Tires & Tubes on early Broadmoor

Recommended Posts

HammockJA
Recommendations please? I had to replace one tire on the early broadmoor so I took both of the tires off. The original Goodyear studs were still in place but one of them had rotted. These are tube! Couldn't believe this, can I get tubes that size with the 90deg. bend on the valve stem? I would like to back stud fronts, is Carlisle the only game in town? How do those look? Can this rim go tubeless? I had to cut those Goodyears away to get them off the rim, they made a good tire back then.

Hi John. Those small tires are hard to find. I need a set for my Homesteader but have been dragging my feet on getting them. They were around $30 a piece from a dealer, and they would have had to order them. I've seen them on the internet cheaper but was leary about ordering them online. I have chen shein studded tires on my Allis B110, can't find goodyears anymore. They are supposed to be tube tires but I used tubless valve stems and got it to seal fine without a tube. I don't like the tubes because water gets inbetween the wheel and tube and you get a rusty mess. I think thats what caused this on a parts tractor (B110) that I got.

The wheels rusted out around the valve stem, I've seen this on a couple other wheels with tube tires on a sears. I think the new carsliles are tubless, so as long as the tubeless valve stems will work on your wheel, then you might as well go tubeless. Hope this helps. Chris

I got a set off 5.30 X 4.50 X 6 a few years ago. They have a funny name, can't remember it right off. Nankong or something, but I am not pleased with them. They have very short studs. I would go for the Carlisle. I even thought about a rib tire, I haven't checked the web site yet to know if they are available..

Northern has studded tiers 530/450x6 for $17.99 Miller tire has studded tires 410X6 for $17.00 I know there are alot of makers that still make them. Goodyear dosn't but the Carlisle, I think are just as good. I got a set of 480x8 for the front of my 64 Landlord and they have been good. Elon
