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.
