I doubt my tractor will do 225 MPH...

Typical 5.5X16" tri ribs are about 29-30" tall.

But I did buy a pair of new 8X15 rims this fall so heightwise these would be close.

I've heard of people running aircraft tires on their tractors before. I'm wondering how tough they'd be to mount and dismount.

I assume they are tubeless?

Are they worth $50 a piece?

They'd last about forever wouldn't they?
As long as you didn't over load or over speed them :)

I will be going within 15 miles from this place this weekend.

Thinking about buying a pair.

Edit: Oops. I meant this for the Ford Board. Oh Well...

I put aircraft tires on the front of my loader tractor that I used to clean up some acreage in south TX. lots of thorns and rocks.

I pd $100 each mounted on rims with some kind of pink no flat liquid in them. Never had an issue with them or needed to have them broken down. That was about 4 years ago.

Previously the factory tri ribs had to be repaired several time a year on good ground.

I worked for a farmer once who used aircraft tires wherever he could. He bought them with the bead trimmed down so they could be mounted on regular rims.

I have a single tire on the front of an old JD 630. It's an odd size that I haven't been able to find - I think a 12" rim diameter, and 11 or 12 inch width. The outer diameter is pretty big - it makes the tractor sit up a little in the front - gives it a cartoonish look. It originally came off of a 4020 from down south, and appears to be a John Deere item. The wheel unbolts in the center and comes in half for mounting the tire. Tire is ugly - tread is peeled off, cord showing, BIG cracks, but I still feed with it. Toughest tire I've ever seen. Every time I pick up a bale with the loader, I wonder if it'll pop. I guess I'll put the rollomatic back on it when it does. Local tire guys have struck out on finding that size.

Try Tucker tire of Miller. I found the two I needed. They were popular here of the muddy fields.

I bought two front tires from Gensco for my MF35. Mounted on their own wheels... Been on about a year. So far, so good. The 'original' wheels were rusting through and tires keep going flat (even with tubes). I would have about 4 flats/year and both had slow leaks. No leaks or flats with the aircraft tires. Originally, they were 20ply, but since they are used/take-offs, I think they're only about 6 ply now. Paid about $100 for two (including new rims)....

I got a pair of 34x10.74x16 fronts for my 4020 last year from Gensco. 18 ply, about $200 each mounted on new rims. They are great.

Ultradog MN,I have run Airplane tires on my 966 IH since 1994! My first set (went 10 yrs) I had put on my stock wide IH rims had 2 flats that required new tubes both times. The OEM rim was a little light and wanted to bend at times when the bead was spun off on one side,... to get the new tube put in.
My current set, are a set of HD aftermarket rims that I put a better set of Airplanes tires on them.
I use a large tire company to fix my flats when I have on them. set I had a tube go bad s ruff spot on the inside of the tire. My point is Check your "Back Space" on your OEM rim with tire at working pressure. if you are currently running a narrow saw-blade tire and not a wide Floatation implement so a wider tire will you will need to adjust the 'Back Space' so a wider tire will not rub the spinnel and cause premature tire failure
The guys at Gensco in Houston specialize in tire/wheel combos already made up and ready to go. Cheap-enough to be one time use items. Get-it and forget-it, when they crap out go buy 2 new ones.
I prefer dry tires as apposed to loaded up with some sort of tire slime stuff. Hope this helps.
Later,
John A.

I have 2 pretty much like those pictured on the front of my loader tractor. Hard to mount!!!! Battled with one leaking at bead until I put a tube in it. Think it was rusty rim not tire. They are VERY tough. Got some retread aircraft tires for manure spreader. They weren"t worth a flip, tread peeled off 1st year on both. They did stay aired up awhile after the tread was gone.

I'd recommend buying 'em already mounted; bought a pair to go on my mowing tractor way back when. Would just put my tri (or 4) ribs back on when I was done mowing. Also bought 4 smaller (un-mounted) ones for winged-mower; they were a b*tch to mount, but we got it done. NEVER had a flat on any of 'em.

Had a hay wagon with 4 22 ply aircraft tires on it. They never had air in them while I was around. When they finally got so worn down you could count all 22 plies they got flat spots and the wagon would bounce when empty. Had to cut them off the rims with a saw.
