    Solid rims.

    I have a new holland that is need of new tyres,my rims are too narrow so i will need to get rims.Its adding a nice bit of extra cost to the job, when you add on the price of the tyres. It's a 13 year old tractor,its hard to justify ,but i am not in a position to sell it, so new tyres it is.
    My own rims are 15 x38 and 12x28 and i need 18x38 and 15x28 for 580/70 and 480/70 tyres.
    I have tried a few breakers this side of the water,and there doesn't seem to be many about.
    I was just wondering has anyone made there own set of solid rims,or get a local engineer to make a set by putting a solid disc into an outer rim?
    Proper solid rims with pressed centres are big money,not really justifiable ,for the volume of work that the tractor will be doing.

    You could also widen the rim. That's splitting and put a length in between.

    A tm 125,it makes it a bit more awkward to find a complete rim,as the 125 has small rear and front hubs.I suppose i could bolt my centres to euro banded style rims which are common on TM's ,but they are hard to come by second hand,at the minute it looks like new is the only option.I won't panic yet.
    I wouldn't be in favour of widening my own rims.

    Try George coles tractors. They have alot of rims on EBAY. You will find it hard to find the smaller centres but I reckon they would have a set of rims to bolt your centres to. James at BWT is also very helpfull.

    Widening has to be done properly ofcourse, surely a big metalshop could do the job.

    John, try agrigear; genuine rims are a fortune. I bought a set off them for the front of the 7740 as it had succumbed to the dreaded Nh rim rott.

    Massey,Class and I think JD centres will fit the rears on yours won't they? Will the late 40 series and TS front rims fit that front axle? I can't think why they wont. 150 upwards had the larger front hub didn't they.

    I would say the late 40's and Ts both front and rear are exchangeable with the smaller TMs
