They're often in the narrow position for shipping or getting through narrow spots but study the rim offset to ensure they aren't already in the wide position.

Block the fronts. Break the rear lugs free. Jack the rear just clear of the ground. Undo and remove the lugs. Pull a wheel off, preferably with a helper. Spin it in place 180 degrees so the outside is now the inside. Reverse the procedure. Repeat on other side.

Tips: If one tire shows different wear than the other, you can interchange L/R at the same time. But if you have asymmetrical or ag tread, you must interchange L/R. If the valve-stem will now be on the inside, put a dab of nail polish or such on the outside so you'll know where to look on the inside. Use a torque wrench for the final tightening, probably around 130 ft-lbs. On some models you can also change the position of the rims relative to the wheel.

Agricultural tread is very directional whereas most turfs are symmetrical. Look from the back which way the cleats go, and check they go that way before re-installing. You can get stud extenders at a farm-tire shop to convert to dualies, but it's a lot cheaper to be careful on the hills.

Liner is just dark, but there's apparently 100 shades of pink and 200 of red. I get the out-of-fashion polish because nothing marks better on metal. Don't let on that I use last year's colors, OK?

There is some pivot in your front axle, be sure you use support under each side of your rear axle so when you pull the first tire off the side with the tire still on it does not become much heavier in a hurry. It can be dangerous...If you are spinning the tires out you should have no problem placing stands where they will be clear, however if you ever spin them back in it is easy to set the stands in the way of the wheel coming in.

Just so Auerbach does not take all the heat for nail polish it also works good on gun sights.

Bet you like the difference in steering and brakes between it and the 8N. The 8N probably road better due to the weight difference.
