I have 1-1/2 inch Jeep spacers. They gave me plenty of clearance for tire chains and the loader bucket is still wider than the rear tires.

I can't find the email to give you a link.

If I recall, it was hubcentric 5x4.5. I went with 3" spacers on back, none on front. Slightly wider than the bucket. Massive increase in how stable it feels on a slope, and flat out looks MEAN.

I had to use something similar to a spark plug socket to fit in the holes to do the first set of nuts/bolts. Used thread locker on them since you can't easily re-torque those with the wheels on.

If your tires are loaded, they will be very heavy.

Bro-tek 3" rear only works great, six years now and no issues and very easy to install.

I purchased the Jeep spacers for $40, and will give them a try. If I feel that I need to have a wider spacer I will look into the ones recommended. I rather spend $40 initially and move up to the more expensive ones later on if I find I need a thicker spacer. My tractor seems more like a boat, you keep pouring money into it, and there is no end in sight.

These are the ones I got from Amazon for my BX1860 rear tires.

And here is a picture of what they look like on the tractor.

The Amazon spacers arrived on Friday, and I attempted to put them on today, however, the original bolts that hold the wheel onto the axle hub have a head that doesn't allow me to get a socket into the recess to tighten them. How did you attach the spacers to your axle hub? I am wondering, do the later BX series still use bolts to secure the wheels or are there studs on the axle, and it uses nuts to secure the wheel? I have some ideas how to resolve this, but am wondering how others have installed their spacers.

I ended up having to grind a socket to fit in the hole. That worked for me.
