PT1850 Wheel Adapters

PT1850 Wheel Adapters

JJ was kind enough to let us know about a good deal on some turf 24 x 12-12 Tires and Rims. I purchased them for the tires only but then I realized I have always wanted more clearance for tractor chains so I decided to use the rims as well. I did not want to have to take the tires off and then remount them so I went with a bolt on solution instead of a weld on solution. Here are pictures of the new tires which are pretty nice 4-ply turfs. Also shown is a picture of the wheel motor hub (one stud is removed):

Here is a CAD drawing I did after I built the project as well as a finished wheel adapter:

Here is the new rim with socket clearance holes drilled since the adapter plate will be “inside” of the wheel:

This picture shows the plate attached with carriage bolts utilizing the square wheel weight holes in tyhe new rim:

Here is the wheel installed:

And here you can see the added clearance (8″ instead of ~1″):
