Anyone have an old (mid to late 1990s year model) GT1846 sitting around with good wheels/tires? I might be getting one in good shape except the current owner torched the rear wheels to get them off so he could install tubes....... Starts and runs well.

S'plain the torching off??  Off the axles? Wheel rim?  If rim, what was he thinking was gonna hold tire and new tubes in with? Sounds like poor decision for sure. Do these just slip on the axle shaft or use 5 bolt mount on hubs?  Tractor catalogs have fronts for tractors that are sometimes same as rears on GT's. Have to watch bolt patterns and width.

I think there were slip on with 18x8.50 x8 tires  or 18x9.50x8 on them I think I have a set if you are ever close I think a John Deere 60 or 70 rims are close also.

Sorry, slide on hugs. He torched the wheel or rim off the welded on hub. Destroyed it. Don't ask me what he was thinking. After he cut the wheel free from the hub he pulled the hub off the axle. I think the tire was something like 20x12.5x8 or so. I'm not opposed to using different wheels and bolt on type hubs if the fit. I'll even modify the hubs if I need to as long as it will work.

I have a 1994 Yard Man 1846. It has 12" rear wheels on it. It still runs and mows but is getting worn pretty bad. I still use it and it's been one of the best investments I've ever made. Sorry not for sale. Just thought I'd let you know about the wheel size. I'd buy another one if I could find one in good shape.
