77 & 88 Wheatland tractors had 26" rear wheels and tires as did the early Super 77 & Super 88 tractors. Competive tractors like MM and Case always used 38" rear wheels and tires. The footprint was much larger on the 38" tires, thus they pulled better in the field. The late Super 77 and Super 88 tractors were built with the row crop rear axle housing, and axles with row crop wheels and 38" tires. The early tractors had the cast front axle with straddle mount for the housing that held the carrier for the flanged axle. The late front axle was made from a solid steel bar that had a slight arch with welded drop housings for the short spindles. The late tractor axle was made that way to level the tractor with the 38" wheels and tires.
John told you that you have a 57 production tractor ( a late one ), thus it is more than likely the way it was built at the factory. I wouldn"t say that it is rare, however this configuration is not common. If you are thinking of restoring it should be well worth the effort. I have a friend that has the early version Super 88.
