_______________________________________________Eric, you wil need to add about 1 & 1/2" spacers to the rear housing and frame when you assy again. Normal tires are 23x10.5x12Jerrry NW Ohio----- Original Message -----I just put 26x12X12 tires on my E-15. I needed to put spacers on the axles (1.75 inches) to increase the height to clear the fenders. I also had to put 1.5 inch spacers between the hub and the wheel to gain clearance on the side of the tire. This changed the pitch of the tractor. Shifter would not work correctly as it rubbed on the metal on the frame. Had to enlarge the hole with a grinder. Next i had to extend the strap that attaches the frame to the transaxle. As the frame had been raised by at least 1.75 inches the strap that keeps the transaxle from twisting had to be lengthen. With all this done I found that the pitch created from the larger rear tires caused the tractor to slope towards the front. This affected the front mower. Lift would not lift the mower high enough to clear properly. I then changed the front tires to 18.50 X 8. This leveled the tractor. Would I do it again. NO. I do not believe that the increase in tires size helped for all the trouble. I would go with the original 23X10.50x12 TIRES.Dan ChildressFrom: Eric AdamsTo: ET mailing listSent: Friday, May 04, 2007 10:06 AMSubject: (ET) What size rear tires will fit?My local classifieds have a pair of 26x12x12 ag lug tires with wheels for sale.
