In other news I got another 4 wheeled toy today. This time I went all electric!

It was quite the effort to load and unload the thing into the car myself but I got it home.

Wait until you realize your yard is too big for a push mower and you have to tow the rider home! It took me two years to reach that point.

Got new wheels installed. No Lift. No rubbing whatsoever
Wheels: Bronze Konig Ampliform 18x8.5 +45 offset = 18.5lbs.
TIres: Falken Ziex ZE950 245/55R18 = 32lbs.

This setup (50.5lbs) is actually about 1.5lbs per tire LIGHTER than the factory wheels and tires. (52lbs) Despite the larger contact patch.

Those look awesome. I was actually looking at the same set. Can you post a pic from the back or front to show how far they stick out?

Here ya go. I put a straight edge against the bottom of the tire and the fender so you could see the allignment better. I think the spacing is perfect. I definately wouldn't go much less of an offset than 45 with the 8.5" wheel.

About 7/8in gap at the closes point in the front fender well. I definately feel a 245/60R18 would also fit with this wheel size/offset

That would fill up with snow and ice in no time in my neck of the woods. I find even the stock tire's gap fills up in no time either.

In sticking with my stock size tires precisely because of the snow issue. I just don’t feel like paying $100 twice a year to mount and dismount when I can just do it in the driveway.

I don't have that problem here in Alabama. Everyone should definely consider their own philosophy of use when considering a change in wheel size.

I've got their snow blower. It's not bad but is a little harder to push than the smaller gas powered Toro I had once upon a time. I don't mow my own lawn anymore and my woodshop is in the 3rd bay so I didn't want another possible source of combustible vapors to worry about.

Congrats! As someone who sees lots of wrecked cars for work, there’s a reason my family rides around in an outback
