I started to work on a 1965 John Deere 110 that I have had for a while. I put 4.00x8 tri ribs on the front. The narrow rims for the John Deere 110's are hard to find and usually expensive if you do find them. I had a pair of narrow rims from an Allis Chalmers parts tractor so I decided to try to make them work. The Allis Chalmers rims have a little less distance between the bearings so you need to put a 3/8 inch spacer on the spindle before you mount the rims. If you don't the end of the spindle sticks out enough that you can not get the hub caps back on. With the spacers in place they work like a dream..
For the back rims and tires I used 6.70x15 ag tires mounted on Dodge Caravan spare tire rims. The Dodge rims are a narrow 15 inch rim with the correct 5 x 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. You need to torch out a little of the center flange on the Dodge rims but they bolt right up.
The 6.70x15 ag tires are 28 inches tall so I had to raise the fenders up by 3 inches to clear the tires. I used 4 inch long pieces of strap iron and drilled holes 3 inches on center to raise the fenders.
I am going to try this tractor out at our plow days coming up. I might leave this one as is, I kind of like the way it looks. If the moding bug bites again it may be in the running for one of my narrow front conversions.
Here are some pics of what it looks like now.

Good looking tire combo. The fender radius matches those ag's great too.

I like the look. I have one question. I see you have no pic of the left side, yet you have a wheel weight on that side for plowing. Yes I am observant, and do want to see what wheel weight you are using with those rims. Good job yet again.
