Suggest smoothing out the patch, inside the rim. Bondo, epoxy, something to keep the weld(s) from cutting the innertube.

Tire pressure is around 20 psi. The tractor and operator's weight may add another psi and distributed evenly on the rim. Basically, there is not a lot of pressure against any one spot on the rim. Any decent patch will hold up.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I plan on using windshield wiper fluid in my tires when I load them.


You think your rims are bad you should see the frame in my 99 Wrangler tj 125 k miles on it.
They seem to be patching them with new brackets. But the frame is half the frame support for the body. The body is also part of the frame. To me being a welder you need a frame machine so you know it’s straight and parallel to the body, the only way I would do it to remove the body and fab a new frame from I beam I have. Then box it as I go.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I think the silver heat paint holds up the best to fight rust. My stove pipe outside in vt has been outside since ‘87.
