Which size looks better on a 52 DC-3 wide front. The old gal will be a show, parade, trail ride only tractor. Our old DC's
always wore 12.4 x 38's as we were row crop with beets and beans (pinto). But I'm kind of leaning toward 13.6 Firestone Field
and Road for this tractor.

I believe it will give it a bit of the forward slant with the 13.6 rubber. I'm not opposed to saving money on old tractors and
any other brand recommendations would be welcome. What do you all run.

Any ideas on this?

Thank's Beagle

I would prefer to buy American products if I can.

13.6 X 38 is the correct tire size. 12.4 X 38 is better suited for the SC.

I think 12.4 are ok for war models and earlier, but the 13.6 are right for the later ones. My uncle had 14.9's on his DC, so that's what I got used to seeing, and they don't seem oversized to me either. The BKT tires have become pretty popular because of reasonable price, decent quality, and have a 45 degree lug which is more appropriate for these tractors.

13.6x 38 on my 52 DC slid all the way in on the axle. Works very good for me and I think it looks right too.

My DC had these 13.6 on it when I bought it and it looked right. I bought a set of Galaxy Earth Pro's for on it the same size.

13.6-38 is the normal size for most DC's and quite possibly will be the cheaper option. 15.5-38's look really good and pull good, but are a bit more expensive, 14.9-38's are crazy expensive. Don

I am aware the this post does not pertain to a parade tractor but we found the following an improvement to WORKING DCs that are uses for heavy work such plowing and disking. For what it is worth------

The "D" Case shown on my You tube (Ron Satzler) started life as a DC3. As the You Tube video shows in the rear axle, it got modified to a standard wide front and smaller rear tires but kept the DC final drives. This slowed down 3rd and made 3rd much more usable for the heavy plowing and disking. I also experience the regular DCs with big bore and high compression and found sometime the 3 bottom plow to be a struggle in 3rd. 2nd on these DCs became the main plowing gear which was slower that 3rd on the one modified to a "D" as described above. The modified one became the favorite plowing tractor.

The 14.9x38 will get you more ground speed in high gear and will pull better than 15.5x38's. The 14.9 put more rubber on the ground and is bigger in diameter than a 15.5x38 tire.
