So I have a Murray widebody with a 12.5hp Briggs flathead. Does anyone have any ideas or build tips for me. I have a 2500 pound winch. About to have to buy tires any suggestions? Thanks!

What kind of tires do you want? Super grippy or medium or not very grippy?  Are you locked?  What trans does it have?

12.5 hp I would go medium to low grippy (as DWCR puts it). That kind of terrains we talking about? Dryer the less grippy to wet more grippy. LOL

If it's a Murray LT it most likely has 8" rims on the rear.

I’m getting Carlisle X-Tracs for the front. They are at Walmart right now for 14 bucks a pop with rim.

Okay cuz that's pretty important. I assume, since it has an mst, they're 8s, but confirm that before you buy or they won't fit.

1st option, ags

I like ags because they grip great, don't fill in, and are cheap.

The mower looks good. I love those Briggs flatheads, if you look after them they are really reliable.
