Tires for #31-12KE01 312-H

Recommended Posts


I have a 1990 wheel horse classic model # 31-12KE01 and need to replace all 4 tires. The sizes are 15x6 8 NHS on front and 23x9.5 12 NHS Rear. I'm wondering if anyone has any specific tire they have purchased and found to be reliable? I have an acre yard with a few hills but nothing severe. I've looked at Carlisle, Marastar to name a few. Also do most folks keep the same rims and take them all in at one time to a local tire garage to have them mounted or just buy new ones with rims? Is having the correct size shown above all I need in order to make sure its an exact fit for my tractor?

I suspect most of us reuse the same rims. If you want, you can have the old tires removed, sand and paint the rims, then have new tires installed. Just an FYI many of the foreign made tires run smaller than listed size. While the Deestone brand are good tires, they seem to run the smallest. The US Carlisle tires are closest to size, they are now foreign made. 

Tread pattern is really user preference depending what your using it for. 
:wwp: with the new shoes.

      Inexpensive - Carlisle X Trac ATV Bias Tire - 16x6.50-8 Good quality (I expect) Should look nice with my large rear aggies  
      I don't know how much these have been discounted, but I expect anything you find like this from a good brand will be 2X to 3X the price. $45 each at Amazon. This tire is discontinued. 
      Rough measurement seems they are about 16" tall and the lugs are about 1/2" deep.

      I’m trying to restore my grandfathers old 252-H to use around my property. The tires are shot and the rims aren’t too far behind. Anyone have any recommendations for rims and tires that would fit well on it? 
      right now it has 22 x 7.50 - 12 on the back and 15 x 6 - 6 on the front.

      I just bought my first ever tractor - 1989 520H. One of the front tires has a slow leak, and they are both showing signs of age, so am looking at buying new. When I look at some of the options on the Miller site, they have 3 basic types of tires as options in the 16x6.50-8 size ..
      circumferential ribs (either equal sized or central rib larger diameter) ag style chevron 'super lugs' turf tire - quadrilateral overlapping treads  
      What are the considerations for considering these different tire types ?
      The current rear tires are turf type, no weights, but with chains.
      I have 1.5 acres, quite hilly, and am using the tractor for some mowing, tilling, and garden plowing.
      Appreciate some perspective, suggestions.

      Hi Guys,
      I just bought some Carlisle Turfmaster 24x12-12 rear tires to replace the 23x8.50-12 tires I have on there now. I was wondering which rims I should buy to fit these bigger tires. The charts say an 8.50 width rim but should the offset stay the same or does it need to change? Any other dimensions I should be concerned about?
      Thanks in advance.
      Hope everyone is healthy and well!
