They make 12 inch aluminum trailer rims. Shouldn't be to hard to find one that will fit.

Why do you want aluminum rims on a tractor?
I have an excuse. CRS.

Preparing for the infamous “ran when parked” scenario. That way the rims don’t rust away! :lol:

Most people are adding weight to the front wheels of their tractor. You seem to be going the other direction. Lightweight cub!

Not so easy. The ft rims are supported on the hub. Finding a wheel with the correct bolt spacing and the right ctr hole is tough. I have been trying
to find a pair of 15" rims for my high clearance Cub.
