Anyone know suitable steel rim/wheel suppliers?

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen, I've recently lost a wheel due to severe rust, and now must search for a replacement rim... The tires on these rims are 23 x 8.5 - 12, and I know from talking with a retail outlet that the "- 12" refers to the wheel diameter. From measuring the wheel's bolt spacing, it's 5 bolts on a 4.5" diameter circle. I must find a supplier for these unusual (or not so unusual?) rims, but have searched 14 suppliers without luck. I'll keep searching, but if you happen to know of one who specifically can supply the above time rims, I would greatly appreciate your help. Torin...

I think that is kind of a standard size wheel on garden tractors. Put an ad in your local paper saying you will haul away non-running garden tractors. You might be surprised what you get. Dan

Any Lawn Equipment dealer, Your Simplicity dealer. Ebay etc. A local lawn mower repair shop might just have some used ones. 23" is the tire diameter 8.5" is the wheel width. There are some just listed in the ebay forum.

UCD, it did not show up in blue so I did not realize it was a hot link. Thanks - Dan
