Where to find tractor tires for jeeps

I want some skinny tractor tires for a 16" or 15" wheel , not over 35" tall.

Where can I find. I have searched with no luck yet.

Thanks in advance.

I would call a local tractor supply store to verify...they will make for a dang bumpy ride though!

Edit, guess they do make them.

I've bought them at local CO-OPS (feed mills). The name brands were American Farmer, and Goodyear made a set. American Farmer were by far the best and cheapest. Hopefully your axles and drivelines are upgraded. These tires are very aggressive and will point out any weak link in your drive train.

Would a tire designed for a tractor be designed to hold together on the highway at sustained highway speeds?

Trust me, I grew up in an orchard and I have driven plenty of tractors to say that there is no way he would even get close to highway speed. You would not believe the amount of weight it takes to balance those things. Anything over about 25-30 and they just start to bounce so bad you barely can go any faster.

Mine were 33's and handled better on the road than my previous boggers. I had no problem going 45mph. There really stiff so you only need a few #'s of air. Couldn't be beat in deep mud.

That was because your tires were half full of liquid calcium for the weight..My Ford 8N did the same thing when we tried to pull it home to fast..Without the liquid in them they will not hop at higher speeds..They are not DOT approved though and are not legal to run on the road.(Except on tractors under 25mph)...

I found some today,Denman Farmhand R-1..9.50x16x33 $120ea..I bought 5 and I ordered 5 soft eights 16x7 with 4" backspacing $49ea..

They are for my cherokee..Elohim1 and me trimmed my fenders and I will be raising it up 4" or so but I figured I would get the tires and wheels on it first to see how high I will need to raise it..It is not going to be on any paved roads just trails and mud etc..
