That is strange. I always saw they needed to be mounted on wider rims? I would also like to see pictures if someone has them on 8.5's

Hello all,
Factory cub cadet super rims are 8.5 wide and all supers have 26x12x12. A 10.5" rim is after market. A 23x10.5 x 12 wouldn't stay on that wide of a rim. For comparison here are a few pictures the super on the left has aftermarket 10.5 wide rims the one on the right is factory 8.5 wide. The last picture is 26x12x12 on factory 8.5 with ags. My simplicity with Carlisle try powers on factory 9.5" wide rims

Take care
Mike

Be careful when comparing tires of different brands.  Not all 26/12/12s are the same.

Carlisle’s tend to be a bit wider then others.  I would use at least a 10+ inch rim with the Carlisle.

 

Here is a pic of tru-power and goodyear both on stock MF 1855 11"  rims.

I know what you mean about tire manufacturers, no two are alike. I was only stating that the factory width of the cub cadet super garden tractor rims are 8.5 " wide. And showing what the 26-12-12 look like on that width rim. And then that I don't think a 23-10.5-12 would fit on a 12"wide rim. Most factory GT rims are 7-8" wide.

I put 26-12X12's on Big Bertha some time back. At first, they were on 7.5" rims (stock for the GTV16). When I repainted it, I widened the wheels to 9.5".

The last pic is the 7.5" wheels.
