Q:

Wheel weights and chains for tractor 917-270920

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will be able to assist you with the tire chains and weights. I looked up the part number for the chains and they are 24860 the weights are part number 24434. The chains and weights can be ordered from our website: Sears.com . I do not recommend changing the wheel size. The reason is on most tractors the larger wheels will hit the fenders and the mower deck. Not to mention you might not be able to adjust the deck enough to cut correctly.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

Larger tires for lawn tractor?

A:

Thank you for your question.

It is possible to install bigger wheels on the tractor. I the problem is you will have to find rims that will fit the axle. We only have the original wheels listed so you will have to do some searching. Then depending on big the tires are you might have a problem getting the mower deck adjusted correctly. The front of the deck has to be pitched down to cut even. I am afraid you might run into a problem with it flipping the belt off easily.

Please reply below with more details if you need further assistance.
