Another AG tire ?

Recommended Posts

CDeHeer
I picked up a set of 8" Ag tires at a barn sale last weekend. I've been wanting to switch to Ag's on the LL 3310v for a while and this was just the motivation I needed. I need to know if any of the 10.5's will fit my stock rims which currently run 8.5". I've seen the actual sizes listed as: Carlisle Super lug 21.5" x 12 Carlisle TruPower 22" x 9.5" Deestone 21.5 x 9"


If the Super lugs will fit I'll spend the extra $ for the extra width otherwise I'll settle with the Deestone. The 8" I picked up are "Goodyear super sure traction tractor"




Anyone have any experience with these? I googled and only came up with this.


These tires are molded with the confederate flag on the sidewall. [/img]


I'm also contemplating swaping these with the tires on my TB Horse and putting those on the LL although I've never had a problem with traction while tilling.


Any responce about the fitment appreciated.

I understand that but I'd like to swith from the stock 23x12x8.5 to a 23x12x10.5 My question is will the stock rim allow the mounting of a 10.5" wide tire. Particularly the Super lug with it's actual width of 11" Sorry about the confusion. The 8" I mentioned are for the front.

Zach is correct! They will work fine with 8 1/2" rims. We run 23 X 10.50 X 12's on 8.5 rims on our stock garden tractor pullers. 9.5" ones make tire flatter more grip for pulling! But our stock classes can't use 9.5 rims!

The 23x10.5-12 Tru-Power tire is specifically designed for use with the 7" wide rim which is the stock rim width on your tractor. The 23x10.5-12 Super Lug is designed for an 8.5" rim but many have used it on a 7" rim, however, it will have a more rounded appearance when mounted on a 7" rim. I just checked the Carlisle tire website and they no longer show the 23x10.5-12 Super Lug in their brochure. Not sure if that is an error on the webpage or if they have truly discontinued several sizes. The 23x10.5-12 Tru Power has a very flat profile when mounted on the stock 7" rims.

I'm glad to hear the 10 1/2's will fit the stock rim. I think the Supers look awesome but don't want a bulged look on a 7" rim. I may just go with the Deestone as they are similar to the fronts I plan to mount. Anyone one have any experience with these 8.00 x 4.80 Goodyears I posted?

Here is a question, I just ordered a pair of trupower 26x12x12 for my puller. Are these going to balloon out or anything when they are mounted on my 8.5" wide rims?:O

The Super Lugs are no longer supplied by Carlisle. However, as Tractor Supply is running out of them, they are supplying them in Hi-Run brand and still calling them Super Lugs. They are marked made in New Zealand. They appear identical, perhaps using the same molds.

yes as a standard rule from at least an automotive standpoint the width can only be up to 2 over or (8.5 can go to a 10.5) or 7.0 to 9.0)this however may change with an AG tire with a tube but safety bead recomends no more then 2 sizes or inches manufacturers say sizes because of the metric system used for tire rating in automotive tires p=passenger xxx=width xx=% of width make the profile height xx=rim size in AG tires rim edge to rim edge = your 26 and 12 wide on 12 rim.

For information purposes, here is a set of 23x10.5x12 Nankang AG tires on 10.5 wide rims. These sit nice and flat on the ground and look very good too.

I realise they are 12" wide and my rim is 8.5" wide. I can run with a tube or without because i sit so close to my weight limit that i dont need to run wheel weights or fluid. I just want the most amount of tread on the ground as possible thats why im going with a trupower. The rules where changed this year allowing us to use after market rims and i just wasnt sure if i would really need to go spend the money on that, the wife will be made enough when she gets the account statment from our local tire company ;)
