BSR, it looks like in your pic the Cub's wheels are set all the way in, but I can't see the left rear in the pic.

It's safer with a loader to widen them out more, at least the rear wheels. It will only go to the second wider position, the 44" setting with the rear discs turned in. Some people on here with loaders have the rear discs turned out, so they can get more width.
You would have to change sides with the rear wheels, tires and discs, so the tire tread faces ahead, like it is. So you would have to move the weights with them also.

One wheel weight can go inside, with the disc turned out, I think, but not 2 weights.
You would have to move one or both weights to the outside of the disc.

It's easier to change it to the 44" setting, all you have to move is the rims from side to side, if the tires are assembled right on the rims, and it would be wider some.
Wider than that would be safer. :)

Speaking of setting track, the manual says to not set the front more than 44" and the rear not more than 48". I assume it is to keep from breaking the tractor.

As far as track width I went with wider tires to keep from sinking in the soft ground I have and for more stability

When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!
