Do you have both sets or are you looking? Depends on the weight class, how much moveable weight you need, brand of tires, how much bar is left, and how hard it is. I personally think 18.4x38 is too much tire in a 5500# class at 3-5mph. 7500# & up I would go 18.4x38.

So you would let me pull against your 16.9X38's with 30.5X32's. There might be a reason the size limit is 18.4X38. Vic

I just got the tractor and it had 14.9.38's on it i personally like the 16.9x38 like a sat firestone or perhaps a bfg. I think in 5500 and 6000 as long as you stay in 4-5 mph classes i think they work good.

Ah come on. We do have a set of new cut Firestorms 16.9 X 38. If we can make them hold air! No luck so far. Can't seem to get the tire all the way off the rim without tearing it. We do have soap like they take semi tires off with. Can't believe I could go littler and pull better. But they are a little taller and should make me go faster! Vic

that is exactly correct. i have had 15.5x38s to 18.4x38s on my wd45 and it pulled the same with both so i run the 15.5.

I'd take my 16.9's over a set of 18.4's any day. They are easier on the gear ratio for 4mph classes, give a good weight to footprint ratio & they easier on the movable weight. We have a set of LSB firestones & a set of powergrip 30's BFGs that we hand cut years ago & they have been very consistent.
