Just took it off the front of a running tractor. Yes, it was holding air. I can't read the date code. Do you think WWII or Korean Conflict?

Be lucky to get a few years out of a new replacement ! They don't make them like they used to.

Is that 16inch -- it likely to be so stiff you will need to cut it off. If that is the same as the tiers I have they are flat most of the time and you cannot tell-- very thick and hard.

Yes, it would make a nice raised flower bed.

If it was holding air I'd still be using it.

I have one worse than that on a grain drill. It's always flat when I go to use it but it will stay up a couple of days so I can plant and park it. Every year I think it won't air up but it always does, after sitting flat all year.

Looks like a typical non directional tire used from ww2 until the late 70?s, hard to pinpoint without code. Firestone still makes them.

If it was holding air, Why did you take it off?

A little paintable calk, power sander and some black spray paint and it will look great until you put it back on your MM, I presume, and use it.
That wasn't much help was it!!!! Just a way to spend a frigid day in your heated shop this weekend. HeHe.
