Actually, they're already mounted, but I want to reverse the way they are fitted to the inner disc, putting the valve stem on the outside, making it accessible, and increasing the width slightly. These are filled R-4's, on a Kubota L3130. At present, you can't measure the pressure with the valve stems at the top, which is how it should be done, since they are filled, and I like the extra stability that would result with the width. Protecting the stems from brush, etc., isn't an issue. My question is, do I have to rotate the left and right wheel/tire when I do this, to keep the direction of the tread's "chevron" going the same way, or can I take the easy path (they probably weigh 600 lbs each) and just remove each side and flip it around on the center disc, which has to come off as well. This is all kosher, according the the manual, but I think the tread pattern makes a difference? I did a quick search here, but didn't find any explanations, but I imagine this is not a new topic?
