The FORD 16" front rim will take a 5.50 x 16; 6.0 x 16; or 6.5 x 16 tire size. I've used MILLER TIRE for many years and get great service and decent prices, including shipping. If you live in residential and/or rural area, you can save a lot on shipping by having the tires shipped directly to a business. I have them sent to my local Firestone AG Tire Dealer and they mount them as well. I suggest investing in new tubes while you're at it too. Kelly-Springfield was never an OEM supplier of tires to FORD so someone replaced the originals at one time, but not an issue. ARMSTRONG and SEARS were also good aftermarket suppliers back when. Today all tires, like just about most everything else, are made in China. My original repop FIRESTONE GUIDE GRIP style 16" front tires I purchased back in 20002 were made in Brazil. Back then China wasn't the biggie they are today and so most tractor parts came from Brazil or India. her is no letter 'C' in the South American alphabet so the embedded text on the tires reads "TRATOR TIRE".
