I'm looking for some good used tires for my 414-8 Wheel Horse. The stock size is 12 X 9.5 X 23 , but I found a nice set of 12 X 10.5 X 23. Will these work with a set of chains on them? It seems like they might rub on the break band or the fan.

Thanks, Smitty

The 23 X 10.50 X 12 are the tires used on a 520. I have two sets of these tires on 520 rims and am using them on my 416-8 (no fan) and my 314-H without any issue. There's at least 2" of clearance for the fan and the brake band for the hydro. No issue.

You should be ok, the 520 uses a wider rim, your 414 has the 7.5 wide rims the 520 has 8.5 wide, the 10.5 tire on the narrow rim will not lay as flat, and will be slightly taller, you should be fine on a 8 speed tractor.
