Hello. I was digging through a box of parts I got with my 1050 and found this bag that has front tire chains in it. I was wondering if anyone knows if the part number on the bag is a Bolens part number?Thanks Steve......

That does not look like a Bolens part number.

4.80/4.00-8 chains should not fit the front tires of a Bolens 1050, as the correct front tires are
16-6.50x8.

I never heard of putting chains on front tires of a rear-wheel drive Bolens tractor, and I can't think of any scenario where they would be beneficial.

Wish I could help you on the part number, can't though. I CAN say that those are SIZED correctly for original equipment Gravely convertible tires. Gravelys in snow country frequently have chains for snow pushin and blowing.
