Default Moving wheels out?

I have a L5030 HST. Every year I put the rear chains on for winter and if I don't get them just right, they interfere, just barely hitting the fender support. Is there somewhere reasonable to get spacers (I don't consider $350 reasonable for two steel rings).

Look carefully at your real wheels, then your operator's manual. My L2501 has a couple of options for mounting the rear wheel differently on the center to get extra offset outward.

I did spacers for my little BX1880 for $46.00 for both rear wheels from amazon.
Now, your tractor is MUCH bigger but the ones I bought are made for a Jeep Cherokee which according to google weighs about what your L5030 HST does.
of course given the size of your L5030 this may not translate for you.
YMMV.

Hope this helps.

You can get them on EBay for about $50 a pair.
