I have a 1937 B that I am trying to get tires for, I noticed that most of the 4.00x15 or the 5.00x15 tires are called for only be tubeless. I know that the tractor calls for a tube to be used. Is there anyway to convert the tractor over to tube less or do you have to use a tube. Which is more original the 4.00 or the 5.00 and on the back is the 9.5 or the 11.2 more original? If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it.
Thanks for all of the replies on the tubes, never buying tires before I didn't know what I could do about that issue. I'm about to order the tires for the tractor and I was wondering for the front tires which was more original the 3 rib or the 4 rib. When I look at different peoples tractors I see a lot of people have 4 rib. Any information I would appreciate it.
Back to tubes in a tubeless. In tubeless, the bead would break when the pressure was low and you hit something. Thin you had a flat. Not the case with tubes. Also, you can fill a tube with water and not worry about rusting the wheel. Low tire pressure gives better traction on some surfaces.
