Mounting 12.2x24 AG's on my int154

Postby BigBill » Sat Feb 19, 2011 2:26 pm

I want to raise up my 154 project tractor by using 650-10 3rib tires on the front and putting 12.2x24 ag's on the rear. I have two brand new 10" x 24" 4 loop farmall A rims and two fcub rim center. My plan is to elongate the 4-holes in the rim centers to fit the 10" A rims, then take 4 -2"x3" square blocks with the holes to weld then to the rim centers to stiffen up the area were i slotted the holes. Once i fit the rim centers to the 10" rims of course. I know the rim centers need to fit tight in the rims too. The only thing the bolts do is to hold the rim center to the rim and all the forces and weight is on the rim center to rim fit. These bolts are in shear but there way stronger in this position than what there limits are in shear. I'm going to stiffen up my front axle and change the hubs too and maybe add power steering which i already have it figured out. My FEL and backhoe will be a tad larger than most tractors of this size. My problem is i need the most ground clearance for the rear subframe that i can have and the 12,2x24 ag's should do it. as soon as it warms up were off and building again. I want to use the machine off road too. Bill
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

The wider rim will open up the tire at its full width. The side walls are designed to be vertical not rounded thinner than the tire. Bill

I may look for the 11.2x24 ag's first. I think i seen them for $149 each.
