In my opinion, here is a guy with a bad idea that really doesn't care that it's a bad idea.

http://tinyurl.com/4xpmoca

He's cranking out these dual wheel kits and saying that they are for LAWN TRACTORS.

OK... it's true that a LT owner could go to the junk yard and find another pair of 12" tires/rims and install them on his tractor using this kit. However, look at the leverage the outside wheel puts on the axle....which is often only 3/4" or 1" shaft that is keyed or splined to the OEM wheels. Smack one of those outside tires into a tree and you will have a bent axle in the blink of an eye. You will also be stressing the aluminum housing (which is often the axle bushing) well beyond the engineered design parameters.

In fact, I disagree with every so-called benefit he claims for his kit.

I agree.

They make the right tractor look like a real brute and if you are creating a scaled down 70 Series that is often equipped with duals, then your GT looks very appropriate.



But as I remarked at the outset...... this guy is preying on the poor guys that own LT's and I find that despicable.

I am wondering, aside from looking cool do they provide any real traction advantage? Seems like the more you spread out, the more you "float".
