clue 'cuz this is all new to me.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx, flgudmusic aka Pat
