Awesome, what rims are those on the back? I'm planning to build a rack just like that, tied into the frame at the bottom.

Yeah,
those rims are brand new ITP 12X7 rims that I ordered out of the Motovan catalog at my local ATV/motorcycle dealer. They cost me about 150$ total. I would recommend however to get slightly wider rims for the rear than I did. I believe those were meant for the front but they were the cheapest.

Arild365 and I have worked hard on this project, and he definitely helped with a lot of the mods that you see. This tractor has gone from stock to this in under 4 weeks.We worked one night up till 2:00 in the morning welding the bush bumper and the ATV rack. The same night we swapped the engine, added a gas pedal, made a custom exhaust, changed the front pulley, changed the oil, removed some mowing components and tested it out! Thought i'd upload some of my photos, more to come, hopefully after this week-end.

I was thinking that they were a 12" trailer wheel, because they were narrow. You guys have definitely done a lot of good work in a short amount of time. Now we need videos of you two romping.

Those are the same style ATV tires ( on the rear) i got for $20 - just need to get a couple 10" rims now . Youd think out of all the stuff i have, id have a pair of 10" rims....yeah i want a wider rim as well.

I still could kick myself for not getting those complete atv wheels/rims at TSC - one complete wheel was $65....


Traction should vastly be improved with those ATV tires.
