    Needless to say the tires are working out just fine.
    Stock tires are HISTORY!

    OK....Looks awful LARGE and HEAVY.? No?

    Weight up front like that will hurt rear traction more than you think.

    Plus, doesn't it get in the way of visibility and trimmability?

    Did you end up going wider or taller than stock size? Did you have to re-level the deck?

    My Dad wen with them on his 318 and in ended up being a shorter overall tire than a same sized turf tread.

    The Z-Stand comes standard on the larger mowers.

    Stock tires were 23 x 9.5 x 12
    These are 23 x 10.5 x 12

    No problem with clearance.
    They do ride a bit harder though.

    i had a set of mudders like that on a kubota, i was doing a lot of turf damage if the ground was wet. I swapped them back to "regular" turf tires.
