So, we got this HT23 and the rear tires are cracked and leaking CA fluid. It's got 26x12-12 goodyear terra ag tires on it. Is there a bigger diameter ag tire that will fit? How about if I switch to the 15" rims?

Also, since this tractor is destined for loader work, What rib tires are available for the front. Bigger is better for rolling over uneven ground with weight in the bucket. I'd like to find something similar to the 20 or 18's, but still wide enough not to sink in the garden. Maybe front ag's would have as good a sideways grip as rib tires.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks, Dave

I believe it was the 1250 that was available with 15" wheels and 27" diameter tires.The 1886's had 10" front wheels with 20" diameter tires.I converted my 1886 to hubs and bolt on wheels so I know you can get 10" wheel to fit your HT23.

27" tall ag tires on a 15" rim are a rare bird. I would stick with a 12" rim and look at atv tires if you are looking for aggressive tire larger than the 26" that was on there.

Also,a 15" or 16", 6 bolt implement wheels such as for a hay wagon will fit,and there is a variety of widths and offsets available.

You could get the 15" rims with the 1250 all the way up to the 1886.

After searching through lots of posts, etc. It does seem the 12" rim is the more popular. And the majority go for the Carlisle Tru-Powers. I took a good look at the tractor and it seems that if I go any bigger, I won't have room for chains in rear if they are needed.

As far as the front, we were leaning toward the 5 rib Vredestein V61 which is only available up to 18".

Have any of you loader guys out there had trouble sinking with narrower 3 rib tires? This tractor is intended for my Dad and I hope for him to be able to use it in his garden which gets very soft.
