I can't find what m/m (rather than %) means but I did find this site. Can't find your Fiat on there but maybe a phone call would help, or maybe not.

Kirkby Tyres looks the better choice even if they are in Speke rather than Kirkby.

Ah, good point Glen - yes, it is 3.5 ton, so heavier than most tractors that size.
More to this than immediately meets the eye - glad I ‘asked the grown -ups’ now
