Ok, here is a pic I need to know what wide rims we can use on these tractors, im looking to use 23x10.5x12 tires but I am not sure what garden tractor rims I can use. Im not looking to use an automotive rim, thanks for your help.

Looks like a standard 12x7 Sears or Wheel Horse rim with 23x10.50-12 ags.

This is what I thought I know as a fact that the lug holes would have to be drilled out thats not a problem. Also the alignment hole that is ion the drums would have to be removed. Im just wondering what the lug pattern is on these rims I think the stock panzer rims are 5x4.5.

Something like this should work as the offset it the back is not to much and should keep the tires from rubbing.If you need a measurment from them i can get that info for you.

I hope its this easy im going to give my Wheel Horse buddy a camm in the am ill see if he has a set of wheels i can measure to see is they will fit. I just like that way the tractor looks with the wide wheels.

The WH and Sears use a 5 on 4.5" bolt batten with a 3-1/8" center hole. Bascally all the same.

The Sears rims will work on them and like you said the bolt holes will need to be drilled out to 9/16". Ford Ranger , and a bunch of others, will work on the big Panzers.

Kenny, I just picked two common brands as I was tired when I posted. Just about any brand would work.
