What's the general rule for buying aftermarket or even OEM wheels, but wider than the originally installed wheels? I have a 2008 eXmark Lazer Z AS with 52" deck. It came with 23 x 9.5x12 tires. I noticed the same mower from the factory comes with 24 x 12.00x12 tires. Is it safe to assume that you could buy those larger (wider) rims and tires and this would fit with no problem on my LAS28KA524 model? I would assume so since the mowers are pretty much identical with a few exceptions. My concern is making sure that a new wider rim/tire combo does not interfere with the deck, hydro hoses frame or anything else. I can see there's plenty of extra room for wider rims and tires by visually inspecting the area around the existing 23 x 9.5x12 tires. Here's an example of a guy selling aftermarket rims but he's specifically mentioning it's for models with a 60" or larger deck. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-CUSTOM-WHEE...emQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item1c07b7da70 My guess is that these would fit fine on my mower, but I want to make sure. I'm not buying these but I'm interested in the whole idea of wider wheels/tires in general and I need some input on what to look for and how to know they'll fit. I 'could' go to the dealer and buy the larger wheels from them but of course that's going to be more expensive. Thanks!
