Anybody know if a 20 x 10.00-10 tire will fit on my Bolens 1886-02 front wheels?  It currently mounts 20 x 8.00-10 turf tires that will need replacing, but I'd like to switch to a straight rib design and can only find that size in 10 inch wide tires.

 

Thanks!

I would be afraid that 2 extra inches will make it bulge in the middle unless it is under-inflated, then it may not stay on the rim.

Good point.  I guess I'll keep looking for a set of 8" wide tires that are straight rib.  They're kind of hard to find - actually I have not found any at all.  If anyone has a link to some, I'd appreciate it.
