Ok, this is driving me nuts. I have a Cub Cadet Original that the front tires are junk. Does anyone make the exact replacements? I can't seem to find any.

Millertire.com has some that are really close to original.

Greetings.
What tires and sizes originally equipped an October 1964 IH Cub Cadet 100 from the Louisville, KY factory?
What new tires are best recommended for restoring this tractor vs. for best functionality & quality with today's technology?
I want to use it primarily as a lawn tractor.

My October 1964 Cub Cadet 100 is currently equipped with the following.
FRONT TIRES: Carlisle 16 x 6.50 - 8 NNS (Not For Highway Use) 4-ply rating tubeless (inflate to 28 psi).
REAR TIRES: B.F. Goodrich Turf (traction) 23 x 8.50 - 12 2-ply rating Made in USA F60 4585-2 E15265-2. These tires have been on my tractor since I bought it in 1987.

Thank you!

The tires you have on the front are about as close as you will get to the optional OEM "high floatation" tires and rims. The rear tires are the original optional OEM "high floatation" tires and rims.
