Does anybody know where to get an adapter for the D-17 to put 38 inch,9 bolt JD or Oliver wheels on it?? I use it for pulling and can't get traction with the 14.9 X 28's. I have put 8500 lbs on it and it just spins, so maybe the taller tires will fix me up. E-mail me if you have any info on this or if you know another way to get the 38's on the D-17.(other than cutting the rims and rewelding)
glennjoyner@alltel.net ..........Thanks...Glenn

AC 38" rims are out there with the 8 hole bolt pattern, as they were an option on the D17 and 170-185 tractors. MF rims are probably the same. I have a set of 15.5 x 38's on PAW rims.

Well if you go that way you will loose a lot of torque and you may end up stalling out instead of spinning out. Don't know which is worse stalling half way down the track or spinning out. I think I would go with wider tires instead of taller tires I prefer to keep the torque high and tall tires will kill your torque

cast centers off an 90 massey standerd fit they will give you more weight and bigger tires
