hello, Combine wheels will fit. most are 26"x14" In addition the rims are usually in excellent shape having never been filled with fluid or had weights hanging on them. As far as slowing the ground speed up, the 14.9x28 original tires on my 45 have been replaced with 16.9x26 combine rim/tire combo and the combine setup is about 3" taller increasing my ground speed. In fact, on the open road the 45 will reach speeds of almost 22 MPH, compared with the 12 or 13 mph they were originally supposed to do in road gear.

Bottom line, the combine rims fit, and work very well and usually are cheaper, they also allow a wider tire which is almost always an advantage.

Also John deere backhoe rims/tires will work too.

Yes, other wheels will fit, and the ground speed depends on whether or not the tire width is bigger or smaller than the factory size. But if you want to keep a good tractor original and keep it as it was designed to be, or simply make it something that will go down the road under its own power...

I agree in keeping with the original looks and function in some ways. My factory wd45 wide front power steering is bone stock and staying that way. My junk frozen wd45 rescued from 2 feet of mud and lord knows how many years of rust and neglect is very very far from stock.

As for which is better, I like em both but ,I hate to upset anybody, My junkyard wd45 with combine wheels/tires, 12 volt electrical, gleaner E motor, electronic MSD ignition etc..etc... starts 1000% easier, runs cooler, pulls harder, and will outwork my stock, pretty, 100% correct wd45 any day (and especially snowblowing)

I was simply answering the guys question about if combine wheels will fit. As for how AC made em at the factory, They did a great job but 50 years of progress and technology can make them even better if you can bear to make the changes.

Recently I bought a WD with combine wheels. The bolt pattern is correct but the rims are only 26 inches in diameter- very common on older combines. Not correct, and also slows the ground speed. Smaller diameter tires give you less traction as well.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
