    So i know this topic has been beat to death, But when i search the topic there's still question left unanswered for me. I like the idea of running 19.5 or 22.5 tires which are a couple inches taller then the stock 12x16.5 for extra speed. I see a lot of guys are getting there tires from Westside Tire but with the crappy Canadian dollar it will make ordering a setup from the states very expensive. Does anyone know anywhere in Canada to order a tire/rim setup like Westside sells. Or what rims I need to get and what size tires to get to make my own set.

    Thanks Mike

    It dawned on me that I can't run the taller then stock tire, because i have a snow wing.

    I am curious why this means you can't run taller tires?

    I just got a set from my Deere dealer, $900 for the set.

    They are 16.5's, which I don't mind.

    You can rotate the wings 180 degrees to make a back drag box. If i have tires that are several inches taller then stock the wings wont touch the ground.
