    Unstyled B Front Tire - Question About Sizes

    My project has a narrow front with 2 miss matched worn out truck or trailer tires, both say 6.50x16, they are mounted on stock spoked rims.
    I want to put 3 rib on them.
    It came from factory with 4 ply 5.00x15 goodyear tires.

    I did notice that the fronts are very close to the bottom of radiator, but do clear and is drivable.

    Question: Can you put 5.00x15 tires on my rims? Is there a stamp somewhere that states 15" or 16".
    Also if it will work will the tractor sit much lower in the front with 15" tires?

    FYI- it has 48"x 5 1/4" steel rears with lugs.

    Thanks in Advance...

    If you have 6.50x16 tires on the front of your B somebody has put 16" diameter wheels on the front of your tractor. Only 16" tires will fit those wheels. You will need 15" diameter wheels to put the OEM 5.00x15 tires on your tractor.

    There is a 5.50x16 3-rib tire that will fit on your 16" rims and is also lower in height than your current tire that I would use in your situation.
