Are those mounted on the stock rims? Mine has 8.5 on the rear, will 10.5 fit


Yep, stock.
WVBuzz told me the deestones run just a little undersized & he was right. The ACTUAL specs for the 10.5" tires is either 9.6" or 9.75" wide. The original tires on these rims were 8.5" Went on fine & don't look "puffy" or anything.

Uh thatt would be WVBuzz, and I am right here now lol. The Gt tire market is sorta screwy, and the two best brands for width is Duro and Carlisle, they are closest to spec. The Duro tires seem to run a little short but they are about half the price of the Carlisle on average. There is nothing wrong with Deestone except they run narrow side, the height is right though. So it is a trade off, but preferable the order of whiche to shop is Carlisle, Duro, Deestone (one size bigger if you do). It is all about money though. Tri ribs go with Deestones, they are sized right in that size.

No way you'll get those 26x12x12's on a MF12. That pic I put up is a MF14.

23" ag's will work.

Well, you should take a peek at mine then. The rears are the narrow 8.5 Deestones with the 8 x 4.80 Deestone front tri-ribs. The front rims are custom narrowed in my shop to fit the narrow tires, but you can fit them on a good set of trailer rims too. The narrower AG's run closer to the correct size than the wide ones from what I understand.

Here is a good photo to compare the 23 x 8.5 x 12 Deestones (The "small" AG, is the one that has not been mounted. They really fool you when you first get them!

so correct me if I'm wrong, the only way to fit 4x8 tri ribs on a mf10 is to narrow the rims?

I believe you do have the either narrow the rims or find narrow rims. If you would happen to be able to get the narrow tri-ribs to seat and hold air they would look a little funny. I am not 100% on this though but from what I remember seeing before that was the general consensus.

There were 2 rim widths, the 4" and the 6", I believe. Found a set of the narrow ones for Ryan's tractor. People more talented than I have cut rims down to the narrow width.
