Auto size wheels were included in design for big tires, more weight and better traction, as well as high ground clearance.
Tractors were furnished with 15 or 16 inch wheels with or  without  tires so you could use old automobile tires for additional savings.
New 6.00x16 claw tread Allstate farmaster  were recommended.
Flat steel wheels with ground gripping lugs  were standard on pre-war handimans  and an option for the  handiman junior.
42# cast iron wheel weights were a $19 option.
'Draw bar pull, in pounds, and traction of ANY tractor on rubber tires can not be more than half  the weight that is put on the wheels' David Bradley engineer
