front tire sizes

Recommended Posts

what is the largest front tire size anyone has put on a Big Ten? I am putting 25" tires on the rear. I think that is 2" larger (1" taller) than stock. The tractor has 4.00/4.80 x 8 tires now.

I'm getting ready to mount a set of 18x9.50x8 tires to use on the front of the loader tractor that I am building. I will be using 26x12x12 tires on the rear. I may even go with duals.

Here's my 7117 with 25x9.50x12 rear and 18x9.50x8 front. It sits level and the seat deck clears the tires with the OEM mounts/hinges. When I put 25" tires on my 712 I had to raise the seat deck. (???) If you put larger diameter tires on the front, you may have clearance problems with steering linkage and frame when turning. [img]/club2/attach/dutch/hi-lift-1.jpg[/img]

Dutch, Did you put the 18x9.50x8 tires on the 6 inch rims that came with the 6.50 front tires? I was debating whether to use a set of those or to widen them a couple of inches.
