A guy I know on another forum scored this rough Simplicity 2012.  No one can figure out the rear wheels on it.  Anyone know what they came off of?

Are they 15inch? If so, maybe they came from an MTD 990.

Front turf wheels from a small Kubota, Massey, Mitsubishi? They had that deep inset whereas most rear 5 bolt garden tractors didn't have the step downs inside that are used to carry a lot more weight. Just a guess, cause there alot of those wheels/rims around because people switch to tri-ribs
