I just bought a ford 100 and the tires are in against the fenders, I am wondering if it gets a special wheel or what's going on here. It still has 8.5" tires on and the valve stem is out.

Welcome to the forum. Can you take the wheels off and turn them around?

The wheels are reversible, the hubs are also adjustable in and out to fine tune the spacing.  If you want to use it with the aluminum mowing deck they need to be nearly touching the fenders to clear the deck, if you're not worried about that then just flip 'em around and you should be good to go.

I flipped them around and then its too wide for the snow blower. I will look at adjusting the hubs.
Thanks

I keep mine on the narrow setting. As you can see here

The wheels sit VERY close to the fenders but they don't touch often or there would be more paint missing.
My rear hubs were also very worn, allowing the wheels to wobble so I think that has something to do with the intermittent rubbing. Part of why it's all torn apart currently.

Do you just slide the hub out or can you flip them over? How far can you slide them? That is about what my fenders look like. I want to run chains.

As long as the set screws still bite on the axle shaft and the woodruff key is fully inside the hub you'll be fine, I don't have any actual measurements to help you with tho. Edit: can you post some pics of what you're working with so we can try to help further?
