As I was mowing lately seemed like I was "pushing" my self-propelled mower up hill, rather than it doing the work. I finally took a look at my front tires (duh me) and they were pretty bald, little or no tread left.

Well I took off one of the tires, took it to Lowe's - where I purchased my mower - and tried to find a similar tire. Nope, not happening. Finally asked at the Help Desk and was informed the tire wouldn't help - they needed the model number of my mower, which of course I didn't have, for hecks sake I brought in the damn tire, couldn't they figure it out ..... nope, guess they couldn't - and then they could give me a price and ORDER it.

Anyhoo, came home got my model number googled it and found the tire I needed - this was easier than driving back to Lowe's gas prices and all. Looked on Ebay and thought prices were kind of high so checked Amazon and got two tires for what 1 was listed for on Ebay. Ordered using my Amazon Prime, got my tires within 2 business days, installed and now that baby will go uphill again. Now I can put of buying a riding mower for another season!!

Happy Mowing!

Yes, new wheels, and if you got the right ones for your model lawn mower, the old ones will come off and these will go on easily.
What ticks me off is that they don't last. I bought my mower here on Amazon in 2012, 4 years ago, and this is the 2nd time I am replacing the front wheels. Granted, the wear depends on how much attention you pay to disengaging the drive while turning or going slowly, but even with a 15 year old operator who never lets go of the clutch handle, they should last longer than 2 seasons.

Found these replacement wheels on Amazon. The price was comparable to other sources. They arrived in two days using Prime. So happy for that. They fit perfectly. Installation was a breeze. Maybe took 5 minutes. Just remove one bolt. Plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it if you question your mechanical abilities. If you can pump your gas you can replace your worn out lawn mower wheels.

Product is an exact fit. The other side of the wheel is an exact match also. I'm including a picture of the out side of the wheel so anyone can match it up. It's a solid plastic wheel with the black rubber tire tread attached to it. Just like the original equipment. Taking the wheels off is easy and just a suggestion, some may want to put never seez on the axle. Mine was a little rusted from 6 years of use. My model is a TB260 front wheel drive.

First - I give credit for my purchase to R. Badger's review. He mentioned that these are an updated part with a metal bearing sleeve and that's exactly the kind of detail I was looking for. The original plastic housing starts to wear first. Then the slop becomes greater where the plastic wheel gear meets the metal self-propel mechanism gear. So the tire begins to fall apart from the inside and the outside.
Aside from that, the part number in my manual doesn't have the "C" at the end, but they're identical to the ones I removed. And for what it's worth, these may have been a 2-pack at one time, but the current price is for a single wheel.
Cheers!

Very good quality- fits my Troy-Bilt model 12A-A26M011 perfectly- has 53 cog teeth. Never found this Part number cross referenced from 753-08087
front wheels, which are more expensive on Amazon and other sites. Glad I ordered these and would order again.

I expected a crap Chinese knock-off of my worn through wheels. Nope! These are top shelf. What a difference a load more traction makes! A+

A special thanks to Dave's lawnmower parts g4ss2rhywhcy4j7@marketplace.amazon.com
For looking up my mower and helping me order replacement parts. He certainly deserves your business.

Fantastic, economical replacement for worn troy-bilt front self-propelled lawn mowers. My model specified a slightly different model than the one ordered. But it fits just the same. The tires I had on the front of my mower were bald, but it still propelled forward. With these, the mower pulls me along. Great find! Not sure what the models that cost $25 each tire do, but these feel durable, sturdy, and are an exact fit.

If I burn through these, I'm going to purchase another pair and keep mowing!

These are the front drive wheels for a Troy-bilt self-propelled lawn mower. They are gear-driven with the inside of the wheel containing the gear. My original wheels (almost 10 years old) had worn down the tread so they would only slip on the grass, instead of pulling the mower. These were the exact replacement wheels for the original wheels. Replacement was very easy, as there is only the axle bolt mounting the wheel to the mower. I replaced both wheels in less than 5 minutes total! I would recommend the axle bolts be cleaned and sprayed with WD-40 before reinstalling, otherwise the mower is now as good as new.

This fixed my Troy Bilt mower issue of the front drive wheels not turning. There are plastic teeth on the inner wheel that stripped out. Took less than 5 minutes to install both wheels. The drive gears are metal, so they were not damaged. My 10 year old mower is self propelling again for under $25
