So what 5000 series tractor fan doesn’t love the “Don’s Tire Conversion”? I’d been pondering how to do one for a bit now, finally got the parts together & did it this past Saturday. I would like to have gone bigger but ideal sizes were hard to come by & I was keeping on a certain budget. Still pleased with outcome though.

Are the tires different diameters? I can’t tell, the different widths are throwing me off.

Quite the look difference from factory.

It truly has much more of your typical tractor look for sure, definitely more aggressive looking. Front & rear tires are roughly 2” taller than stock. 26x12x12 on rear, 5-12 front

I appreciate the heads up. I’m at exactly 1:1.21. I did a lot of research, a lot of diameter & circumference measurements. Bought & returned 2 pair of tires to get the ideal ratio, tires were listed as a certain size but when actually measured not ideal so it was a lot of trial & error. Havnt used Pi since high school.... was kind of fun figuring it all out. Again I appreciate the info
