Has anyone here fitted 23 X 10.50-12 tires on a Cub Cadet 123? Will that size tire fit a rim for 23 X 8.50-12s? Would there be any clearance issues with the mower deck using that size of tire and not the 23 X 8.50-12s? Thanks.

I had a set of wider Craftsman rims with 23 1050 tires on my 127 and they fit OK but I had to take the gauge wheels off of the deck on the left side and drill new holes for the bracket.

 

 

What deck is on the 123? Also how wide is your rims? Measure them from Bead to Bead not Lip to Lip.  If your gona use aftermarket tires like the Duro 23X10.50-12 AG tire they are alot narrower and not quite as tall as a standard 23X10.50 Good Year tire.

My CC 123 has a 42" deck. I'm not sure how wide my rims are. It has 23 X 8.50-12 Ags on it right now. I have two new 23 X 10.50-12 Carlisle Turf Savers. We compared the new turfs to the Ags that are already on it and it looks like the 23 X 10.50-12s would interfere with the deck and maybe even the fenders.

Shouldn't change anything in the height department. Won't hit the fenders, but I wouldn't be so sure on them clearing the deck.
