    1025R wheel spacers

    Looking at brotex wheel spacers, is 1.5" the thickest recommended and are there other brands?

    Not sure of how brands translate from cars & trucks to tractors but, on a car or truck, Id never use anything but BORA spacers. They are probably the most (or among the most) expensive around but, you get what you pay for when you buy their brand.

    The fact that tractors go much slower though, and you aren't worried about going 75 MPH around curves, I'm sure other brands may be just fine for a tractor. Im sure others will chime in though before you pull the trigger on which ones to buy.

    I have a question...... why put wheel spacers on a 1025R?

    I am having a hard time to see the advantage in adding 1 1/4" width to the stance of the tractor. My yard is seriously sloped and I mow across it and have no problems, other than staying in the seat. In fact, if the grass is too wet, the tractor will slide side ways, not tip. Now, I do have my rear tires filled with beet juice but no wheel weights.

    If it is to install tire chains, I have a BH on my 1025R with R4 tires. Yes, you have to be careful to install the chains in the grooves but they work without spacers.

    I'm just asking, don't throw anything!! Convince me.......

    I have the FILB with beet juice in tires. When turning on my slopes I hear and feel my lugs slightly rubbing on BH mounting frame regardless what I have mounted. I don't really have a stability issue.

    While you tractor is sliding down the slope, a wheel could contact an obstacle thus possibly tipping. Now I'm not saying that spacers would stop that from happening, but a little insurance can't hurt. I have 2" Bora spacers on my 1025R, and it makes a tremendous difference in stability.

    To address OP's question, the width of spacers is dependent on whether or not he has a MMM and what width it is. Not positive, but I think 1-1/4" spacers are the maximum width for a 54" deck. There are threads on this forum addressing the issue of width when combined with MMM's.

    I have 1 1/2 inch spacers on my 1025 I don't have a mmm but I do have a curtis cab and it felt a little top heavy when I was running in my yard(small hills) so I added the spacers 1st then came back and added some 50 lb wheel weights too much better now

    I am thinking about adding spacers to the rear of my 1025R. Was looking at Bora spacers. I am also thinking I will be getting a mmm so I think 1.5" is the biggest I can go. You also have to consider the width of your machine once you have spacers on. It will be wider than you 48" attachments like a rototiller. You may need to mount them offset to one side to cover one set of tire tracks.

    If you have a Mauser cab on a 1025R, and you are on anything but pancake flat terrain, you will want wheel spacers. Added 3 inch wheel spacers from Bro Tek, and they do make a world of difference.
