For once, I'm going to have to agree with Richie and say yeah, that's going to break something.  You're going to break a spindle off, or maybe even break the axle in half.  They aren't designed for tires that big.

i still disagree, im taking alot of stress of the front axle, instead of just slamming it in to things trying to make the front wheels get over stuff. it will be easy and near stress free on front end. and thats the only way i have ever caused damage to a front axle. small tires has caused me problems on 4 front axles.

By changing the approach angle, you might be causing less stress on the frame.  But I'm talking about the spindles and the torque you're going to be giving to the steering.

ile watch video. but my axle is cast iron, top speed 13mph, tie rod is angle iron and grade 8 bolts, steering rod is re-enforced with rebar. mtd has solid steering setup, and i might change ratio down the road. and agin, having big tires lifted out of the mud will be easier to steer than those little ones that let the axle scrape mud because of hoe heavy the tractor is.

I removed that video because Forummotion doesn't work. What I was referencing was his phrasing. https://youtu.be/-SxF28hNAME?t=320

the only way i could see me breaking this is if it went fast like dinky and i were to whip the wheel at high speeds. that sideways stress would be strong over leverage and the shock would be hard on the cast. but this thing is SLOW.

that was my 1st thought... but i dont know if i can get spacers for trailer bolt paturn.
from what i can see based on the pic you posted they are 5x4.5 and ebay has 1 1/2 and 2 inch wheel spacers that fit that pattern

Wheel Spacers Link.


Admin edit... link is breaking the page. Still goes to the 4 spacers for 58.99 free shipping.

The same thing was wrong with the tank my Swisher, I paid $2 online for a new seal, and now it works like a champ. No leaks.
