Go WITH the 14.9x28" no matter what they say....they are (were) the standard Over-Size and with Plenty of Reasons...(They needed the increased Traction)...

Dad's came with GOOD YEARS.

Anything smaller is a WASTE of money...

My dad bought a new 1950 WD. It had B F Goodrich ( the old 12-28s, now called 13.6-28); they had the knuckle tread bars. The bars at the center turned back a few inches, bars shaped like a big check mark your teacher would make.

Maybe ME Miller. Going to be hard to find an American made tire period let alone a reproduction of a 60 year old tread style.

Any rear tire installed on the tractor from the Factory, probably had the old traditional 45 degree lug design. Most Firestone, Goodyear or B.F. Goodrich tires of today will not, especially the Firestones, which are now 23 degree. There are some off-brands out there now that have somewhat of a 45 degree bar design, but may say "China" or "India" on the sidewalls.

I have a couple pair of the American Farmer that d beatty mentions. They're probably close to what you want. I bought them because they're made here. But I don't like them.

Bob I have a set on my Farmall B and like them. They are 45 degree bar and a deep bar and pulls great. I use tractor for loading dirt and snow plowing and pulling loads of fire wood out of woods. What don't you like about tires if I may ask?

Both pair started showing surface cracks right away. I can't adjust the air pressure and get them right. They are either too hard, or if I let them off so the whole tread touches the ground, the sidewalls buckle. The bigger tractor I had them on rode so hard I took them back off and sold them at a loss.

Sounds like tires may have set for some time in a warehouse before they put them on your tractor. Mine have been on for close to 4 years and show no sign of cracking but my tractor sets inside when not in use.
