Cub Rear Wheel Differences

Postby 2cubs » Mon May 16, 2022 2:36 pm

I'm cleaning up a bunch of cub rear wheels and noticed they have different mounting bolt brackets. After cleaning I found them stamped Goodyear or Firestone. The Goodyear are fastened with 2 rivets and have a single tab for centering the wheel and the Firestones have 4 rivets and 2 tabs. Were these used on different years or just randomly dispersed though the years? First pic is Firestone, second pic Goodyear.

I don't have an answer to your question, but in the following link to TM Tractor's picture archives, you will see a different type attachment of the rear wheel to the rim:
My 48 Cub had the same 2-rivet attachment as shown in your photo of the Goodyear rims. I know Titan made rims for the cub and they had a different attachment to any of these photos.

They were both used. Firestone and Goodyear just had diffeernt styles. They both fit all model years,
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.
