    2038r wheels and tires

    Is it true you could literally take the wheels and tires off a 3038E and put them on a 2038r without clearance problems or adjustments? Not that I want to, or have any intention of doing so, just curious about how close these two tractors are in design.

    When I put the R1’s on mine I looked at that. Not actually switching them but measuring them up side by side. I am not sure of the wheel offset differences but in just diameter, maybe. No way was I going to try to though. It looked like it would be such a tight fit a pebble in the tread would rub through the fuel tank.

    According to the specifications the two tractors use different size wheels and tires (R4), so swapping wheels between the two seems unlikely.

    3038E:
    Industrial front: 25x8.5-14
    Industrial rear: 15.00-19.5

    2038R:
    Industrial front: 23x8.50-14
    Industrial rear: 14-17.5
    2012 2720 -- 200CX Loader -- 54" Quick Attach Snow Blower -- Frontier LR5060 Rake -- Land Pride RB1660 Blade (Hydraulic Angle) -- Artillian 42" Forks -- Ken's Bolt on Grab Hooks -- Fit Rite Hydraulic top-link -- 2013 X500 for mowing duties

    Just a thought- I think raising the tractor with larger diameter tires would gain additional ground clearance but also render the mower deck useless or at least change height settings, if you could even still do the driveover hook-up.

    Change settings, yes, but far from make it useless.

    I cut mine at ~3.5" and the 3ph setting is at 8.
    To hook it up, I have it at 2. That means I could lift the tractor over an inch and still run the deck scraping on the ground.

    Ok point taken, sometimes I exaggerate a little but you get my point.

    There are several tire options between the 41" smaller 30xxE tires and the 36" 203xR tires. Some of them are bound to fit on the stock wheel. If not, there are wheels you can buy and paint, since it appears to be a "standard" lug pattern.

    For example, there's a 39" tire that I think would fit, if it fit on the wheel or if a wheel that fit it would fit the lug pattern. Kubota offers it as an option on their 2650 and 3350 tractors (which are direct competitors to the 2 series).

    There is also a 37+" tire, which is the standard tire on the above mentioned Kubotas. That isn't much larger, but it is larger, and visibly so.

    There are probably quite a few more than would fit on there.
