Default Re: Original Ferguson TO20 tires?

I thought somebody with newer info would jump in here, but I guess I remember from about 40 years back, the TO-20's, (we had 2 20's & a 30), used a 10-28 tire, which was later designated as a 12.4-28 when the tire industry changed the way they sized them. the TO-30 had one size bigger, like I said, it's been a long time, but I think that's right...I have a soft spot for the lil' gray Fergies, I started raking hay w/the 20 when I was about 9...spent many hours in the hot sun & bugs on it.
PS- I think the 6.00-16 is correct for the front, a tri-rib is what ours had. Some had a narrower front tire.
