Does anyone know if the 345 rear rim has the same bolt pattern as the 445 series pattern?
The 345 has a 23x10.5x12 tire on it.....so this would fit a 26x12x12 tire -right?

Cobra I went to the parts book and the 345 rim is the same part # as the 425 rim 8.5 inch wide for 23-10.50 tire the 445 used a 9.5 or 10.5 width (parts book lists both) for 26-12 tire. So yes they will work but might make the tire taller in the center as opposed to the one on the other side not an issue if your going to use both rims from the 345. There is no info on if the offset is the same maybe someone else on here knows. BILL

Thanks Bill,
Yeah the offeset is also part of my problem... I love the 445 wide stance. But I am affraid the 345 rims may have a different narrow stance...

Anyone out there with a 445/455 have rims from a 345?

Here are the specs for the 10.5" wide rim:

Diameter 12.000 IN
Width 10.500 IN
Offset Depth 0.590 IN

Bolt Circle Diameter 4.500 IN
Hole Size 0.470 IN
Wheel Load 0.00 LBF
Rim Contour 10.5JA
Finish
Note

Appears that there is only .138" difference in the offset.

Also, here are the specs for the rim found on the GX345, with 24"x12"x12" tire:

Specification
Weight 14.26 LBS 6.47 Kg
Diameter 12.000 IN
Width 8.500 IN
Offset Depth 0.340 IN
Pilot Diameter 3.150 IN
Bolt Circle Diameter 4.500 IN
Hole Size 0.470 IN
Wheel Load 0.00 LBF
Rim Contour 8.5JA
Finish K
Note

Found here: https://jdparts.deere.com/servlet/c...er.PartDetails?lineNumber=15&screenName=quote

Notice the offset has decreased. I know from personal experience that the 24"x12"x12" tire really fills the fender pan! I am not sure if 26"x12"x12" tires will fit, IMHO. YMMV.

FYI: I found these specifications by adding each rim to my cart. Once you have done that, from your shopping cart, click on the "Part No." for the item in question. This will bring up a page with relevant information.

I hope this helps.

POENY,

This is how I was able to determine the diameter of the sheaves for the chute rotation on the various snow blower models. I hope you didn't think I purchased the sheaves to determine the specs, or that I had "insider information":trink40:.

I am a sucker for any hotlink I come across!
