Front Wheel Bolt Pattern ??

Tue Aug 24, 2004 7:19 am

I live a few miles from where I store my Cub and have not gotten a chance to go and measure myself. I am wanting to get some different flotation tires / wheels to put on the front of my mowing Cub. Does anyone happen to know the front wheel bolt pattern. I know that they are 5 hole but are they on 4.5" spacing or ? I appreciate any help that you can offer. Thanks

looks like 4.5" spacing, 5 lug

But.... I've found that you can't use any old 5 lug, 4.5 inch wheel. The hub on the Cub front axles is 1/8 to 3/16 inch larger than the center hole in most currently available wheels. Be sure to check them before you plunk your money down. :)

Some Ford and Dodge rims with 5 bolt holes will fit a cub,but you have to cut the centre hole out bigger to fit over the wheel bearing cover.That way you can go to a bigger tire as well.I am still looking for a set.

Pay attention with all the wheel swapping that you don't run into clearance problems with your belly mounted mower deck or front mounted snow plow.

Thanks for all the great information. I will keep all these tips in mind when selecting a pair of wheels.
