    Can I put the bigger front and rear tires from a 48 Superduty on a 48 Fastrack? I can't hardly justify the extra $1000 for the SD but would really like the bigger tires for my hills, uneven terrain, and rought ground. From what I've found so far, the frame and deck is the same. So I assume the wheels should just swap? If so how much would the set of larger wheels/tires cost? Could I just pay the difference when purchasing a new 48 Fastrack? If this is not an option, would I be better off with the 42 SD or the 48 Fastrack for about the same price? Again my main concern is handling on slopes not so much width of cut. My yard is only 1-1.5 acres. Thanks,
    Zweit

    I replied to your email also...
    The larger tires will fit.
    The hydros are different though, they are geared differed for the larger tires on the FasTrak SD.
    As far as pricing, you would have to check with a dealer, they are considered parts and I dont have parts pricing.
