What I saw on the bank of the ohio river.

Hey guys,

Yesterday I saw a M farmall with solid wheels instead of the spoked cast. Was this an option??I've seen wheels like it before but they were on pulling tractors. This was not a bad looking M but it wasn't a puller. I don't think :wink:

If a word is misspelled in the dictionary who would know? from uncle johns bathroom reader

I know M&W made "dish" type wheels like that. "9-bolts" is what they're called I think. Definitely not original. Their original intended purpose was to be used as axle duals, I think.

Yep someone's added pressed wheels for pulling. The M&W 9 bolt hubs are around a $200 item if you can snag them reasonably. :lol:

M Cast Wheels

Australian M's and AM's had solid cast wheels of at least two different sizes that I know of.
