Copy that! Thanks for your help!!so...
yes they will fit - but, be aware the the 1880 uses a front rim size of 7.5 width - and the 2380 use a 8.5 front width, so what's the problem?
that 8.5 will reach and rub the steering knuckle - and bind the front rim up!
the ratio is about the same - very very close btw.
SO - the answer ??? Get a set of 1/2 shims and place them on the front - yeah I know the front shim police will have a field day on this - but is simply pulls the front out JUST enough to make it work.
I have them on my BX1850 and they were off a BX2370 - 4wd works fine and it gives you a bit more clearance and a bit more smoother ride.
Be careful with this - you REALLY need to measure the rolling circumference of the set you have NOW and then do the same with the new set.... new set needs to be on the rims and inflated tooWould putting front wheel spacers cure this problem? I've been wanting to put the larger wheels and tires on my BX 1800.
I tried that and it did not keep the front left tire from rubbing the mower deck. One thing to note here is that the mower deck that you have will affect what rubs and where. So, as I stated above, I have the RCK54P mower deck. Even if you have a 54" mower deck on your BX1800, your machine may not have the same results as mine does because some differences exist between some vintages of machines and even mower decks made for those different vintage machines. So unless someone chimes in with the same vintage machine as yours, you will have to make your own measurements to know for certain what will work.Would putting front wheel spacers cure this problem?
