    GT 235 Wheels

    I just bought some wheels from someone that aren't john deere rear wheels but they are about 1.5 inches narrower than the john deere factory ones. i bought to put some heap tires on them for winter any issues that you all see doing this or think it will work just fine. Plan on putting chains on them. Yes i did check to make sure they bolt up and they fit fine offset is a little different but seem to fit ok. Thanks in advance

    I had a set of Craftsman rims I used for winter on my old 345. The chains stayed on and wasn't worried about them getting scratched up from the wheel weights going on and off.

    5 on 4.5 is pretty much the standard pattern for garden tractors. There are exceptions like 4 bolt kubotas but 95” of 12” gt wheels are compatible. JD even changed offsets mid production on a few models, so a can of yellow paint makes any rim work.

    A 2” narrower rim should have a 2” narrower tire, but they will fit, and so will the chains, only the shape of the traction patch will move from near square to round or oval. It won’t necessarily decrease or increase in area. Tire selection and air pressure are bigger factors.

    Thanks for the input guys. I went with some carlisle all terrain hdap tires I ordered today from my work. I kept with the same size so we will see how they work coming this winter
