I'm currently searching for used tires for my '41 M. It has 13.6x38's on it and one has dry rotted and died. I've got a fella who has a matched pair of 15.5x38's at $20.00/ea. Will these fit my rims? Thanks!

You need to check the size of your rims. They are probably 11 X 38. That is what most Ms have. Since others post that the 15.5 is the same as the old 13x38. If you have at least 11 inch rims, I think the tires will work. If you have 10 inch rims, which is entirely possible on a 41 model, I think tires that big might not work too well.

I have 15.5s on my Super H...they will fit the rims. They are a little big , but they don't look too funny. For $20 each, let me know where they are and I'll buy them as spares if you don't want them. Also yell at me if you see any H/M cultivators anywhere around Huntsville...BB

WOW, That's some BIG rubber on a Super H.... Does It Float? hehehe.... A Buddy that just restored His Dad's '51 DC Case got NEW Firestone All Traction Field & Road tires, 12.4 X 38 4 ply's for about $300 installed. I didn't realize Firestone still made that size.

The 12.4 X 38's were about $300 EACH, $600 for the pair. My Super H goes "Up-Hill" too with 6.00 X 16's on the frt. Doesn't look so bad with the loader. And the tires were only $5.00 each, They were "Run-Off's" from Farmall, Used as a spare inside the plant. Included the 8-bolt wheel too. It's amazing what You can make work, if the $$ is right.

Yup...I wish I could take credit for it, but the previous owner did it. What is really amazing are the fronts...7.50 X 15s...2 sizes over stock. It looks like it is permanently climbing a hill.

He got em cheap no doubt. I can't wear them out fast enough so I can get some new ones....BB

Hi 'Bama Red, Your '41 M has pretty narrow rims for 15.5-38 tires. The originals were 12-38's and a different profile tire, 15.5's came out about 1955 and were a new size then. 13-38's were the standard size for Super Ms and fit okay on the 12 inch rims late M's and Super's had. I never saw 15.5's on anything earlier than a 400 and they were mounted on a sort of special 14 inch rim. You can probably mount 15.5's on your M without too much trouble but they'll look kinda funny on your rims, if there're still the stock rims the tractor came with. Hope this makes sense and helps you.

The 15.5 used to be the old 13 X 38. Your 13.6 X 38 used to be the 12 X 38. So in effect your stepping up one inch. For $20 If they're decent tires I'd go for it. Tractor will run a bit faster in each gear, maybe 3-4 percent. I'd use a clip-on air chuck when you air them up the first time. The narrow rim puts more stress on the steel wires inside the rubber tire bead. They could break & tire blow off the rim. You don't want to be around then.

Bama Red,
The 15.5's will fit ok. If you have fenders, you might have to move the wheels out a bit to keep them from rubbing.
Whereabouts in Al. are you. I grew up around B'ham and moved to Tx. back in '68.

Phil
