Jess, I have been looking for 3 years and haven't found any yet. It's either Turfs or Skid-Steer tires.
I haven't looked lately but I doubt you'd find turfs in the actual 27/9.50x15 size anymore. Carlisle dropped that size several years back. You can find 8.50 and 10.50 wide but no 9.50. I picked up a new set a couple of years ago when I got a tip from a fellow forum member. A tire surplus website had some. Once word got out he sold out quick.

Never tried putting the 10.5 on a 990 rim, but the 990 rims are only 7.5 inches wide, it may pull in pretty hard to use a 10.5 or 12.5, at the very least it will make them stand taller and fender clearance may become an issue.

OK , how about changing the 4 lug hubs out for a set of the 5 lug hubs that some of the MTD's use like the fifteen hundreds ?
Are the 5 lug hubs and 4 lug hubs interchangeable ?
I know the axle shaft on my 990 is 1 1/8 " is the one on the Fifteen Hundred the same ?
The reason I ask is , I have a real nice set of Goodyear 26X12X12 tires on 5 lug cub 982 SGT rims , and when I compared them to the height of the 27X7.50X15's that came on the 990 and they are real close in height .
TIA , Jess

Your going to need 1 1/8" hubs.The gear driven Twelve/Fourteen/Fifteen hundred GTs use 1" split hubs.
Joe has a set of 1 1/8" hubs for sale on ebay cheap.I've seen other people selling them for $35-45 a piece plus shipping.
These were mine I traded him + a couple bucks for a set of 1" split hubs for my Fourteen hundred.

I think I would switch the hubs out to 5 bolt & go with 26x12x12's.

How sure are you that 1500 hubs are 1 inch ? The reason I ask is I just bought a set off epay .
I asked the seller before the auction ended what size axle hub they were and he said he'd check and get back to me , but he didn't before the auction ended , and right before the auction ended I bought them .
When I paid for them immediately after the auction ended , I sent him another message explaining that they had to be 1 1/8 inches or I couldn't use them .
Its three days later , they've been shipped and he still hasn't responded .
I just sent him another email again asking if he checked them before he shippedt them , I'm still waiting for an answer .
My question is , When they get here and they are the wrong size , do I have the right to be pissed ?

Is the 1500 a Hydro or 4 speed? They made them with Both.
I'm 100% positive that the Gear driven MTD 1000,1200,1400,1500,1600 use 1" hubs.The Hydros all use 1 1/8".
If it's a Hydro Fifteen Hundred the hubs will fit,but all of the hydro Fifteen Hundreds that I've seen have the 4 lug 15" rims.
I have an original sales brochure complete with Optional attachment list for the 1400,1500,1600 and early 990.I have to get it scanned once I piece the paper back together.It's in really rough condition. Some Retailers did offer a 1500 Hydro with or without the "Optional" 12" wheels with 12" wheel weights and 12" tire chains.So there are a few out there with 12" wheels and 5 lug 1 1/8" hubs.
I think I would of waited for a response.Most items on Ebay if they are not Sold will get Relisted.
If you got them off of JoesOutdoorPower and they turn out to be the wrong ones Just send him an Email and calmly explain to him your dilemma,He is a good fella and I'm sure you 2 can get it figured out.

Well I guess I'm naive enough to think that if someone tells you they're gonna do something that they will , and will do the right thing when they know that something they are selling you isn't going to work .
And if I waited for him to respond it probably be around Christmas .
Your right about stuff usually being relisted , but I can think of two times that i forgot to bid on an item and it didn't get relisted .
And one other time I email a guy to please relist an Item , and he did but at a higher Buy it now price .
It really leaves a bad taste in your mouth , to have a seller take advantage of you like that , I ended up not buying it , just for the principle of it.
No these hubs aren't coming from Joe Hemmi , I've never had any problem with his stuff , and I've bought a ton of stuff from him .
These are coming from someone I've never bought from before .
End of Rant .

I would love to see the brochure where they used 12 in. rims on the hydro's ,never seen that before. I wonder if the front spindles were 990 spindles or gear drive ? there is a difference in height because of the larger back wheels. That's what makes this stuff interesting, finding out new info.

My bush hog HD-12 came with 15" on back and 12" on the front.....another option for the same tractor (Georges are this way) were 26 x 12 x 12 on back and 20 x 8 x 10 on front........

If I can figure out why my darn scanner is scanning everything so blurry I'll stick it in the manuals.I've been trying to figure it out since I got in last evening.

That Eaton/ peerless hydro rear was used by other manufacturers , I know my Massey 1650 and some of the sears and of course the jacobsen gt hydro's , don't know if they are all 1 1/8 shaft ,but they are all 5 bolt 12in rims.
