For now i want to show it and do some parades Please put your in put in on this as it will be a lager expense and you have lead me in the correct direction for 3 years now. It is a 1957farmall cub. Thanks Billy.

With 7 inch rims, it would have originally had either 8-24 or 9-24 (8.3 or 9.5 in today's sizes).

funny, today I changed a pair of rear tires on a 57 cub for the original owner, yes he is really old, tires were like prying rocks the rubber is so hard, it is 70 plus old rubber, they are 8-24 firestones I took off, still had the factory rubber, the sidewalls were blowing out is why they got changed
