Hello everyone,
I've never been one to leave any of my toys stock. I just recently picked up my 63 "O". I have pics posted in numerous threads, but for those that haven't seen it, it has fenders, and 6-12 ag tires on back, and what I think is stock sized front tires. I'm thinking of changing it up a bit due to the condition of the rear ags, and the front tires are 2 different tread patterns. i'd like to install wider rear wheels and tires but I'm unsure what would fit. Also looking for ideas for front tires. So post up some pics of your "O" tire combo's!! Thanks

I think 3-rib tires would look good up front on those narrow wheels.

Well, it's not an O, but here's a pic of Ryan on his tractor the day we put his new tires on.

Where did you find the front tri-ribs? and how much do they usually run per tire? I like the looks of those!

There are a lot of Deestone Dealers, many sell on EBay, some are probably close to you. I think these were around $50 for the pair, plus tubes.

PS, don't forget the tubes (and DON'T get them from TSC, they are undersized enough to be frustrating.

:ditto: to that. I have two different sets of their tires. A set of 3.50-8's on my 100 and a set of 4.00-8's on my 107. The next set I buy of tri ribs will be from them again as well. They are branded as Deestone on the tires.

The ebay seller you want to deal with is "Kmorrow" (Morrow Tire). His 4.00-8 tri rib tires are 54 dollars a pair shipped with tubes if I recall. I know that those ARE what Alan bought.

The tri-ribs deestones seem to be fine, its the rear ags that are undersize from all that I have heard about them. If you want 23x8.50x12's you need to get the 10.50's.

Ryans 10.5 actually measure 9.75. Which is perfect for his 10" Brinly.

cool, thanks guys, Im going to start on the fronts because for some wierd reason, both front tires are new, but different tread patterns. Im actually surprised at how cheap they are for 2. I thought I would easily spend $50 ea. So The upgrade is affordable and may happen sooner than latter. Ther rear tires are fine still. Actually my father says I should leabe the stock skinny rears on there. But I just like the mean tractor look, better than the stock look!
