Tires for running gear

I have an electric wagon 5025 6 ton gear that has 5 bolt hubs and 72" wheelbase. The rim is a 15x5. What current tire size (LT or farm duty) can I use to get to full capacity? Having no luck finding a 7.00x15 tire with 3000 lb capacity. The gear was also spec'ed with 15x6 rims. Do I have to go to that rim size to get to full cap. The tires that are on now are around 1600lb cap. Want to haul 4-6 1200lb rounders on the wagon and like my tires to have a bit of extra cap.

The best tires for that would be some used trailer tires size 205, 215, or 225/75R15, because they are all 6 ply and will hold anything you can put on that wagon. I always save any 15 inch tire that is 6 ply for wagon use. Some old 1/2 Ton pickups used 7.00-15 bias tires which are 6 ply if you can find them. Try to find trailer tires, they even used 7.00-15 bias or the metric sizes I listed above.

Not trying to hijack this, but any idea what size tire would be comparable to 6.0 x 16? I've got some old running gear, it has two implement tires and some old car tires on it. Only one tire holds air, need to get some tires for it. Not interested in new 6.0 x 16 tires, too expensive. Just looking for a modern day metric equivalent size.

There is none to compair, the closest you can come is a 215-75-16 and it is close to a 7:50 x 16" or a throwaway spare that is about equal to a 5:50 x 16"

Never hurts to look at the Wheels and decide if THEY are made to take the stress of a heavier load.. Used to see P/U Rims Spit at the Bead at 70 lbs/8-ply..never knew when they would...

Probably a seldom thing, just a thought..

FWIW.. Ron.

4-6 bales? any old car tires will be fine. Like Hayrack stated, the weight ratings are for highway speed.

Have you tried Gensco. They sell used airplane tires. They are anywhere from 12-20 plys. their website is noflats.com

Shoot, I'd just slap a set of almost wore out 205-225 75 R15's, from a pickup truck that needs new tires. I have to keep air in over 115 tires, on the farm. I'm always looking for 14's and 15's, on craig's list.

If your reading the load rating on the tire I am assuming they are Light truck tires. Remember that the load rating is set for highway speed. Tires generate destructive heat at faster speeds.if your only going at tractor speeds you can haul a lot more on the same tires...I have always had good luck with any decent 6 ply tire for a load ike that.... and I prefer a radial or a flotation implement.. something where the tire will flex quite a bit with the load. Not so rough on the gear that way! Hope that helps!
