Hi all, i really like the look of bar tires on gts and was thinking of putting some on my wh 416, it has 23-10-12 on it now but i like the look of the 23-12-12, would they fit on the stock rim or make the tire taller and look out of place? and if i need bigger rims where do i get them? i love the chrome and polished aluminum ones, thanks for any info

Not sure about fitting. You can check with Miller Tire in Ohio for tires and I've heard that places that customize and sell parts for golf carts can get the wheels. Good Luck.

Putting a 12" tire on a 10" rim is not a problem... but you need to make sure the tire won't rub on anything.

The current wheel for the 10.5" tire is probably 8.5" wide.  Usually 12" wide tires would mount on a 10.5" wheel.

As far as I know, there isn't a 23x12.00-12 tire.  To get a 12" wide tire you have to jump up to a 26x12.00-12.  I'm not a WH guy so someone else will have to comment on whether a 26x12.00 will actually fit your tractor.
