I meant like the profile. They have a very short length on the sidewall. I didnt look real close, but it looked to have a bigger wheel, but same 22" tire, felt alot rougher riding than the BB and I figured that was the reason... Kinda like a 22" wheel on a car has a skinny side wall, but same car with same size tire on a 16" wheel will ride much better. Also if the dealers will let you drive both around the 2 mowers drive quite a bit different. The bb has smoother controls, and the bota is more responsive. Some like one or the other better...
