[ATTACH=CONFIG]3811[/ATTACH]This is my Ford. It is a 1968 140. t came from the factory this color. I haven't been able to find out why. It needs a lot of work and my JDs seem to be more important. [ATTACH=CONFIG]3813[/ATTACH] Don

I can't see your pics unless while typing a reply, or if I go into edit. Maybe if I reply then they will show. Lets try.

It worked. Don't look at the Bolens in the background. It is a 11hp XL. Not mine. I'm rebuilding the engine for a neighbor.:madhop:

Mowing the bank yesterday on my JD F935 front mower, it appears I lost the sidewall in one of them. They were older tires when I mounted them on the John's rims. Being kinda broke at the moment, I decided to rob the tires off the Ford LGT165 and put them on the John. The John MUST have ags to mow where I do, and the Ford is more a less a toy at the moment. The ags on the Ford are in good condition, so will last a long time on the John. I have a like brand new pair of 26x12x12 aggressive turfs I'm gonna mount onto the Ford's rims. I think it's actually gonna look better with the wide turfs than the ag tires. We'll see sometime within a week, or whenever I can get around to changing the tires. Will for sure post pics of the turfs on the Ford.

I was sure draggy tired & said I wasn't doing anything this evening....but I got bored. Went out & got all the tires changed out. The ags on the JD, and the big turfs on the Ford. I turned the rims around, as these tires stick out more & the Ford took a wide area to park. Can't use the weights on it now, but don't need them anyway at the moment. Here's a couple pics of the Ford.

Thanks for a picture of it with the 26x12x12's.. I have been toying with the idea of putting that size ags on my ford since it doesn't get used to mow.

PLENTY of room for 26x12x12 ags on these with those high placed fenders. If not using a belly deck, there's NO problems. I think they look better with bigger tires to fill in some of that space. I think they'd look even better with 18x8.50x8's up front along with the larger rears.
