    I saw a post on a JD Facebook page where someone said they installed a set of 3038E R4 tires and wheels on their 2038R to gain ground clearance. Has anyone heard of this and will the tire sizes/ratios work in 4WD without causing damage?

    Sincerely

    Which group was it? I'd love to see this.

    Also, why do you say "3038E wheels/tires"? Did he actually take it off of an existing tractor? Otherwise, all of the 3E series wheels/tires are the same, except that there are now two options for rear tires...the original 41" and a larger 43", and that's for all three 3E models.

    If the 41" fits on a 2R, there must not be any room to spare, which would preclude using chains. The 4WD ratio would be fine, however, provided you also put on the 27" fronts.

    I was actually thinking of putting on 39" tires (paired with 27" fronts) once mine worn out, because those would fit and leave room for chains. 41" would be interesting, however.

    When I bought my R1’s. I gave this a cursory look. I think they would fit but it would be very tight.

    The results may be different depending on tread type. My Rear R3’s are 2” shorter than my R1’s. Fronts are also different. Not sure how either compare to a R4 though. I suspect 3 series R1’s would remove the fuel tank on the first rotation.

    I said "3038E wheels/tires" because I believe they changed tires and rims as a set, but that wasn't 100% clear. I believe the rear rim diameter is larger. but the front rims are the same with a taller profile tire?

    I saw that post as well Joe and that got my attention. Didn't look to be much room to spare between the fenders and tires.

    I just spent like 20 minutes scrolling down to the very last post in that group. Couldn’t find it. Did they not post pics?

    I did find a guy who bought a set of wheels and R4 tires off of a 2038R. Photo was of them in the back of his pickup. Maybe you misread it?

    I don’t know Pat, it looks like there is plenty of clearance......

    I did miss it, thank you. I was looking for obvious photos and those were hidden in the comments.

    Hmm...very interesting. Definitely no room for chains though.

    You really think there's no room for chains? It looks like there is 4"-6" of clearance still...... I know using photos to make these judgements are deceiving though..... I was more concerned about the wheel diameters and gear ratios causing damage to the drivetrain...... I still wonder.......
