My Dad bought a WD-45 in 1957. He had a choice of rims and tires and bought the 13 inch rims with the 13-28 tires (old sizing) The new sizing was 14.9 on the 13 inch rim.

And there you have it !!! We cannot prove it by the parts book that there was ever a 13 inch rim for a WD45 and then someone says there was such a thing. So the lesson here is this: there were rims of 10, 11, 12 and 13 inch and you might find any of them on a WD or WD45 tractor. Also, rim width is measured with the tire removed and on the inside of the bead shoulder, not the outside.

Well no matter what size rims and brand of tires, what you really need is some cast iron weights, some neighbor of mine had Allis's they had huge factory cast weight's that stuck out from the tire about 3-4 inches, and i am sure they had fluid also. They plowed with a 4-14 John Deere pull type plow, and plowed down sweetclover,this is in the late 50's. They didn't spin out, and that sweetclover was 5 foot tall, think of the green manure, them tires had to bite thru.

My WD45 has the 14.9x 28's Firestones on 13" rims and weighs 6,000 lbs. it always spins out but never runs out of power ( farmstock 15.5x28 max).

According to Tractor Data the 12" rim was the only offering for the WD45. The D17 had the 12" and 13" rims.

You didn't read far enough in Tractor Data because if you go into dimensions it says 12-28 and 13-28.
