Rear rims

Postby ReTractor » Sat Feb 16, 2013 7:22 pm

I'm ready to order two new rear rims for my lo boy. I see TM doesn't have them any more- unless I missed something. So I need some advice on where to get them. I'm looking for new, I don't want to have to paint them, ( they should be silver i think) and I want to load the tires The ones on there now are rotting (not the tires- the rims) from the inside out. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Catalogs dealing in tractor supplies usually have Cub rims listed. Steiner and Valu-bilt have the rims listed.

You might try you local tractor dealerships, any make as well as the local tire shops. Tire shop may be the best place, specially if you are going to have them load the tire with ballast.

Just guessing that new rims will not have a finish coat of paint, only primer.

As frugal as I am, I would purchase solid used rims, clean up and paint myself.
I have an excuse. CRS.

New rims here are $110.00 now, they are not like the originals. You can not get the originals any more. If you have a Farm Coop there they should be able to get them for you

Don't load them with calcium chloride,or you'll have the same rotted rim problem,again. Either use the new, non corrosive fluids, or use wheel weights. (I use old automotive anti freeze, or you could use camper water system antifreeze.) Ed

Concur. Our local tire dealer (Les Schwab) loads 'em with beet juice. Evidently it doesn't corrode.

My local NAPA can get most any rim you want for farm stuff. I have been lucky enough to never have to pay shipping on any large items too.
