    the only tractor tires ive seen it a 15" rim are the multi ribbed that are on the front of alot of tractors. one i know of off the top of my head is a JD 4020, the front tires are about 35" tall, but no tread, just like 6 or 7 ribs around the circumference.

    the skid steer tires are preaty aggressive and alot use a 16.5" wheel, but not sure of the diameter of them, probably 33-35"

    these are the only thing i can think of off the top of my head. everything else i can think of uses alot bigger wheel.

    easy fix..............go to a local ag tire dealer tell them what you want and they will find it. Or go browsing on denam or goodyear firestone and look through those sizes.

    I have a 1948 cj2a that has tires from a trencher on it 29x12.5-15 mounted on standard 15x10 in wheels. The great thing is around here a 31 m/t cost 100 that is the cheapest, my tires cost 115:eek1: it was a no brainer.

    I can run with any ford or gm up to 35's before I get stuck. most of the time in 2wd I can go places that toyotas, other jeeps cant go in 4x4 (ones with 33's)

    go with an agtire you cant go wrong except on the street.

    i'd take a look at what those 31s, 33s, and 36s cost. maybe try running them.
    here's a link to a post i made on another board about this.
    i'm OffRoad on that board as well.

    question: are tractor tires a lot heavier than comparable off road tires?
