What is the correct rear tire size for a wd, it has 13.6 x 28 on it now and I have been told they are getting hard to find. What other size could I go with. The tires that are on there now have the tubes poking out the side wall's. Thanks in advance. Matt

Around here, many farmers put 16.9x28 tires on their WD-45's....

The WD series were "Wild and Wolly" when they worked, and NO-ONE worried about breaking anything when you were operating them... They Had to have extra weight because they had So Much Power...!! That old WD won't "Hurt Itself"..!!! "Pull the Halter Off it", and let it work..!!

I have 14.9/28's on my WD with no problems.
If you are doing lite work get 6ply tires.
If you are doing any heavy work or doing any kind of mowing get 8ply tires.
They are more expensive but worth it.

A WD Has 11 Inch Wide Rims. A WD 45 Has 12 Inch Wide Rims. Standard Size Tire For WD Is ( 11x28 Old Size ) ( 12.2x28 New Size ) For WD 45 (12x28 Old Size ) ( 13.6x28 New Size )

13.6-28's are real easy to find & only about $150 each. If it is a straight WD,with 12 in rims, 13.6-28's are correct. WD-45's (at least later ones) had 13 in rims and took 14.9-28's. They are more expensive, but available for about $200 each - more or less if you shop around. WD-45's had stronger axles & final drives & could handle the larger tires & more weights. I've heard of 14.9's on old WD's & axle breakage.

I know that 13.6x38's are more sxpensive than 15.5x38... I assume they are for the 28", too..

If you intend to Use it, I would definitely put the 14.9x28" tires on it..

Those 28" wheels are not all that big, and the WD has plenty power to spin them...

Factory standard size was 11-28, oversize was 12-28. Your current 13.6-28 was equivalent to the factory 12-28. WD45 had the wider tires as standard, and 13-28 (current 14.9-28) was oversize.

The proper New size is 14.9x28"...that would be the same size over-all as the old 13x28" The 13.6x28" are actually a little too small...

Today's Featured Article - Search For Spares - by Anthony West (UK). Following on from the aquisition of the old Fordson F, I was very much in need of spares. As a novice though I didn't appreciate the fact that there were so many Fordson tractors made, that all the other makes seem rare by comparison. As far as I was aware a fordson was a fordson and it was only through trial an ... [Read Article]
