Adjusting rear tire width

I need to try to move the rear tires in on the WC I just bought to get it on my trailer. Is this something that I should be able to do fairly easily? Right now they measure about 77 inches to the outside. From what I've read, I should be able to move them in to about 72 inches to fit on my trailer. What all is involved in this? I haven't looked closely yet, but I'm assuming it's just a clamp on the hub that I loosen and slide the tires in. Anything else I may need to bring with me? Thanks.

I am assuming it is a styled WC with the cast center pieces. The dishes have to be turned in and the wheels have to have the clamp portion has to be to the inside as well. If this is the way they are, then you are as narrow as you can go. The narrowest it says in my WC manual is 65" with the wheels turned in towards the tractor and the long offset side of the rim turned towards the tractor. Hope that this helps.

Minimum tread on a WC is 65" measured from center to center. Add about 12 for tire width and your at 77. I don't think it'll fit with the wheels on. WD's have a min. tread of 56".

About the only way I know to narrow the wheels on a WC is flip them side for side. Odds are they are already as narrow as they'll get. The 72" is probably center to center and 77" outside. The hubs are part of the tractor, no bar axles like newer stuff. Maybe someone else has some ideas...?

The most common is to switch the wheels from side to side.....but the cast centers can be mounted on either side of the "dimples" (my made-up term) on the rims. That would give two extra possibilities of wheel settings if the rim has only one row of dimples.
