Default Tractor Tire FAQ

All of these tire images are to scale.



LEFT TO RIGHT:

31x15.5-15 - .75" tread - $175 - Goodyear Terra Tire, mounted on wide rim
31x15.5-15 - .75" tread - $202 - Goodyear Traction Tire, mounted on narrower than factory specified rim
35x14.5-15 - ??? - SS TSL, 1/8" tread remaining, just for scale...
11.2-16 (35.5x11.8-16) - 1 3/8" tread - $148 - Goodyear DynaTorque II (small version of far right)
18.4-16.1 (44.8x20.1-16.1) - 1.6" tread - $499 - Firestone Traction Field and Roadmeasures 42" with no air, bias ply... Same as the good year Traction Sure Grip
18.4-16.1 (45x18-16.1) - 1.6" tread - $230 FOB - "American Farmer Apple", air pressure has a lot to do with final height on this one, radial ply
18.4-16.1 (44.7x18.6-16.1) - 1.6" tread - $399 - Titan Hi-Traction Lug R-1
19.5-24 (50.6x18-24) - 1.2" tread - $350 - Chinese R-4 Bias Industrial Tractor Tire
19.5x24 (50.6x19-24) - 1.2" tread - $350 - Chinese R-4 Radial Industrial Tractor Tire
16.9x24 (52.7x17-24) - 1.6" tread - $304 - Goodyear DynaTorque II

Diversified tire in wasilla has them at $399.

Its funny how all the 18.4s have the "same" width. Tire manufactures measure the width as overall width, so they include sidewall bulge. The titan is pretty much a straight sided flinstone looking tire with tread. It looks huge in person. Very pretty.

Man, you cant beat the price of the 18.4-16.1 (45x18-16.1) - 1.6" tread - $230 FOB - "American Farmer Apple"!

I'd love to try the 18.4-16.1 (44.7x18.6-16.1) - 1.6" tread - $399 - Titan Hi-Traction Lug R-1, but not for that price!

All the tire prices except the Apple are delivered to Anchorage or Wasilla. The Apple is 230 FOB in seattle. So it will cost to ship each one...

There is a 6 ply apple at 230 and an 8 ply at 299 or so. Frank's Tire Factory in Yakama is who makes them...ask for Frank.

Hmm...the 18.4-16.1 (44.7x18.6-16.1) - 1.6" tread - $399 - Titan Hi-Traction Lug R-1 has gone up in price...

When they first started getting them I checked and they were wanting $354 for them.

It has. When I bought mine they were $350 and out of stock, so I went with the bigger ones in stock.

Don't overlook an inexpensive option. Mil Surplus Michelin XLs in 1600R20. Aprox $50 each from one of the lower 48 surplus dealers. In your hand after shipping at or under $200 apiece. Less if you buy a bunch of course. 53x17 true size new, about 52-52.5x17 in the sightly used condition that the military replaces them at. Big chunky tread pattern that beats a swamper in the mud but is friendlier on harder srtuff than the ag patterns (lots of room for custom cutting too). 16 ply with a 12,500 pound rating at 100 psi but deforms very nicely even under a Cruiser at 5 psi (even with the inch+ thick sidewalls).

Those would be the heaviest. About 380lbs

If anyone wants a rig for the Michelin XL, I'm trying to get rid of one for $3k.

Oh yeah, they're heavy as hell. But they're all but bullet proof and you will NEVER puncture, cut, or tear one on the trail. And while they bulge and deform nicely at ow pressure, you can actually drive them with zero pressure at trail speeds with rigs in the weight class of what folks here are using.

There is a 1100R16 which workes out to 38x11. But they are a high demand item on the surplus market. The canadian military uses them I don't know that the US does (at least not in large numbers). The canucks have a much smaller military than we do so there are not too many of these tires out there. Discount tire in Edmonton used to have access to these. But From what I have heard from contact there they have been having trouble getting them.

I have not had a chance to take a close look at the Strykers, but they run an XL of some sort, that is significantly smaller than the 1600R20. These shoukld start showing up at Elmendorf and (more so) Eilson DMRO before too long.

I had a Kobuto (sp?) tractor around here for a while. It had 38 inch tall ag tires on a 16 inch rim that were about 12-15 wide.
