On closer inspection the rims look to have been previously mounted, oh well me thinks they would look great white 🦈

Got the shaker plate all cleaned up today. I was ready to buy some new rubber mounts but they are in great shape!

If those rubber mounts ever wear out, most people go to solid mounts.  There’s a guy who spins aluminum ones, or you could make your own.

Hi guys,

 

l’m contemplating my front tire situation. I have these tri-ribs I could use or the other ribbed tires I jus mounted on stock rims. I also changed my mind on the rears and they will be wide AGs on 520 rims. I’m saving the narrow AG’s for a dual rear set up. So narrow tri’s or wide ribs? Btw if I go with the narrow tri’s I would also probably stay with silver rims. Skinny tri’s with fatty AG’s would have some serious cool factor.....

I like the wide front tires.  I would also recommend swapping out that steering wheel for a 15 inch wheel from a 417-8.  It makes a big difference in how the tractor steers.

I do agree with that...

But for the sake of practicality the wide tires would be more beneficial on soft/wet/smooshy ground. 

 

I'll third the vote of the last 2 gents.
