    Tires for plowing with a JD B

    I need to get all new tires for my JD B I just got. My question is if I might do some plowing with it what tires should I get that are reasonably priced? The tires that are on the B are 11.2-38 on rear and the fronts are 5.00-15.

    Reasonably priced and good working are almost two separate categories. Thereís a lot of personal preference involved with this question.

    Chains will work wonders for the rear regardless of tires. The fronts are almost along for the ride.

    For me? I would do the Firestone field and road 22.5 degree rear tires with a tri-rib front tire. Not only does it look correct for the tractor, but they are a great performer.

    Thatís just my $.0000000002. Please take my opinion for what you paid.

    Would the 11.2-38 be a good size or do I need to go a bit wider? I think my wheel measures about 8.5" where the bead sits eh

    For a B, yeah, Iíd say thatís a good choice.

    Again, my personal opinion. Chat with the guys around you locally and find out what works well there. They already know. If you donít have this resource, then a good quality tire like I recommended is a great start.

    We have several B's all of them have 12.4's or equivalent on them. The old tire size 11-38 is equal to 12.4-38 in the new sizing.
    The first pic is the old 11-38 original tires on our '45 B and the second is 12.4- 42 Firestone field and road on our '48 BN.

    The parts book shows several tire options depending on what wheel/width it came with. I would check your wheel width and then decide on what tire size to go with.
