I’m trying to restore my grandfathers old 252-H to use around my property. The tires are shot and the rims aren’t too far behind. Anyone have any recommendations for rims and tires that would fit well on it?
right now it has 22 x 7.50 - 12 on the back and 15 x 6 - 6 on the front.
I just bought some Carlisle Turfmaster 24x12-12 rear tires to replace the 23x8.50-12 tires I have on there now. I was wondering which rims I should buy to fit these bigger tires. The charts say an 8.50 width rim but should the offset stay the same or does it need to change? Any other dimensions I should be concerned about?
Thanks in advance.
Hope everyone is healthy and well!

I decided I wanted a small wagon to pull behind my horse. Started out with hubs and spindles from a snowmobile trailer. I should have taken pictures of earlier steps, but I’m more than happy to supply measurements and close up pictures if anyone wants them. More pictures to come..
I'm thinking about going with 7.50 tires on the front with the 8" stock rims. I mow in a wet area and am thinking if I increase the surface area, I'll be less likely to sink. I already went wider in the rear, which seems to work well. I'm also running lower pressures all around.
My main concern is if the slightly wider tires will clear the mower deck when I make tight turns. As it is, the 6.50 clears only by about an inch.
I'd like to go with the 7.50 Carlisle Turf Masters, the mounted width is 7". Currently I am running the stock tires, which are Turf Savers, and according to Carlisle, the mounted width is 6.6".
I guess if that's the case, it may not make much difference in surface area, and I would be risking rubbing the tires on the deck. I have a 42" deck.
If anyone is using (or knows for sure if) 7.50 Turf Masters on an 8" wheel with a 42" deck on a 416-8, please let me know how well it works. Obviously
I can't risk "tire rub".
I also welcome any other suggestions for mowing wet ground. Thanks in advance.

Well Monday had a great day rounding up some attachments. Now to clean them up, paint, get new badges from the vinyl guy. Just a few projects for winter and maybe summer we see how it goes. Just not sure which I'm going to do first. Almost forgot the new addition to the heard.
