Farmall 140 Original Front Tire Design

Postby rcbaughn » Mon Jun 16, 2014 8:44 pm

I found these and am wondering if this is what came on the 140 from the factory? I really want to get as close as I can to original factory specs as I can, just not sure if this knobby style tire is correct or if a regular three rib would do it.

Also, what company made the 140's tires? Mines a 1965. I've done a good bit of research on all the questions I'm having to ask here to keep from hindering all you good fellas, but I'm having to ask for your knowledge on some of this harder to find info. Sometimes you just can't replace decades of know-how and experience.

Most likely 3 rib.

It might've had these, made by Firestone:

They used different vendors but Firestone and Goodyear were very common.

In '65 the rear tires were most likely 45 degree straight lugs. Carlisle makes a tire that is the closest to original looking that I can find. M.E. Miller Tire has them: http://www.millertire.com/products/trac ... ialist-ha/
But any good tire dealer I would think could get them.

Thanks, I ended up going with a three rib tire just because they were cost efficient and seem to be what most go with. I also don't think the rough tread on that one I linked would've looked great the more I pondered it.
