I finely got the tri ribs on the front of my LGT165 and it now thinks its a big tractor, also took the old tires off it and put them on my trailer that I rebuilt and they both look tough to me like they have changed their attitude and are ready to go show there stuff at the Fla Flywheelers show next week. The first photo is the old tire on the tractor, next is the  tri rib, 3&4 are the narrow tires and 5&6 are the wide tires,they fill out the homemade fenders better.

Tractor looks good with those on there. What wheels did you use for the Tri-Ribs?

Looks good. Those Tri-Ribs do make a GT look grown up.

I have a set on a MF Exec. Gives it a total different "attitude". :thumbs:

Very nice! That's about the nicest trailer I've ever seen and the wider rubber makes it look ready for business!

Tractor and trailer look great.  Now you are going to make the wife very unhappy. Really like the change in the looks of the Ford and I'm going to be needing 6 sets of the tri ribs as I complete each G.T.

Tractor looks good with those on there. What wheels did you use for the Tri-Ribs?

I used the wheels that came with the tractor, they are a little wider then what are on my Ford 100, but not as wide as the Sears GT 18. the 400x8 tires look nice on there. I bought a pair of the multi ribs and they are to wide so they will go on the GT 18 someday
