  • Hi Friends

    if I look on my rear tires it mark 95-32 in the book it says 8-32 early and late 10-28 can I still buy 95-32?

  • Yep, like AL said, the size is now 9.5 x 3. 8 x 32 is the rim/wheel size; that is a common mistake often made by folks. If you have the 32" tires and wheels, chances are you have the original hat rims too. If so, and if loaded with Calcium Chloride -get them drained and saved now especially if getting new tires put on! If Ca Chl is present and once drained and wheels are not cancerous, get them washed out good and invest in new tubes too -do not reuse old tubes once drained. I have been dealing with MILLER TIRE in Wauseon, OH for 25 years and get great service. I also take my tractor tire/wheels to my local Firestone AG Dealer and let them do the work; they have all the right equipment, trained people, and it's well worth it. It is also cheaper to get them shipped to a commercial dealer than to your house as well.

  • 95-32 is actually 9.5" x 32". There may also have been a 8" x 32", I believe on a 9" rim. Very early on in 1939 Ford offered the 10" x 28" tire size. Early rims had a cast 6 lug mounting, both 28" and 32". Early center disk, both 28" and 32" had 12 holes, even they only used 6 holes. Bolt circle for the early cast lugs and hat rim were slightly different. Rather then only 6 holes in later versions. Sometime in 1939 the Hat Rims were introduced.
    Hope this helped.
