I bought this 37 WC a few years back partially because of these front tires. They are in surprisingly good shape.
Anyone have any idea how old they are?
They are 5 X 17 Firstones. I looked for some kind of date code but nothing makes sense.

I would be intrested in the tractor if you just wanted to keep the tires and wheels.

I will try to post page from 1948 Firestone Book. As I said before I can account for this tire in the line as early as 1944 and as late as 1950.

In response to another post, Chevy trucks were 16 inch - mostly 6.00-16 in the early 50's and by 1960 they were 6.70-15 - I would guess they changed around 1957, but they were never 14 inch on full size pickups.

Yes, the pickups never had 14 inch. A friend of mine bought a new chev in 1960 and it came with 15 inch from factory. But our neighbor bought one the same year and it had 16 inch-both half tons.

Chevy cars and 1/2 ton pickups came with 17 inch tires until about 1937 or 38. My 36 chev car had 5.50 x 17 wheels on it. I think in 1938 they went to 16 inch and 1949 went to 14 inch.

The design shows up in some Firestone literature I have in 1944 and 1950. They show as "Passenger " tires in a 5.25/5.50-17 size. Next comparable literature I have is 1957 but it does not show them - not to say the literature has all tires.

Don't know how old they are but if you want to sell those wheels let me know.
