Aftermarket Rims

Postby PoconoCub » Wed Aug 17, 2022 11:39 am

I purchased 2 Aftermarket Rims for my 48 Super A and they were delivered today, but when I looked at the mounting loops they are round instead of Square. Can I use 4 bolts, nuts & lock washers to hold them to the centers and what length would I need?

I can't remember the length I used on mine but remember the 4 on the right side will be longer than the 4 on the left because of the cast center vs. steel center.

I know about the different lengths per side, I guess I will have to un-bolt both side and put the aftermarket rims up to the centers and see what length I will need.

If they are like the Cub aftermarket rims, you’ll want to use carriage head bolts.

Are these rims not right or am I doing something wrong? I can only get 1 Bolt in the rest are off and I can't get the bolts in.

Looks like the radius of the bolt holes in the rims is larger than that of the centers. How much are the lugs offset from the center of the rim? You probably have Cub rims. People have made them fit, but they are not really interchangeable.

Have you got a pointer to an online listing for your new rims?

I spoke to RAParts and they are sending me 2 New one's from a different manufacturer that has the square loops, hopefully, they will work better even though these are supposed to be SA replacement rims.

This is what mine looked like for the 140, I got these from A & I and had no problems.

Were you able to use the Square head bolts or did you have to get new bolts? If you did do you remember the sizes?

I found this extra one in the toolbox from the left side. It would be the shorter one, it's 5/8 x 2 3/4" FINE thread. Notice the head is really thick and has wrench flats, which I had to use to tighten them. I think for the right side I used grade 8 hex head but I'll have to look to make sure.

Slim140, I am looking for bolts like your picture, with the key under the head. Do you have a source for them? That length would work for me. Somebody told me they are a Ford wheel bolt.

I don't remember where I got them and checked all the places I would have ordered from, no luck finding them.

What's the name on the bolt head? Looks like D DOCAN?
