    NH T7 tractor tyre size/wheel weights

    Down under I'm being told we can no longer spec a tractor with 650/65R42 tyres and have wheel weights on it. Something to do with the max weight the tyre can handle (think it's also to do with Michelin) I can get 710's on a 42 inch rim and still get wheel weights. All the other machines are...

    650/75r38 questions

    What’s the opinions on this tyre size? Better going for 650/65r42s? I’m Wanting to run 600/65r28s on the front so thought they would be the correct match. Are BKT in the 75 profile a good option or best avoid? Do the 75 profile 650s fit on a rim I’ve got for 650/65r38? Or would I need a...
