Put a front end loader on a Ford 3000. Added Ford wheel weights to balance the load. Had to swap the wheels to get the weights on. The valve stems are now on the outside. Now the tires rub on the front end loader frame. Are there wheel extensions that will fit the 3000? I don"t think dual wheel spacers are strong enough. I have less than .5" between the fender and the tire. Any other suggestions to solve this problem?

Just unbolt the centers and either put'em on the inside of the rim or turn them over.

Have a look at the photo below.
There are several combinations you can set your wheel and centers to to widen them.

Thanks for the replys. Looks like I can keep the wheels in the current position and just move the centers to the inside of the rim brackets. Hopefully, I will be able to mount the wheel weights in the new configuration.

We looked at the spacing for rear wheels by moving the position of the hub and it looks like we are at the best position currently to allow the wheel weights to clear while installing them. I found an extension that may work in an old post.

The distance from the center of the axle to the center of a wheel bolt on the 3000 is 3 3/8 inches. Does anyone know if the pictured wheel extension will work and where I could find a pair? I have also included a picture of the tractor.

Is that a Johnson Snowmobile in the background?
