Your 57 Cub would most likely have come from the factory with 8-24 rear tires on it. Today’s designation for that tire is 8.3-24. If you still have the tires that were on it, check the size.

So even if the the rim is stamped 7 - 24 It would probably have the 8-24 tires

That would be the width and diameter of the rim itself but doesn’t directly dictate the width of the tire. Generally a tire would be about 1-1/2” wider in section width than the rim it’s mounted on.
The 11.2’s mounted on my Super A are on 10” wide rims. 12.4’s can be mounted on 10” rims as well as 8.3’s, even 9.5’s can be mounted on 7”Rims. The 7x24 tires were available on the earlier Cubs and were generally mounted on the narrow 6” wide rims.
Incidentally $207 per tire is a pretty good price for that size especially for Firestone’s. I may look into that and see what shipping would be.
Might also see what TireGeek can do for me too as they are very close to me and I can avoid the shipping cost. I’d like to get a set for the ‘47 circle Cub I’m still in search of. ;)
I agree and think the tires you want for your granddads Cub would be 8.3’s.

Correction: I read that wrong, it’s $415 per tire :shock:
Nope, not happening! You should be able to buy a set for that price!

That is the rim width and diameter. You can run a tire wider than the rim, just like automotive tires. If you run the same with tire as rim it will looked bulged on the sidewalks and not like a normal tapered tire. You can run 9.5s on there if you want.

But I agree get the 8" wide tires like it came with.

It’s probably a very limited production run. I can’t imagine that much trouble in changing the tooling if they even do that. There would be limited interest in that size here but those are probably manufactured in India or China and I’ll bet there’s a market for that size over seas.
The additional cost would be in shipping them here to the U.S.. Either that or they reason this for a collector and not a farmer market. Collectors are willing to pay up for originality.

Hi,
Read my post at your other tire post, if you didn't. It shows what rear tire sizes IH used on which rims.
They did not use the 7" x 24" tire on the 7" wide rims.

I would buy 8.3 x 24 tires.
I guess Firestone doesn't make 8.3x24 tractor tires with the R-1 tread.

I have read on here that the BKT tires are good.

Here is a listing at ebay for 2 together, I guess. You can look at the tread design.
It says down the page some that they are BKT tires.
I don't know anything about the seller, I put the listing on here so you could see the tires. :)

https://www.ebay.com/itm/TWO-8-3X24-8-3 ... 2483423339

If you want Firestone tires, I guess the only size with Ag tread are the size you found, but I haven't looked everywhere online.

I’ve got 8.3 Firestone field and road tires on my lo-boys they’ve held up really well.

Glen your information is for BKT tires. Billy is looking for Firestone tires so he could put his grandfathers tractor back to as close to original as it was when he lost his life on it.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Hi,
Yes, I know the info is for BKT tires, I simply put it on in case he wanted to buy 8.3x24 tires.
The tread pattern is about the same as in the mid or later 1950's.
There aren't that many makers of 8.3x24 ag tread tires nowadays.
Firestone doesn't seem to make any 8.3x24 ag tread tires that I saw online, but I didn't look everywhere.
Command52 hasn't said what size tires the Cub has.

Had you bought a new Cub, back in the day, with 7-24 tires they would have come to you mounted on 6" rims. I don't think the 7-24 tires will look right on 7" rims. Those tires are quite expensive because they are limited run, niche market tires. I know Miller owns the molds for those front tires, probably for the rears, too. I don't know where they are being made, though.

Like most online retailers, I wouldn’t put complete faith in what their web site tells you. Inventory changes happen much faster than web site updates. Give Millers a call and see if they have the Firestone fronts and rears that you want.
