I'm sure many people will not like how my 110 will turn out with big tires and a upright exhaust . But when I go to tractor shows I am always looking for the unusual. The creative guy who uses his imagination to try something new. Row after row of original garden tractors and big tractors that look exactly the same is nice but when I spot the one custom tractor my camera comes out and I get excited. I don't always love the look but I do love the fact these people give us a variety.


Don, I agree with your sentiments. I enjoy looking at nice stock refurbished vehicles, but a nice custom job turns lots of heads, including mine. I like the VW and I know a fella Who would not. To each his own.

Nice set of tires. Can't wait to see the 110.

Customize away Don, I like those type of projects. I customize even a rare tractor, but rarely irreversible mods.

Thanks , things would get pretty boring if everyone did exactly the same thing, ha,ha. This morning I mounted the new tires to the 110 with the stock fender mounts. I was surprised they would fit at all or the tires would even turn but they did. I will raise them 1.5 to 2 inches. I love these big tires on it and now i can decide to order the front lug tires on Monday. By next weekend I should have the first dozen parts sanded and painted and the new front tires on.

I have bought 2 tri rib front tires for my Ford 100, and looking to get ag tires for thje rear . Since this is a play toy I am gonig to stay with the narrow tires so it will fit in the enclosed trailer setting beside my Sears GT 18 that has wide tires on it, as I haul them to the show.I do like the looks of the wider tire though.

That looks great! I would have bought ags for the 129 if they weren't so expensive. I love the look and performance. I can't wait to see the finished product!

I worked yesterday on the first fender bracket to raise it up 2 inches. Now it looks much better and I cut a 2 inch corner out of the rear of the running board for clearance of the inside lug . Now it rolls around with plenty of room. Today I will get going building the second fender bracket.

That looks great, Don. I hear you on all stock stuff. I do mine a bit different just to please me. That is going to be one tough looking tractor.

Thanks , I love the look of garden tractor pullers so this is the look I am after but just to play on in the backyard and maybe drive in a parade with a cute trailer with my grandson.

Don Those tires look great!! It makes me think of a 110 I saw somewhere on the internet(can't remember where).
It had the 26X12X12's on the rear and Tires about a foot wide on the front. The owner said it was not the least bit tippy.
I don't remember the size of the front tires, but found them listed for turf equipment and were well over $100 ea.
