I just recently found this site and have been reading lots. My problem is I have an old AR that needs a new rear tire. Size is 13-26. Anybody know what that turns into with todays sizes? I was told 13.6-26 and was also told 14.9-26. I don't want the tires to be too small for the tractor and don't want to spend that kind of money and not like it. Thanks for any input.

One of our site supporting vendors Miller tire has a chart and explains the different tires sizes and what they mean. :thumbup1gif:

They also have their own sub-forum here and you can ask them questions directly.:good2: I'm sure you'll find them super helpful and friendly.

They are good people. I was at their WHSE this summer picking up some tires. Who would have thought that a tractor tire WHSE would have been out in the middle of a corn field.

I have 13.6x26 on my '53 AR, they look good with 6.00x16 up front. Likely shouldve been 6.50's but it seems to sit level. Sorry I don't have any pictures to share, I work our of town a lot & seems thats when I'm on these sites. Hope this helps

Yeah, Miller was the first company that came to mind before I read any replies. Have sent some business their way more than once.

Thanks guys, got a lead on a used tire which I will be chasing this weekend. As long as it's decent it will be cheaper than two new ones, (I hate replacing only one, looks funny). Time will tell.

i would hit the farm auctions, you can usually find descent tires, cheap, and if you dont like them, go to another auction.

Side note/tip: I have learned that my photographic memory is not nearly photographic as i used to think...pre-"smart" phone days, i carried a little laminated card with ALL my tractor trailer etc tire sizes as well as serial numbers for all my tractors. the serial numbers are because who knows, i may find the consecutive serial number tractor in a junk pile...since i have a "smart" phone now, i have all that on a document on my phone.

I have a spark plug/oil type list on my phone for the equipment we have. Comes in real handy.
