I used 15 inch dodge caravan space saver spare tire rims for my narrow front projects. These have the correct bolt pattern (5 on 4 1/2) and are narrow enough for a 6.70x 15 inch ag tread tire. All you have to do is torch out the center flange and they bolt right up. Here is a picture of what those rims look like on the tractor. [img] /club2/attach/tractormike/IMG_1036.JPG [/img]

The larger tires do increase ground speed but on both of the ones I built I changed the pullies to slow it down to close to the original speed. On the massey I put a smaller pulley on the motor and the allis got a larger pulley on the tranny. The allis is a little slower than stock. I haven't tried plowing snow but I know that going up a sand hill with the massey it pulled quite well.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
