Just curious as to what ply count you guys shoot for in stock antique class pulling tire. I got a free set of Akuret 16.9 8 ply tires. They seem a bit stiff and I didn't loose as much weight as I had expected when I went from cast to steel wheels. Wondering if I should trade them for something different.

I have a set of 18.4 38 akuret tires that I tried to farm with. they were so thin on carcass that everything just stuck right threw. I know they say 8 ply but I would say 6 ply or less. I finally took them off with 98% tread. just my opinion

We have some akuret tires that are 16.9x38 on a 7710 Ford. Those things were a bear to mount. The sidewalls on them were stiff as a 4x4. Really surprised when you said you had such poor luck out of the 18.4s.

More plys usually mean they will be heavier..

In "Antique class", most more serious pullers would prefer 4 ply and put the difference in weight up on the front.

Have Fun..!
