late b10 same size front rim as late b12?

Recommended Posts

Does late b10 and b12 have same front rim?..I know they have different tire sizes... Sometimes different sized tires fit on same rim, not something I'd do on a road worthy vehicle though..my b10 needs a new front tire/tube,.. looking to see if I'm locked in at getting the 4.80x8 tire size. Thanks alot

The wider size is compatible with the original axle if you get a simplicity/allis rim that is made for the width of tire. The standard 16x6.50 rim has a wider bearing spacing than the S-AC variation. I had to do a lot of rework to make the Deere version fit on my B-10 chassis. It worked, but the OEM is a lot easier. Which specific variation are you mounting to? The early B steering box ratio is pretty hard when turning the wide tires(Worth it in handling but not the easiest). Later versions have a bit more advantage in the gearing.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
