Front Rims

Recommended Posts

steve-wis
On my Allis 810GT I have 15X6-6 front tires. I want to put tri-ribs on but can't find any that fit that rim. Is there a rim from a different tractor that can be made to fit the tractor and take a tri-rib that is available? Would have to be about 15 inch tall, but width is not an issue, if they are narrower I can make spacers to position them on the spindles. Any suggestions? Thanks! Steve

Steve - The "axle" shaft on your tractor spindles are the same diameter and length as used on both the old Broadmoor series AND the large frame (Landlord/sovereign) series. So you can use the thinner wheels from a Broadmoor, or you can use the 8" wheels (with real bearings) from a large frame tractor, either the thinner wheel from older tractors or the wide wheel from later Landords. That will give you plenty of options to choose from! Tom

Just keep in mind most non Simp/Allis brands use a wider bearing placement. I just did a project to make a set of deere wheels fit. Had to grind 3/8" off both the inner and outer lips.
