Old NH baler tyre
« on: July 15, 2019, 04:29:21 pm »
Hi, I'm a newbie on here... :wave:
I have an old New Holland 377 baler....it's great, runs like clockwork but I need new tyres.....one side is ok and available but the other side is an 8.50 x 12 which people tell me is no longer made.....after lots of phoning around talking to various people and scouring ebay I've hit the buffers....
Can anyone help or suggest a solution?

Just take it to tyre fitter and ask for a 12” tyre and tube to fit.
If you want a 8.5 x 12  be prepared to pay over a hundred pounds.
12” budget tyre will do just as well.

Ps don’t bother getting  it  balanced!,

I needed a new tyre for my NH 276 (can't remember the size).  Visited a few tyre places before one said "leave it with me I'll find something".  A few day later I had an old trye off a campervan fitted.  More or less the right size with a few mm of tread (I had told the guy it will only ever drive at 5mph on a field) and I was only charged £15 for fitting it (tyre was free).

You just need something with close to the right diameter (and the correct rim size).
