Gentlemen,

on my 48" metro, i want to put wider tires on than the stock ones now. I realize this may involve a rim change, but im willing to do so. Where do i go shopping to accomplish this... and i really dont want to hear that this cant be done. Thanks for your help.

Mac,

Okay, I'll say it really really quietly.

It can't be done

Seriously. I suppose if you purchase a wheel with the correct offset you may be able to put a wider tire on the machine. The concern is interference with the drive belts.

Thanks

Terry

Ba Humbug. Tell your engineers to get on that for 48" machines.

Just curious Exmark. And i dont say this to be rude and dont mean it as such, but, have you heard from anyone who likes those size tires? I have yet to meet an exmark owner in my neck of the woods that likes em. I think EVERY one of them would rather have bigger tires. I wish all wb's had the same tires on em that the new 60's have. I dont think that a better tire was ever made. THANK YOU EXMARK!

Acute Cut,

I'll pass it along to the product develoment group. If you would like to get a little feel for what the larger drive tires can do for a gear drive machine you might want to demo a Metro HP.

Thanks,

Terry
