Rim replaced. Wheww!

Postby Smokeycub » Mon Sep 01, 2014 9:19 pm

I picked up a Super C back in March. One rear rim was pretty badly rusted and about two months ago it let go. It sounded like a gun went off when it blew :shock: I've been looking even since for a reasonably priced used rim in good shape. I'm here to tell you they don't seem to exist. I found one about 70 miles from my home, it was poorly repaired around the valve stem area and really looked bad even though it was painted up. The guy wanted $150, I refused to pay that much and he wasn't coming off his price. I left without it. That's when I decided to bite the bullet and get a new aftermarket rim, I got from a place near Akron (about 40 miles) for $210. I also found out there are no 11.2 x 36 inner tubes anymore so I got a 11.2 x 38 from a different place, in Akron. The guy I got the rim from happened to have a set of fenders for a C so I ended up getting those too.

Anyway here's the new rim and tire mounted on the tractor, with the "new" fenders.

I replaced the rim myself. It took a few hours to crib up the back of the tractor and get the bolts out. Another hour to dismount the tire from the rim. I bolted the new rim on the tractor then proceeded to mount the tire and tube on the rim. It actually went on very nicely, I was deeply surprised!!

The "new" cutter I picked up a while back.

The squeaky wheel may get the grease but it's usually the first to be replaced!

Some parts are really hard to find, Ray. At used prices like that maybe I need to look into selling a couple 38" rims I have. They probably aren't as hard to find as 36".

Asking isn't the same as selling, and I'll bet he still has that rim at $150, and will for a long long time.

Whoever told you 11.2x36 tubes didn't exist is full of it. Google search yields dozens of potential sources.
