tractor tire sizes?

Is there a tractor tire size calculator or a chart somewhere that shows overall diameter? Tractor tire sizing is like chinese to me for some reason. Looking for around a 40" or so v tread i can throw on the back when hitting the deaper stuff.. I know this isnt that big, but its all that will fit. For now

michelinag.com, then click on tire selector,then you will see a spot to identify tires by overall diamete, or what ever you want. pay attention to the wheel sizes and overall width. actually 16.5x r 16.1. 40" tall 17" wide on a 16.1 wheel.

the first number is the tire width and the second number is the wheel diameter.

for instance, a 14.9-24 is 14.9" wide and takes a 24" wheel.

you have to look up the rest of the specs. personally, i use firestoneag.com. any of them work just fine though.

Titan tires are made in the united states. Select overall diameter and type tire height in.

21.5 16.1 Goodyear's.

Measure 44 tall 21 wide

I widened stock 16 inch chevy rims 8 inches so they are 14.5 wide.

Here's a 21.5 x 16.1 Firestone next to an S-15 Jimmy. When mounted on a 16" wheel it measures close to 47'' tall.

the 16.9's are cheaper and will go through more without getting stuck... but hey, go ahead and get the 21.5-16.1's.

I get my 21.5 16.1's from work for free. Allot of sprayer carts and swathers around here run them. They have some bad sidewall cracks and have really slow leak's, but I'm a cheep bastard and am not worried about pumping them up every so often.

Are there any around 52-55" for a 20" wheel?

I came across something around that size once, but can't come up with it again.
