I'm new to the forum with the same problem as many here ! I've purchased a B7100 4x4 in great shape but with ag tires on it ! I want to go to R-4 front and rear but the wheels are too narrow for what I want tire wise . I'm wanting to stay with same size but just different tread and width ! Can and where can I buy the rims if anyone knows ?

With changing tires, you better get the ratios right or you'll quickly have a 2wd or broke wheel drive tractor.

Because your tractor is not really all that heavy you can use agricultural equipment implement wheels, there are a number of sources for these wheels and you will have to determine your bolt pattern including pilot hole and find the wheels that will work for your tractor, You also need to remember that you must maintain the same wheel ratio so it is best to find a tire/tires that are the same height as your current front and rear tires.

There are a number of sources for implement wheels so you need to determine what you need then start searching to try to match to what you want in a tire.

I was planning to maintain the same size wheels ( 12" on the frt and 16" on the rear except wider ! i was going to try to stay close to the height ! I know these came with turf tires and assume they had wider wheels from the factory . The ag tires will beat you to death on hard ground and are rough on a yard so I was just wanting to smooth things out !

There are some older threads that go over several options on rims and tires that are a huge improvement over stock AG tires.
