Which Hydro? My 716H uses the same backspacing as my 712S and my 61 Wards. I like to use less backspacing to keep my wheels as close together as possible when pulling. I have made most of my pulling wheels, by cutting them apart with a jigsaw and welding a band around them to make them the correct width. I do all the welding so that it will be inside the tire, and use tubes. I have made both 10.5 and 12 inch wide steel rims. I never used the high dollar aluminum wheels. I have an extra set of 12 inch wide wheels, but I don't want to let them go. They are on a motorcycle engine tractor that my son-in-law is thinking about resurrecting and putting back on the tracks.

I use the Douglas aluminum wheels on both pulling tractors. They are 12 X 12 with a 4/8 offset. The only place that there is a clearance issue is the cone clutch shaft on the BGB (I did not want to cut it off). I had to put a 1/2" spacer on the left side wheel hub to clear the shaft (with cone clutch removed), with Carlisle 26 x 12 x 12 Turf Chief tires. There are no clearance issues with the Firestone lug tires. Front: we use 8" aluminum wheels on the front on both tractors with 4.00 x 8 on "Deuce" and 3.5 x 8 on "Ace". These front wheels came with the hubs (4 bolt)and hub caps. Many pullers use a 6" wheel alum. wheel that comes with a 3 bolt hub. These hub/wheels just slide right on the 3/4" spindle and you use the lock collar from the original wheels. All wheels were bought from Midwest Super Cub.
