Just wondering, why is it that I see so many 9N, 2Ns with 8N hubs? Is there an advantage or what?

Mostly so they can get rid of the skinny 19" tires and use wider 16s.

The newer 6 bolt hole rims are a whole lot easier to find plus the 16 inch rims let you use a wider tire so that you do not have the problem with the tires cutting ruts etc

Seems to me that it would be easier to do what a PO did to my 2N and that was cut out the centers and weld in 15" car rims. My 2n had old steel belted radials on the 15s when I bought it 12 yrs ago. Still has them and even with all the thorny mesquite on my property I have never had one go flat.

Would never trade out my 19s for 16s. 19s make plowing and for nimble overall handling.

Agree. I have one 8N with 16" tires. Much harder to steer than the 19" wheels. If you have a loader or or going to mow the front lawn, 16" wheels may be an advantage.

Definitely! I've been toying with the idea of getting a finish mower and I would want 16s on the 2N then.

I have 15's with green slime added . Every once and awhile I see a spot of green when I am bush hoggin but still no flats .

The tractor had Ford Truck hubs (40's ?) so finding spare tires is a breeze .

My experience is reverse,,, I would never run 19" unless it was a show tractor... All my workers have 16" and I have not broke a hand yet... I have had a few N's with 19" try to break a hand when they hit the least little obstruction...

None of my N's steer hard with 16" tractor tars.

Ya the steel belts in those tires stop the thorns real well.
