  1. Given the fact that I have nearly new or new tires and I want to install them and inflate them is there an advantage or disadvantage or pros and cons or ups and downs or goods and bads.... To using tubes. The reason I want to use them is that it's just plain easier in some situations because of not being able to seat the bead properly with a low-volume compressor. Ladies and gentlemen, what be your thoughts?

    I need local help

    I have the small 15x6.00-6 tires on my 310-8. One of the tires split and I bought 2 new ones along with 2 tubes. It was a bear to get the old tire off of the rim and even harder to get the new one on. I ended up going to a tire shop and 2 tire men with big tire tools cursed and moaned trying to get this little tire onto the rim and in the end, either they or I pinched the tube and now the tube needs to be replaced. Anyone around me have the skills, patience or tricks to help me change these stinking tires?

    Wheel Weights

    Can anyone tell me if 23 10.50 12 Wheel Weights will work on 23 9.50 12 wheels?
  4. Anybody had any success mounting Kenda Terra 502 tires on 7.5 x 12 Wheel Horse rims? Kenda says the tire needs a 8.5 x 12 rim. They spec. out as 23 x 10.5 x 12. My 318 rims measure 7.5" from inside of bead to inside of bead. So they just might work. Reason for all this being I have some steep slopes down to the lake. Yard has a toboggan run slope, a couple of 8 - 10 foot drops with flat areas in between. Total drop of about 20 feet in about 100 feet. Plus the soil is Michigan sand. Grass is thin and the old original Carlisles just aren't cutting it anymore. Looking for a more agressive tire for turf. Have read some goon reviews of the 502's on this forum. But not much detail on the rims they were mounted on. Any experiences good or bad would be appreciated. Thanks Old 5 Foot
  5. Anyone know where I can find regular tractor tires to go on my 414-8 I mowed my yard yesterday and it has no traction. I'm wanting regular implement tires for it .this was the first time I mowed with this tractor and it is by far as you all know the best tractor you could ever owned for mowing. Wow!
  6. I have a 1999 314-8 and I am looking for a 2nd set of rear rims for turf tires. I know the oem is 23 x 9.5-12, what other models have the same bolt pattern to fit mine. Will a 510 rims fit ?

    Oh Well What the Heck

    Searched for months but never could find a factory set of LR 18" turf rear tires. Had a set of ATV tires so I mounted them. Actually not a bad look. No worry about traction........still stock and will stay that way.....just need the WH badged 18" rear tires.
  8. set of inside rear wheel weights vintage for round hood tractors
  9. Hey Guys, I have found out that I have a fast leak on the front "drivers" side tire and a slower one on the rear "drivers" side tire. Do you guys know where the best place to find tires (they're a bit worn), and tubes? Not to mention, what is the best way to get them off the wheel? Thank you in advance!

    Firestone Tri Ribs

    I am deciding whether i should get the firestone tri rib tires or the vredestein 5 rib tires.Got any suggestions?
  11. Shea Worden


    I just ordered some 6-ply deestone ags. Hope they work.
  12. I have a 1985 Wheel Horse 312-8 and am going to be using it for mudding and other fun stuff. I want to put some ag tires on it, but am hoping any of you can chime in on good places to get them from, what size I can go up to without modifying the fender and such. Thoughts? Thanks!!! -Bert

    Will 26x11x12 atv tires fit a 520h? They are take offs from a 2006 Polaris atv. Thannks
  14. jim3sr


    would like to know what is the range of tires that will fit my 310-8 with a 42" deck.Have 23by8.5-12 on back and 15by6-6 on front
  15. I picked up a pair of 23 by 10.5 x 12 Carslie tires for free. They have 2-3 plugs in each tire, with about a 3/4" to 1" of plug sticking inside the tire. I'm thinking of putting tubes in when i mount them, but wounder will the plugs poke a hole in the tube over time.. Before you install the tubes, what do you do ? Leave the plugs sticking inside & just install the tubes as is? Remove the plugs completely and install the tubes? Trim the plugs but leave a small amount of it sticking inside the tire? Trim the plugs smooth, flush with the inside of the tire? Thanks in advance for the guidance.

    New Rear Tires on the 518xi

    After pumping up my one leaking original Titan turf one too many times on the 518xi, I splurged and purchased a pair of Kenda K502 4-ply tires in the 23x10.50-12 size. They are a bit cheaper than the Carlisle All Trail that is popular but I feel is a more aggressive tread. It was the first time I purchased tires from GCT Wholesale and was a bit disappointed when I took them out of the box.They were triangular in shape! But I let them warm and some gentle persuasion with my size 12 they were sort of round again for mounting. They are not too aggressive so they should accept chains, but with the blocking may be able to cut through light to medium snow. I still need to put the wheel weights and suitcase weights on as they look like they have too much pressure in them. Trying them out may be a problem as I looked at the long-term forecast to mid-March - and no snow is forecast. I may try the next size up on the 523Dxi if these work out. Also, check your hubs for tightness. I had the wheels off to install the lug nuts about four years ago with about 40 hours use since then. This last year it wasn't used because of having the diesel. They were just beginning to move on the axle. In fact originally when I checked I thought they were tight.
  17. I 'm making this thread on the partial restore of my 312 that I introduced here a few weeks ago.. This will give me a place to post the many questions I'll encounter. The current plan is to get it running and see what other bugs it has besides carb cleaning, Then I plan to give all the sheetmetal a good paint job. Currently not sure about how far I'll go on painting the tractor chassis. My initial thought was this was going to be by worker garden tiller tractor. My oldest son was home this past weekend and when my wife asked what he wanted for Christmas he promptly said that " old red tractor dad is working"on would be great for his new house. ......so you can see where this is headed! He's actually a fairly good mechanic, so his hands will get dirty before this is completed I've sand blasted and painted the rims so I can get some wheels under it. I used XO-Rust Aluminum for the first coat and it was too silver. Then I used some Rustoleum High heat engine paint for the second coat and it looked a lot closer to the original gray-silver. The book says it came with 23x9,50-12 rear tires. The original tires were terribly dry rotted. Today I saw some 23x10.5-12 reat tires on Craigslist. Can anyone tell me if they will fit or will they be too wide? since I'm in Texas I won't need inside room for snow chains. As i previously mentioned the engine would run when i sprayed gas into the carb, but not on it's own. The fuel system was very gunked up after sitting for a couple of years. I've cleaned the tank, replaced tank grommet, valve, hoses and filter. I soaked the carb for 3 days to dissolve the hard grey/black residue that was built up on the top bowl faces and everywhere. My carb parts kit came and valve cover gaskets came in today. This weekend i hope to adjust the valves and clean the breather, Then reassemble the carb. Looking forward to hear how it will run. Most of the sheet metal has surface rust, but the rear fender pan has some heavy pitting. I didn't see a 1985 tractor manual for the 312-8 on the website, did I miss it? I found the 1986 manual and noticed it listed an hour meter and alarm lights on the dash that mine doesn't have. Were these options in 86, or new in 86? As a newbie, I appreciate the warm welcome and appreciate your kind guidance!

    Tire size on stock wheels

    What is the widest tire I can mount on a stock rear C-161 wheel? Currently has 23-8.50's. Could it handle a 23-10.50? I have plenty of clearance. I'm just worried about the wider tire looking goofy or not mounting up on the stock wheel. I want a little more width in an Ag style tire. Thanks.
  19. I recently thought of the idea of filling my tires for my 312 with biodegradable antifreeze but then wondered if it will help the tire to dry rot? Has anyone tried this before or have any input my other option is to put in tubes and fill them instead to kinda make like a water jacket thing.
  20. What type of tire tread seems to work best on the front of a tractor used to plow snow? I only have experience with Turf-Savers, and I wasn't real impressed. Also, are front weights worth it?

    26x12x12 Tires on WH 522Xi

    Maybe theirs already been a convo on this. But I couldn't find one. I just got a 522Xi, and it came with the dualies. Im looking to drop the dualies and go with some larger/wider rear tires. 26x12x12 is what I have in my sights. Anyone else who has done this Id like to hear some feed back. How much trimming of fenders was need. Will stock rims work or do I need to order new ones.(links to rims would be good if thats the case) These are the tires looking to buy http://www.summitracing.com/parts/crr-523360/overview/ Any other recommendations in that size Id be happy to hear/see and hear your success/horror stories lol Thanks!
  22. In a previous thread, several folks asked me how I painted my rims with tires already mounted. I recently did another set, so I illustrated the process as I did it. Typically, I like to paint the rims after they are mounted anyways, because inevitably when you have tires mounted on painted rims you’ll always scratch or nick them somewhere. I like to get the rims all cleaned up, blasted and primed, then mount my tires. Here’s my process: 1) Rims were sandblasted and primed with self-etching primer. Tires and tubes were mounted. Everything was wiped down with a pre-kleeno wax and grease remover prior to taping. 2) Using blue 3M tape, I go all the way around the rim slipping the tape between the rubber and rim occasionally tucking it tight with a very small standard screwdriver. 3) Then I create a wider tape ring a few inches out from the rim lip. 4) Slide the whole thing into a kitchen garbage bag. 5) Cut a hole in the bag revealing your tape ring below. 6) Tape the bag to your tape ring previously created on the tire. 7) For silver rims, I like Eastwood Silver Argent rally wheel paint and I use a Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear. http://www.eastwood.com/silver-argent-rally-wheel-paint-set.html 8) I wipe the rims down a few more times with a pre-kleeno wax and grease remover, blow them off with the gun, then shoot two coats of color and two coats of clear. I find that the Rust-Oleum clear holds a much better shine if you don’t let it set long between coats. As soon as it flashes, hit it with round 2. I do all four coats in about 20 minutes.

    replacement turf tires

    i am sure I am bringing up an old topic but what are my choices in replacing a set of old b f Goodrich 6x12 turf tires on my 604 that is getting a barn fresh redo. its tires are so dry rotten that tubes are not a way out. are there any new ones getting made out there that look like the older ones, I really like the aggressive thread pattern on them. think I looked at every site on the internet and cant find any so I figured I ask the pros thanks
  24. Hey All, Well like the title says, I have acquired my first Wheel Horse. It is a 1974 C-100 with a plow. She is in pretty rough shape body wise, and a bit cold blooded, but once you get her warmed up she can plow as much snow as I can throw at here. I don't know a thing about tractors so please be easy on me. I plan on rebuilding the engine and cleaning up the body a bit. This is the first time I have took on a project like this, so I'm hoping some people on this forum can put up with my ignorance and help me out along the way. After all I am way out of my realm here, by day I am a Humidification product engineer. So my very first question to you folks is this: I have been lurking around the forums and google and I see all these, I hope Im saying this right, like "pulling tires" like big tractor tire treads. How do I get a set of those and how do I know what size I need? (there is my first ignorant question, sorry) So any help would be much appreciated... Thanks in advance AJ Oh I tried to upload a photo but it is way bigger than the 1MB limit. Any camera now days takes every picture at least triple that. Update: with pictures now (Thanks to my new supporter status). I will get better ones tonight as I just uncovered it this year. It was on the side of my garage, I know that is probably a sin in some of your eyes, but rest assured it is now going to be taken care like a new born baby!
  25. There's another thread on here talking about tires used in snow removal, Mike (Sparky) mentioned that the turf tires work better. That threw me for a loop but you guys know better than me, I haven't used any of this equipment yet. I have a steep hill that comes up to my place and I have chains but I would rather not use them if possible,(unless there is ice underneath I will have no choice). The drive and lot is all blacktop. I will be puting a snow blower on one tractor and a plow on another. I also have a few sets of 50lb each weights, and some 20lb each front weights. What have you guys found to be the best combination to use?
