Thank you. Im not sure those will fit though. I dont really understand what each number refers too, nor do i know whether i can put a different size tire on the rims that i have. Btw, what sets these tires apart from the tru powers?

traction !! The Duros don't slip as easily as the true powers ,and I  think it could be due to the angle /curve of the bars. The duro is not as steep , say 35degrees compaired to 45 degrees of the tru-powers and the price is WAY better !!

For a garden tractor tire for example 23 x 10.50 -12

23" = tire height
10.50 = tire width ( not the same as tread width) Tread width is usually a bit narrower depending on the tire.
12 = rim diameter.

Note that rim diameter is measured at the bead. rim widths affect tire sizes as well, a too wide a tire on a narrow rim will cause issues. as will a narrow tire on a wide rim. For my lgt 100 I want to go to a 12" wide tire.

You can usually go up or down an inch or two in tire height, and tire width, but never on rim diameter. Actually tire height is pretty much whatever you need.

all measurements are in inches

Ha, sort of a pun... Steer... Tires... Oh never mind. LOL

Nice tractor. I have one just like it, and I just picked up a tiller for it. I'm missing the same 2 springs that it looks like you need as well. I would bet they are for rebound, so it doesn't bounce the tractor so much. My real problem is that I'm missing the long bar that lets the tractor lift the tiller. If I could get you to make me a drawing of yours, I can make one.

Thanks,

Chuck
