This is my first post, although I have lurked here for a couple of years. I have an LA130 with a tired tranny. I am in the process of gathering the parts needed to do the K66 swap. I decided to go with G100 hubs and five bolt wheels. I just got a pair of 12"x8.5" wheels from a Sears Suburban, which I was told are dimensionally the same as JD wheels. I don't have any of the other parts in hand yet. In trying to visualize how these wheels with 23x10.5 tires will fit, I am concerned that the tires will rub on the rear mower deck wheels. I have the 48" deck. I have not gotten tires yet and am wondering if I should go with 23x9.5 instead to reduce the overall width. Any thoughts/comments would be appreciated.
