Tire question

Just bought a A-C D14 with one good rear tire, and one well worn. The D14 takes 12X26 rears, which I understand is somehow the same as 13.6X16 in modern terms.

Ok, so far so good - There is a 13X26 tire for sale used on craigslist for $75 here. Seems like a perfect deal if it would fit, but I'm unsure about how big a deal the missing 0.6 width is - I understand that tractor rears are somewhat flexible on width but I'd hate to waste money in an attempt to save money! Any advice?

Personally I thought D14ís used 28 inch rubber but I guess they could have 26 inch rubber.

The (12) 12x26 would be a very old number the modern number would be 13.6

There is a 13 but again its an old number designation the modern new number would be 14.9.

So look for a 13.6x26.

Its worth looking at the 13x26 for $75 but only if itís a misprint and its really a 13.6x26 other wise it wont work.

Nope, not a misprint - in the photo you can clearly see the numbering.

I guess I'll just keep looking; hopefully the older one lasts until I can find something!

It might be worth looking at, some of the old tires get extremely hard and are actually pretty good.

I think you missed your typo but hay that is ok. As for the 13X26 that would be one size bigger then the 12X26 so yes you could get by with it ok or the person who has it for sale didn't post the ad correctly since that would also make it a very old tire like the tire you already have

If the tire up for sale is relatively new it is likely a 13.6 and the seller left off the last bit in the description. If it is old it is possibly a 13-26, which under the new system is a 14.9-26, I believe. Some tires will have both sizes printed on them, usually the new size in bigger letters. When you see the tire if it says 13-26 it will be bigger than your tire, but if it says 13.6-26 it will be the same, more or less. Different brands of tire also are sometimes slightly different in actual size, much like shoe sizes and shoe companies. Also a 6 ply tire can at least look bigger than a 4 ply of the same size, in my experience.

My name is Sean Brinston and I was 15 almost 16 at the time of this.My neighbour directly across the road who I had helped with hay all the time had this tractor sitiing at his house for what I thought was 6 years.
