I love the tires that are on this f20 in this picture. Does anyone know of a reproduction company who makes one like this or close? My favorite part of them is the way the tread wraps way around onto the sidewalls.

While hunting in Nebraska I found an abandoned barn with various old equipment in it including two wheels and tires from a farmall regular both
in great shape with the tread design shown (I took a pic to show a friend). Is the f20 the same size tire. If so I can get access to tires but
they are in East Nebraska.

The original tread design, that Harvey Firestone made,i believe was 1932, is still being made at the Firestone plant in Des Moines Iowa, It was similar to the diamond tread. We had a good tour guide!

WRONG


I work at that plant and attended the morning tour with my dad who used to be a builder out there. Any old style tread tire that you see being sold by vendors such as miller are NOT made by firestone. Made by an outside mfg with the firestone name on the tire and royalties paid.

Took me more than a few calls to find the owner who had no idea that they were in the old barn or even what kind of tractor they went on. He is
the nephew of the now deceased owner and now needs to get someone to tell him what they are worth. I referred him to the YT website and told him
to communicate if he wants to sell them. I guess he believes they are priceless. He also was mad that I was in the barn even though I had
written permission from his lessee. He can handle this without my help.
