For the width of your fronts, not sure. Tallest 8 inch wheel tire I have seen is 22 inch, but that is for a wider rim.

i do plan on this thing to be able to get threw the mud becase im praticly addicted to mudding, but i defiantly plan on this being a work horse/utility tractor. i plan on fixing the 3 point hitch and if some how i find a blade deck for it im getting it.

what were you expecting? thats stock on a 990. the 970 has 12"
now for every one i worked on the thing more tonight, dont have time to dump camra, need to get to bed so i can get up at 4am for MORE OVER TIME, im so over overtime, yet i wont turn it down when offerd it. the tractor is mostly assembled, did not put hood on yet, im gutting a re-wiring the whole eletrical system first.

i was going to rebuild the starter/genrator as its abit stiff, but the thing works and i was stripping the bolts trying to get it a part, i risk daming it with heat, so ile let it go till its actually a problem instead of making one.

i also need to get ain air filter since my last one coght on fire.

well i ended up bying the 16" carsile xtrac tiers for the front becase they were cheep and i only could find turf savors in bigger. i think 35" in the rear and 16" in the front its going to be absurd.

dew to the fact that tractor is to big for me to back in to the shead i think that getting duallies will be a spring time project, because in a month when i can afford to buy another set im not going to want to work outside.

I would have gone with something like this for the front:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-1-pair-20X7-8-D-929-ATV-Knobby-Tires-Tire-DS7316-20x7-00-8-20-7-8-20-700-8/391717662654?hash=item5b34312fbe:g:8IEAAOSweehambWd🇸🇨UPSGround!14522!US!-1:rk:2🇵🇫0

or some other 20x7-8 tire.  They would fit that rim nicely.

It's good to see someone else getting on old flathead running.

if that actually wold fit that rim right then im kinda upset about it, i hate how low my front sits.
it looks awesome from the back and kinda sad in the front.

Yeah definitely need some bigger tires in the front. Those tires Carl linked would fit and I bet they'd look pretty neat. Even some 21's would look good I imagine.

The new rear tires look pretty good though.

I've seen a few of these monster lifted mower in sprocket's garage on facebook.

I get concerned over the center of gravity.  However they look like a lot of fun for mud bogging!
