I need some Wheel Horse rear wheels for a project i am doing. I had found 2 that are 12x7 and they have a back set of 1 1/4" (hub face to edge of wheel).

My question is did wheel horse make a 12x8 wheel like that?
And if so what models do I look for to get 4 of those? If they didn't make a 8" wheels with the 1 1/4" back set I need another set of 7".

All help appreciated
Thanks
Jeff

Rim sizes available are 12x5, 12x7, and 12x8.5, 12x10, and 12x12. Cub Cadet used the 12x8.5 with a shallow backspace, only place to find those. the 12x10 and 12x12 are on ebay for pulling tractors. Your best bet is 12x7 rims, but what are you building and tire size you want??

I am actually flexable on tire size at this point. I am leaning toward 23 x 10.50s now. I don't think I will have room for 26 x 12s I am building an articulated GT. with the differentials I have I need the shallow back spacing for clearance with out making spacers. I could use the CC wheels with a small spacer and have 8.5" wheels.

CC rims of that size are just about impossible to find but they are on the larger models, best rim to keep a straight sidewall on a 23x10.50-12. However, 12x7's will fit those tires just fine. Good luck with the project.

One of the things I discovered while searching for a set of 12" wheels for my Wheel Horse 312-8, is that the back set of the hub is different from brand to brand.
