    Default Re: WHEEL CENTERS

    Thanks for all the info, my situation is the tractor i bought has 21.5-16.1 turf tires on a one piece rim. I'm looking for a less expensive option then buying 4 new rims with centers from the dealer. The more I look into this, and contact aftermarket distributors it seems that the 5425 and maybe the whole 5025 series being a (narrow) series has an oddball rim and center combination. I was just hoping someone may have come across a similar situation. There are centers on ebay with 8 holes and 8" from bolt to bolt through the middle of the 6" center which is what my tractor measures. It lists several tractors but not mine, so I contacted the the seller (my tractor parts) and they checked with there tech department and said they will not fit. I just want to know if some of these aftermarket options will work and are they not cross referencing because of a slight difference, which may not make a difference. Thanks

    oops am having problems here was trying to respond to Rickb's post. My bad if confusing
    I buy cataloged wheel equipment from Unverferth and have 3 custom builds on file there that we spec'ed out to replace specialty rims that are outrageously priced as OEM replacement parts. They are competitive. Freight costs suck just about any way you look at them.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    I ran into that exact issue. Found a fabricator over in East Tennessee who'd build a rear R4 rim for my 3720 at what sounded like a reasonable price. But by the time freight was added, the delivered price nearly equaled that of an OE from the dealer.
