You will need 13 or 14 inch rims with your up date. I hate to see side walls sucked in. In my opinion , one inch less in either case would be max. The ole tractor will look a little out of place either way. Be like putting Joe Louise's boxing gloves on a house mouse.

A 13.6x38 tire will fit on an 11 inch wide rim just fine, and no, the sidewalls will not be sucked in. My 1940 Farmall M had 14.9 tires when I first bought it. Those tires were basically junk, so I replaced them with brand new, Akuret 13.6 tires. There is NO difference in how the tractor sets. Front tires are 6.00x16 and the tractor sat level before AND after the rear tire swap.

Do you mean 12" or 13" wheels? !5.5 tires are for 14" rims.
You are right tho the tires should fit the wheels. He should measure his rim and use the tire size for that wheel.
