Would the rims from a john Deere zero turn fit onto a Gt20? Do the brakes require special rims? Photos of The JD rims are attached.

Is that an Ariens GT20?  if so they should fit.  Maybe you should measure the bolt spacing and center hole of each first to be sure.

Yes it is an Ariens Gt2O. Currently the tractor has 10.5 wide tires. The JD tires are 8.5. Which one would give better traction?

the 10.5 is a bigger footprint....for traction I would use ag tires instead of turf tires

The 8.5 will give you more weight per surface area. If it gives more traction depends on where you are running it. I tried it one winter in snow to go with a narrower tire. I didn't like it and went back to the 10.50

The brake is all contained and doesn't have anything to do with the rim. Should fit fine. Depending on your operation depends on what kind of tires I would suggest. I have both Ag's & turfs for my Ariens, just incase ;)
