Will the wheels from a Suburban fit on a Walk Behind?

I have an idea for my 575144 tractor.

No.... the hubs are differnt. You would have to find hubs with the same bolt pattern size. I put 16" on a Suburban once, but i had to find hubs from a 135 to make it work out. I dont think the 144 has the big little axil shafts, so you would have to come up with a pr of the small side Suburban hubs.

The 144 does have the big/little axles, it has the non-locking differential in it.

ok so then all you need to do it swap out the hubs and the Sub's wheels will fit. I like the project where stuff dont get distroyed to make something else.

Thanks!! After looking at that 3 wheel cart thing, I got the idea to convert my 144 to a 3 or 4 wheel cart and use front end off of something. The 144 is in really bad shape, but the tranny is ok.
