    35 inches on the dot. Actually, I still have a tiny bit of trim edge on the left but the tire overhangs the deck slightly on the right. I never trim with the right side of the mower anyway.

    Would you [or anyone] happen to know the width of these rims? Are they 5-1/2"? What I would like to do is have these tires mounted on another set of rims, and just change the entire wheel. And I could have a set of 'spares' if need be. Can you help? Thx.

    Just wanted to give an update. I purchased the 20x10x10 tires; and had these tires mounted on new 6" wide rims [pictures attached]. These rims are offset more to the outside, so the out to out in the rear is about 37-1/2". I can easily change the back tires to put the stock wheels back on if I need to get through a narrow gate. For what I do now, this setup is just fine.

    The 6" rims have the center mounting plate exactly in the middle, so the clearance between the new tires and the frame is about the same as the stock tires. I may tweek some more in the future with my setup.

    Big thanks to clear difference and normmie for all of the help and advice. I really love this machine.

    That outta give you a little more hill stability.If your not having any any issues with getting into gate's then your in tall cotton.I would have issue's with some of my gate's so it's a no go for me on the wider wheels .Btw where did you get the rims and how much were they .Figured someone on here would like to know.The only thing I would have done to the wheel's if they were mine would have been to paint them grey before mounting the tires.But that's me.Thank's for the pics and info.

    Norm, I bought the wheels same place as the tires, Brutt Specialty Tires

    http://brutttires.stores.yahoo.net/

    They are not listed on their website, so I e-mailed them to ask about rims and they told me they sold them. The 6" wide rims were $25 each. They are very helpful at this site. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. [Just so everyone knows, the stock rims are 5-1/2"].

    I was in such a hurry to try the new wheels, didn't even think of the color difference. I can always paint them at a later date. With my floor jack, and impact wrench, I can change the wheels in about 5 minutes. Not NASCAR speed, but plenty fast enough for me :)

    Thanks again for all the help. This is fun.

    Man, those lawns look really nice. Hard to believe that you discharge and not mulch. No sign of grass clippings.

    I see you bought a new Stihl blower. I was thinking of this one or the similar Shindaiwa? Did you give any thought to the Shindaiwa?

    This is really nitpicky - but you can turn that remote air filter so it faces straight up. I think it looks better. I plan on painting my rims gravely red if I can ever find the time.
