I posted this over on the Yahoo group. But, just in Case (pun intended) more than one wheel was used I thought I would check in with you guys. The first measurement indicates that at least one LBH has wheels with a 2"offset to the outside, 6" from the axle to outside of wheel.

I'm finally getting back to my 644 project. I'm installing axles from a 648LBH
for the added width to allow me to put some 12" wide 12 wheels and tires on the
back. Lookin' at mine, I'm guessing a 0 offset might work.

I've got the tires and have found a couple of sets of wheels from a member here.

What I need now is a wheel offset measurement from someone who has a LBH with
12" wheels. Just to be sure what I'm looking at will work.

Anyone have that info available???

That depends on the tire size. The original 15" tires were 26x8.50(maybe 8.00, not sure)-15. My tires will be 27x12-12, so it will actually be 1/2" higher, (27-26)/2. Due to tire wear, it will really be more like an inch higher as my lugs are just about worn completely off.

I am looking for flotation, capacity for fluid filling (the fat 12s hold more fluid), and added width for stability.

One thing to keep in mind when you have the flotation setup...
If you try to dig/plow along a curb you're going to do a number on your sidewalls since the bucket isn't as wide as the rear tires...

Really...

Otherwise my 646 has 26x12-12... Don't recall the offset though I measured it once for someone... It's in the Yahoo site someplace if you could ever find anything with the search...

Thanks everyone for the info. Ted, just so I'm clear, the 4" backspace is measured from the axle end to the outer edge of the wheel???? or maybe inner? I can never keep the terminology clear.
