Hello, I’m new to forums so apologies if my etiquette’s a bit off. I was wondering if anyone has seen these wide front rims available anywhere, or knows what the officiall name of them is? They seem to feature quite widely on the continent, particularly in Germany but I’ve never seen them in the UK on any B series. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I’m looking to upgrade from agri tyres as doing more mowing, also I think they look fabulous. Thanks in advance,

I assume that in the UK that you have availability of similar products as the USA so the wider wheels here are turf tire wheels. I have a link below to see that tire set


There is a newer style tire called the R14 that is a combination of the agricultural R1 and industrial R4 (wider) tires. I believe they are what you might be looking at but those might be R4 tires


this is a link to R4 tires

None look like your picture though.

if you’re looking to replace the wheels and tires then you should look into the WHOLEGOODS price list at your dealer in the sales department

What would the motivation be for wanting wider front wheels?

Flotation on soft ground?

Just curious, since wider front wheels do not add much in the way of stability, as compared to making the rear wheels wider...

Edit: I guess wider front RIMS would change the tire contact patch, all else being equal...

Hi, yes I’ve got soft ground so I’m hoping less damage to the grass when it’s wet, but still want an agri style tread for other areas of use 👍
