Looking at auction site and found some front wheels off a B-165 Toro/WH tractor for good price. BUT, they look like one side is way bigger than other!  Doesn't say what tires size goes on or size of rim. Looking for some for 16 x 650 x 800 tires and they LOOK about right, cept that size diff?? Kinda looks like there is bead area in farther, yet the rim is bigger and big flange on them. SO....what's the deal on those? some sort of safety rim? or weight attach flange or what?

Early tractors had the 5x8 or what ever. The late ones had the ones you mention. . .  Unless I'm wrong.

Be sure they are WH. I have a pair of  front rims from a Bolens 850. It's the same rim and it's red, but the bearing off set is different.

They are the same OD on each side, it's just the angle he took the photo from that makes them look bigger on one side. he shows both sides in the 2 photos.

Well, I bought them, so hope it was just the odd camera shot. That is what I most suspected. We shall see!  Next will be some tires. I really like those Vedistrom V5 or whatever that are 5 ribs, but not sure why they cost 4 times as much as others???  Probly just be getting the Carlisle turf version at my local store.

You are talking about the V61 5-rib tires... yeah they look great are supposed to do a great job. They are just so dang expensive. I can't believe no one makes knock offs of them.

This is what I put on kubota, cheap and do the job, they just don't get much traction for turning:

The front ends of most all these Garden Tractors are designed to be very light, with not much weight on the front tires (we can usually lift the front of our entire tractor with just one hand).  A plow or snowthrower adds a lot of weight when it's in the up position, but when in the down position, there may be even less weight on the tires than without that implement.

 

• Aggressive Ribbed tires certainly help (or lug tires on the front really help) when turning and to reduce the side-sliding, but WEIGHT will help even more, a lot more.  

• Adding front wheel steel weights or using filled tires (RimGuard);  that additional 10-20# per tire will make a major improvement with steering, especially in the Winter on snow & ice.  

• Some people have wrapped & locked a cycle chain around the front tires, as a center "rib".

• There are front wheel regular tire chains available (the more cross links, the smoother the ride), both in Rubber and in Steel.

Well...crap!  These wheels came today and in pretty small box!  First thought only One in that box, but opened and had two......very small wheels!  Darn listing never gave size and he never got back to me on what they were when I asked. Now, I have two 3.5" wide x 6" wheels I can't use. Anyone need small ones for a puller or ??? Wheels are real nice shape, just too small. Still seem to be 3/4" spindle size wbearings.   Guess I'll be more careful on next item. I'm bidding on some others with tires now, so they have correct size and hope I get those then.
