so on my allis chalmers 310 i have turf tires, carlisle turf savers to be exact:puke2: and i want ags, so i seen these online GOODYEAR POWER TORQUE but to get good width id need duallies, and narrower rims, i have a set of 9 inch wide 12" tall rims but for 6-12's, there too wide right? so does anyone know where i can get 4 narrow 12" rims and a good dually kit that i can still load weights on? because i plan to use this tractor for plowing and making a nice ripper tooth for the back.

I would highly recommend just getting 23x10.50-12 Carlisle Tru Powers and mount them on your stock rims. In the end you will have less money in them because four 6-12 ags will be close to 300 dollars not including rims and 100 dollar dual kit possibly. The Tru Powers in 23x10.50-12 will be around 200 dollars and give decent width and still fit in a 10 inch plowing furrow.

i hate carlisles though, i resent them. ive got some 26 goodyears and i tear through anything in them. to me goodyears are real american tires while carlisles are lawn mower tires.

Fair enough. To me either Goodyear or Carlisle are good and essentially a toss up (depends on which one I find a better price on when shopping). I happen to buy lots of tires (more than I need) and I budget about 400 dollars per tractor just for tires lol. I am just saying go with wide tires over dual narrow tires, cheaper and better result in the end (unless you really love duals).

ive never tried duallies but since im gonna make a ripper i want as much surface area as i can get, 26's wont fit and these tries look promising. if some of my ebay items dont sell for alot then i might have to chain up the turfs for the winter, but i can buy atleast 1 set of tires right now.

I see, if you are dead set on dual 6-12s than the rims you will need are 5"x12" with 5x4.5" bolt circle and the dual wheel spacers are 50 bucks for high pressure water pipe spacers (Miller Tire) or for about 100 dollars a guy sells the 7 inch wide spacers that bolt the the hub for GTs (He uses box tubing between flanges).

i can get some high pressure water pipe in 12 13 or 14" whichever would be appropriate. then id get long enough carriage bolts where i could put dual wheel weights on each side.

Ok, then go high pressure water pipe route, just get it cut straight, or you'll be sorry.

Band saw isn't going to do it well enough I don't think, not in that size anyway. If I were you I would look for a waterjet cutter.

At least I think one of those would work, you might want to ask and see if it will do what you want before you rent it.

Your not going to find to many garden tractors with 24" rims. Carlisle is a good tire and so is Goodyear.
That's kind of like a Chevy man saying he hates Fords or that all Dodges are junk.
Emotion shouldn't really play a part in your purchase decision.
