Default 23X10.5X12 ag tires, rim question

I bought a set of super lug carlisles in the above size for my John Deere 265. The rims I have seem to be too thin by about 1 to 2 inches. Do I have the right rim or are these tires just different from turf tires and are really hard to put on?

I bought these loose rims off ebay about a year ago and I'm positive the ad said they were for 10.5" wide tires. These tires don't flex like turf savers do, so that's why I'm posting what may be a very dumb question. Thanks!

If I remember good 23x10.50-12 go on 8.5 rim wide, someone can confirm that?

You can grab the Carlisle catalog. It lists the recommended rim dimensions for their tires.

Thanks for the help. The catalog doesn't list this size for the super lug. It does list this size for the true power tires. The rim width for the true power is 7 inches. I guess I have the right rims and these suckers are just really hard to put on. I got one of them almost all the way on with about 4 or 5 inches of bead left to roll on. I couldn't go any further. The rim lip bent! Any suggestions to get these on?

I lot of 23 10.5 12 tires are only 9" wide, but the carlisles are just about the width they say they are. I ordered a set of lugs for a pulling tractor and the one a got were 8.5 wide sent them back and ordered the carlises. But for a pulling tractor using a 10.5 wide tire you build your wheels to be 11" wide.

It sounds like you might be installing them from the wrong side of the wheel. The tire has to go on the wheel on the same side as the valve stem. The tire bead has to be able to slip down into the drop center of the wheel in order to have enough clearance for the tire bead to clear the wheel rim. If you were applying enough pressure to bend the wheel you are doing something wrong.

You need to take them to a tire shop and let them put the tires on the wheels with the new style mounting machine. The "V" in the rim isn't out far enough to allow the tire to go in so you can stretch the tire over the outside of the rim.

Mais bien sur!

My rims are 8.5" wide. Rule of thumb is 1.5" - 2.5" narrower than the tire.

That is how it once was. Carlisle now is saying 7 inch rim for most of their 10.50 tires. They may have change the tires a little ?

These are 26x12x12's and they got mounted on 8.5" wide rims, they are 8 ply, I was able to get one side on by hand but no way I could even get the other side started, brought them to town fair tire and for 12 bucks they popped them right on for 12 bucks.

Where to find the 12x8.5" wheel?
Is there anyone that might offer a package deal, ie; AT101s mounted on 8.5 wheels for a Craftsman GT?
I take it the wheel is a common generic bolt pattern & BS....
Any help is appreciated...
Norm

Norm, those are very common rims. All over Ebay. Also I believe millertire sells rims and could most likely get you a package deal.

Where'd you find those Super Lug's? If you don't mind, could you say what you paid for them?
