    Post Ford 8210 tyre/wheel sizes

    I have recently acquired an 8210 4wd (I think they all were?) and due to transmission problems (differential losing bolts, front axle not transmitting drive, still to investigate) and the fact it does not sit level I wonder if someone has put the wrong wheels on it i.e. too big at the front and too small at the back? Could this cause problems ? What size wheels front and rear should be on a 1982 Ford 8210?

    Thanks, that sounds familiar - I will check what is on it. Do you think the wrong size wheels could cause drive-train damage?

    18.4/38 14.9/28. What size is on it now? If tyre sizes are wrong it will fuck up the 4wd and diff.

    Using dual wheels with damage the diff by overloading it, in fact the ops manual specifically warned against it. Standard tyre spec was 16.9x38 & 13.6x28.

    had one, it came on 18.4 and 14.9. Having the wrong tyres on it could mess up the drivetrain most probably only if it were laden and driven in 4wd on a hard surface though.

    We had one on duals and the diff broke, most probably due to mis use of the diff pedal (my 16yr old brother at time on dung cart) with duals fitted laden

    Great looking tractor though especially underload One of the last tractor built to look like a proper tractor in my opinion. Cant be doing with all these plastics and curves now !

    as said above tyre size 16.9 x 38 and 13.6x28 on early ones and 14.9 x 38 and 18.4 x 38 rears on super q tractors. my q cab one was on 20.8 rears and 16.9s on the front. i then put it on 650/65x 38 rears and 540/65x28 fronts. this worked spot on, looked the part too. do not ever put 24" wheels on the front!!!

    we had a pair of Y reg 8210 where I was working they never worked side by side one had no front axle trouble one was no end of trouble when they had been sold they were parked up ready for collection and it was noticed that they had different sized front wheels on. the one with front axle trouble had bigger wheels but also had had duels fitted at times.Both were as delivered from Ford/dealer. IIRC the larger wheels were the same as a TW15

    my q cab one has 20.8r38 on the rear and 14.9r28 on the front but the fronts are on 13ins rims so its sits level if that makes any sense.

    My super q has 18.4r38 on the rear and 14.9r28 on the front.
    Just finished painting it today
