    When to reverse the rear wheels on 1 Series?

    I was just wondering I found out last year by accident that the rear wheels can be reversed to make it tighter to the body. Is there a benefit other that closer clearance and making pressure checks very difficult? Hahaha. There must be a reason.... Thank you friends.

    When you say that pressure checks would be more difficult to me that means the valve stems would be on the inside.

    If your valve stems are on the outside that means your wheels are in the narrow position. Valve stems on the inside means the wheels are in the wide position.

    Putting the wheels in the wide position helps with stability on side hills and also sometimes helps with clearance issues with tire chains.

    So which way are your wheels now?

    Maybe I wasn’t understanding, I read it like he wanted a narrower footprint than he already has.

    I don’t really understand either - that’s why I asked for the present position of the stems.

    I think he is asking IF there is a benefit. Sounds like he just found out it is possible to flip the wheels and is wondering if there is a good reason to do it. Only reason I can think of would be if you have gates on your property and need to fit through them. Besides that, you want to be as wide as possible. Every inch counts in stablizing your tractor. I have 2.4 inch wheel spacers on the rear and it makes a world of difference. Unless you have a specific reason, stay wide.

    Coaltrain, on these little machines the valve stem on the outside is the wide position.

    Frankly After seeing how close to the backhoe frame the tires are now on mine I don't think they would actually bolt up reversed?

    Unless John Deere has changed the rims since I bought my 1025r in 2014 there is only one way for the wheels to mount. They are not the same type of rims as the older 2 series machines that allowed the rear wheels to flipped. The valve stems facing out is the only way the rims will mount.
