I'd watch on E-Bay. A word of caution on the 26x12x12 lug tires. You will need wider rims, with the correct offset for clearance between tractor and tire. You also may have to raise or alter your seat pan.

I really like my 26x12x12's I would do it again. Next time I would know what to expect. I had to take them off and put the turf tires on untill I worked out problems. I know many members use a smaller size.

Use whatever size suits you. I have two sets of 26x12x12, a set of 23x10.5x12, and two sets of 23x8.5x12. I cut my rims and weld in bands to make the wider wheels needed for the large tires. Here is a picture of me on my 713S. The rear tires are 26x12x12 turfs that I purchased on ebay. The front tri-ribs came from Rustybore's Tire Store also on ebay.

I have the tires your thinking about. It's on my 64 Landlord. I had to get rims, and also fabricate the seat pan. I also have a few 23x10.5x12 and love them. They are a bit cheaper than the 26inch tires, and you don't have to worry about what rims you need. I get most of my tires from Tucker tire on Ebay. The only problem with Tucker, is you never know what brand tires your going to get. I personally don't care too much. Tucker seems to be a tad cheaper than the other sellers. Do the research and see what works best for you. Good luck8D

I've had good experiences buying tires from Rustybore's; been very helpful and reasonably priced. If you're close by, he'll also mount the tires. I purchased Carlisle TruPower 23x10.50-12 ags since they mounted 'flatter' on the 7" rims I had. I've been very happy with them. http://cgi.ebay.com/26x12-00-12-SUPER-LUG-a-Quality-AG-LUG-Tire_W0QQitemZ300186662813QQihZ020QQcategoryZ50377QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

If you have a set of the narrow wheels, I like the 4.00x8 tri-ribs. The 16x6.50x8 tri-ribs that fit the wide front wheels are nice but they are a little too costly for me.

You didn't mention what you plan to use the tractor for, so here are a couple of things to think about before you buy. By using the 26x12x12 tires the back of your tractor will be higher. This "rake" in the tractor will be compounded as you get further back from the center line of the back tire. This can cause problems with rear mounted attachments. A tiller will not go into the ground as deep, and it can change the entry angle of a breaking plow. In addition, the rear tire will not fit down in the furrow so this will change the side angle and keep the plow from working as designed. The larger tire can also make it much more difficult to side a mower deck under the tractor and can slightly change the angle of the belt which may cause alignment issues. They will increase the ground speed of the tractor in all gears. I just wanted to point out these things in case you hadn't though of them. All that be said, they would look great on most tractors! Good Luck! Dan

Check out your local Walmart if it has a tire shop. I bought Carlisle turfs for short money and was shocked when they only charged me for the tires. No charge for mounting the tires. They don't have Trupowers on the shelf but the manager said if it is made by Carlisle they can get them.

Good point Dan: Im using it for tilling, but will alter it if needed. Last year i purchased a Dixxie Chopper to cut my grass, so i wont need it for that. You are rite, i never did think of these things but i will work around them, knowing what to look for. Thank You

I did order the tires from http://stores.ebay.com/Rustybores-Tire-Store, and have to say the gentleman i spoke to was very knowledgable about wheels and tires, i would recommend to anyone.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
