Nice Tractor and rake ......Thanks for the picture......maybe it's just me but I always thought my 7 looked higher in the front than the rear thats why Im thinking of going with a little smaller front tires than the stock size....your tractor looks pretty level in the picture

Also, the manufacturer, might be helpful.

As we've seen before, different builders tires, are not the same actual size.

Yeah that may very well be it .....the factory tires may be shorter than the ones I have, Dad has a  7  with factory tires I could take one off of it and check it next to mine.      ( Thanks for the idea IamSherwood )

I went out this am before the snow flies, the front tire on the left side of the parts tractor is a goodyear  15x6-6 WP_20141115_001.JPG WP_20141115_002.JPG . The front tire on the right side is a Super trac size 15x6.5-6. I am sure the goodyear is an original tire for the front end. Hope this helps.  Ted
