Just took it off the front of a running tractor. Yes, it was holding air. I can't read the date code. Do you think WWII or Korean Conflict?

Not a recommended by DOT for road use method-- but has been used for farm/offroad/parade use work-- find friendly Harley dealer with near bald center 5:10x16 tire from dresser and use it and tube as inner liner for the really bad looking but right outside size 16 inch tire needed for implement or old vehicle not used on interstate system. Some 15 inch rear tires for couple motorcycles available at times, skinny 4:25x16 for the small/midsize also around and taken off tire with good case, worn center tread is price of can beer- disposal cost for small tires about same as larger tire for tire dealers. Slime and foam padding in center of rim to take up some space works good enough for most utility work, extra slime helps in some scrap yard work if you don't want the $100.00 foam filling. 7:00x16 old Jeep tire can use the 5x16 or newer 5:10, 5:25x16 as inner liner- might need to sand off the nearer outside edge good tread, might just squeeze in with minimal problem. some ag tire dealer will have specific liner kits that will do same basic thing for extra money- might be about only option for bigger rear tractor tires but the smaller front wheels with 15, 16 inch tires can be quick , cheap fix if you have access to the used motorcycle tires. Ford N 19 inch fronts with nasty side wall cuts- many motorcycles used a skinny 19 inch front wheel/tire that tucks in easy enough. Brother 'borrowed' one of my salvage shelf motorcycle tires for quick repair of neighbors tractor tire and they were still being used about 3 years later, 3 or 4 repair jobs using my emergency use takeoffs, patched tubes that were in old shed. Either that or check Miller Tire for new tire - cost may be OK for you but most users of YTMAG seem to be 'thrifty' (cheap, tightwad, miser, poor, closed purse, squeeze a nickel till it screams :>).

I guess it depends on what your using it for. What ply is it? This one is still on a parts tractor. Just air it up if I need to move it.

Sure. Take it off the rim and put it in a safe place in your shop. You can save it for as long as you want.

Gees, I thought I had old tires. I'm still driving on tires on my jeep I bought in 1998.

Yes you can save that tire-I would save it until I had a brush pile to burn and put it under it with 5 gallon of waste oil and a Ohio blue tip.---Tee

16 inch? I've got a few of them kicking around. Brett 4207 got a couple for fronts from me. To bad you weren't closer. I'd hook you up.

Working on my MM RTI with Lull loader. Originally had 5 rib implement tires on the front, I have two from a parts tractor but they are getting rough too. Will probably buy new 5 rib once the tractor is all fixed up and put to work.

A little paintable calk, power sander and some black spray paint and it will look great until you put it back on your MM, I presume, and use it.
That wasn't much help was it!!!! Just a way to spend a frigid day in your heated shop this weekend. HeHe.

Looks like a typical non directional tire used from ww2 until the late 70ís, hard to pinpoint without code. Firestone still makes them.

If it was holding air I'd still be using it.

I have one worse than that on a grain drill. It's always flat when I go to use it but it will stay up a couple of days so I can plant and park it. Every year I think it won't air up but it always does, after sitting flat all year.

Is that 16inch -- it likely to be so stiff you will need to cut it off. If that is the same as the tiers I have they are flat most of the time and you cannot tell-- very thick and hard.

Be lucky to get a few years out of a new replacement ! They don't make them like they used to.
