I found this WC with these tires on the and I was wondering if they came from the factory with that kind of tire? I got the picture from an old 2019 Miller catalog.

I think that was what you could get back then. A lot of those old gals were converted to rubber. I never sold any with that tread design, but I can tell you they are a bear to get off. Some have Been on there 60-65 years.

I think we put them on a 1939 WC as a replacement, not positive as that was a long time ago.

My memory is not very good anymore but is seems like tractor tires from Montgomery Wards had tread like that.

When Pop Sold them he really disliked the tire cause the closed center tread did not have any "Bite"  The tire was made by Firestone.  Some time later Firestone went to the tire design similar to Good Year but they curved their tire treads slightly to get around Good Year's design.
If I recall almost all Firestone tires at that timeframe were of that design.
"Chicken Track"  Sounds appropriate
You guys bring back to me some very old memories.
Good Luck!

Thanks for all the replies a’ll.
My cousin also has a John Deere model H manure spreader with that kind of tread on them( it has been holding a barn up for years so I don’t know the traction of it).
