I finally finished restoring a pair of front wheels off an old SEARS CUSTOM I had bought off Ebay. - 4.80X4.00-8
This is the finished product. I will post "before" pics if the guy I bought them from finds me a picture.
I forgot to take some pics. When I get them on the tractor I will post a pic too.

I had them sand blasted and then I primed and painted them, installed new Case bearings, new greese zerks, and new Deestone 3 rib-tires and tubes.

Mike: Those look sweet! Nice paint job too.I didn't know Deestone made the tri-ribs. So are these tires a different size tire than would normally go on our stock rims? If you don't mind me askin' where did you get the Deestone tri-ribs? The Firestone ones are nice, but mighty pricey.

Rich, I've gotten Deestone here, he's a dealer which is hard to find local. My last purchase of two 4 ply tires were cheaper even with shipping than anything 2 ply local to me.

P.S. Tire and wheels look great

Those wheels look awefully like the impossible to find wheels that many of us are trying to find for 180,120,190 restorations. Can you be more specific on what they came off (year, model, etc.)?

Fronts for the 226 ?

What's with the Power Red Rims.

Wondering :trink:

Stewart :canada: :drinkbuddies:
My 226 has those big wheels on the back that are Power Red so I painted to match. Otherwise I would have had to do the rear wheels to and they were new and I have no need to repaint them.

Thank you Rich. I was very impressed with how they turned out to, considering the cold weather and rattle cans. :wink:
Yes they are a different size, roughly 1.5" taller and 2" narrower. I bought the tires from a small place on
ebay - Seller: Member id: k-morrow. $55.00 for a pair of 4-ply tires and tubes. I liked the Deestone because they had a smaller center rib than the Firestone and I thought it looked nicer. :thumbup:

All I have for info is the following.
On each side of the wheel there is a stamp that looks like a shield with a "S" in the middle of it. Probably meaning Sears. Years 1964-66 or so.
This is from the listing on ebay... THIS PART CAME OFF OF A SEARS CUSTOM MODEL # 917.99820. IT HAD A 6HP TECUMSEH (HORIZONTAL SHAFT) ENGINE IN IT. MODEL # 143566242 SERIAL # 6174 04826.

I hope that helps.
Mike

Sweet Mike :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I think the 4" rims give the Tri-Ribs a way better look :trink: , I would like to get a set for my Sno-Hogs.

Nice job painting with the Rattle Can, lots of Shine. :thumbsup: :trink:

Mike - nice weight bracket for the rear - I am looking to add some weights to my 446, can you send or attach some pics of what you did and how you mounted it to the rear with out taking off the sleeve hitch. I have a sleeve hitch on mine and I would love to be able to keep it on for the winter and still be able to mount weights over the top of it. Nice setup and neat looking 226
