I have a john deere 953 running gear with 16 x 5 wheels, i think are original, i'm thinking about putting 15 x 6 inch wheels on it,

the 16 inch wheels i have, have about 1 1/2 back set, does anyone know a good replacement in a 15'' wheel, and i was think about using a 9.5 L implement tire on the 6 inch wheel?

Be carefull about real heavy loads on that gear if the new wheels have a lot of offset too them. Acorrding to a JD service bulletin I have this can cause the axeles to bend.

Why not use the rims you have and use 16 inch tires from a truck say 245/70/16 load range D or E? A lot more common today than 15 inch tires used and will carry a lot more weight....Ron

215-85R-16 like was used on some Dodge Duaaly pickups, close to a 6:50X16 but more like a 7:50X16 and the 6:50 would have been orignal. The 235 or wider are actually too wide for your rims.

I have rebuilt a 963, 953,and 952. The original wheels for the 953 and 952 hubs are very rare and I couldn't find any when I wanted to replace the old ones on my 953. The inside of the original wheels are slightly convex while the "newer" wheels, the ones common today, are slightly concave with a "well" where the hub fits on the inside. The inside well on the newer wheels is slightly smaller than the 953 hub which results in the wheel not fitting tightly onto the hub. I resolved that by using newer wheels with a 1/4" steel wheel spacer on each hub. I had the wheel spacers custom made by a local CNC operation but found out later that those spacers are commercially available through the company that I buy my agricultural tires from. The cost is about the same - around $25 each. The spacer brought the wheel 1/4" away from the hub which allowed me to use the newer wheel and have it fit tightly to the hub. You can use the newer wheels without a wheel spacer but to fit tightly to the hub you will need to turn the wheels around as the outerside of the newer wheels have a slightly convex shape to them. That puts the valve stem on the inside of the wheel. A little cumbersome if you need to add air. If you go with new wheels - $60 or so each - you can have any size 6-bolt wheel you want.

What style of 953, the earlier with the JD hubs or the later style with the rounded hubs?

The rim part # currently on your wagon , is JD 639E and are 16 by 5.5. An orig option is part # JD 1085 D being 15 by 5-K what the K means i have no idea. The 9.5Ls will look a little off as they will have the beads sucked in to much i would think anyway as for my likes. - 10.5s look really cool if you have the right size rims i think.
