You need to ask John Deere whether duals are a problem or not for the axle shafts and for the trans-axle itself. And this applies to anyone who is thinking about putting duals on their tractor.

Beyond the so-called "cool factor", there is no real need for dual tires on a garden tractor. Adding duals to any tractor also adds huge stresses to the axle support bearing and to the axle shafts. You could end up with oil leaks due to the accelerated wear on the axle bushings or you could end up breaking axle shafts from the huge amount of leverage that duals place on them.
