As above. We have 11/12.4 x 28 tyres on 9" rim width.
I really need the fatter tyres but can't remember if these also need wider rims.
Anyway, if anybody has got a set to sell, i'd be interested.

13-24 will be 14.9x24 won't they? Plenty of tractors around 100hp with that size on the front, just need adaptor plates in the centre.

@JLTate has the market cornered but the MF 135 owners are mad for them. :(
Now there’s a thought. Maybe I can do a deal with the lad I sold the MF135 skid unit to out of my donor Cyclone.
I do not see the need for megabucks to change hands.
I seem to remember you have a Lamborgini tractor, quite a few of them had the same stud pattern on the front wheels as a Mf 135.
i think you are right. The lambo has 14.9’s I think as well.

Fat wheels will just pick up more mud , my mf30 wasn't the best in wet conditions
You may well be right Bob. I am just casting about for inspiration, when the honest truth now is it’s probably best left till spring unless we get a miraculous dry spell. One year we only got 4mm of rain from now till a Christmas.
