LOL! You're right, glgrumpy. I told my neighbor this afternoon that all I need now is a small block Chevy mill and I'd be good to go! Maybe put a set of zoomies on it, too! :D Other than the JD yellow wheels, I like the look. I'd still prefer some original Bolens wheels, though.  :anyone:

 

No worries, believe it or not, there's plenty of clearance between the tire and fender (see below). I'm not planning on using these tires for snow removal. I'll just put the originals back on, so I can use the weights and chains.

 

I didn't think I'd have room, but amazingly, I was able to rearrange the shed and barely fit it in without kicking anything else out. The width is now 56-1/2" outer sidewall to outer sidewall and I can barely fit a sheet of paper between the tractor and the adjacent piece of equipment now. I forgot to measure the width before I put the new tires on, but it's probably about 48". :wallbanging:

 

Your PK roller looks awesome with those 31x15's! It looks like it would make a great puller. :thumbs:

 

I know you guys love pictures, so, without further adieu, here ya' go. BTW: There's another shot of my '61 Landy, as well as one of the Rangies in the background.

My Simplicity 4041 is only 54" wide with the 31/15.50/15's, the offset must be more than mine. I gotta measure before I order.

Wow, those are wide! Do you notice any difference in performance? Any loss of power or low end?

Great, let me know.

I measured the offset to be 4" negative. Deep dish!

I haven't noticed any loss of power or low end, so far.

What does the offset measure at the rear? The FF's use a rim with very little rear offset.

 

I've got a brand new rim exactly like the ones in this thread.  If anyone wants it, they can have it for $20.

Hey Rick, did you ever locate any of those factory rims?
