Hi Mr E,
The box hole for the bolt head is closer to the cub in the second pic (just rims are flipped relative to the two respective pics).
Hope I am not muddy-ing the aqua -so to speak

Bill,
Great photos and tutorial. This will have to go in the reference section. Also, everyone keep in mind, some of these options are dependent on swapping the rims from one side of the tractor to the other, if you have AG tires and want to keep the V treads headed the correct direction. Also, when you have the tires mounted on the rims, some of these options are not really possible, without re-mounting the tires, again, in order to keep the V treads headed in the right direction.

Also, lets not venture into 9 or 10 inch width tires :lol:

I put the photos in the photo host. There is a folder for how to photos that they will eventually go into so they will stay with the post. They are also on my website so they will also be on line through that as soon as I get the page built.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Awesome quick reference! I'm curious.. are the widths measured from the inside, outside or middle of the rim? I should probably just walk outside and measure it, but it's kinda dark..

Thanks Barnyard;
Glad you took the time and effort to make this happen. Much easier to understand. Pics are worth 1000 words.
