We're using a 10.5" wide tire on about a 7" wheel, for a SS-15 pulling tractor in stock class. The tire size is limited by the class, but we would like to mount a wider wheel. I have found a wider set of wheels with about an inch deeper offset on the inside...which would put the tire to far in, and rub the inside of the fender. So, here's the question.....I see square head set screws that appear to locate the hub onto the axle. Can I slide the hub out an inch on the axle to get the needed clearance ???? or is this something I shouldn't even consider.

I don't think I would for pulling. Sears did make 8.5 rims, and the old cub rims have the same off set as the sears.

I think I'll just keep looking for wheels, for now. I need one with no more than 2" offset on the inside. The stock ones on there now are 7" wide, mounting a 23 X 10.5 X 12 tire. So, an 8.5 rim might be perfect.
