I don't know, but if one or the other rim is off the tractor I've taken cardboard and a Sharpie and traced the hub and bolt pattern and compared to the other one after cutting out the holes like a template.

mine was set wider than his .
now he wants to set his wider when it warms up when we change tires .
got him out of a bind for the winter though .
i put 24 on my 202 for the winter to slow her down for the snow blower .
the 28 in the spring for more ground hieght .
the messy rims added class to the ford . lol

rv antifreeze ( non tox ) and water. mainly use the AF for corrosion resistance, .. so i don't make it a strong soloution. just a bit.. say 4g per tire, then water. we do get an occasional freeze in florida.. maybee a total of 2 weeks out of a year will be cold enough to make or keep ice.. so a hair of af is plenty for ice.. and woorks for corrosion prot too.

I get used antifreeze for free up here in NW Ind. Car dealerships will usually give it away or they have to pay to have it hauled off. Though not like Soundguy I don't have animals all around so its safe for me. If I had some then it would be the RV type.

we used to be able to get the suff for free.. same with lead tire weights.. but everyone is so concerned about liability anymore that nobody will do it now. go figure.. :)
