    Wow! At a minimum, I think you'll need a new wheel and probably new lug nuts. Hopefully the studs are still OK, but check them carefully.

    I dont see how the studs could be any good either.. yes to all of your questions, I would start at The dealer. You are supposed to check the tightness upon putting the tractor in service and every 50 hours. A lot of guys don't, and everything is fine, But this time everything was not fine. I don't see how anything but the tire can be salvaged. good luck

    If a break down isn't going to cost you alot of money or kill you, I might try some big thick washers. Take off the nuts, put the washers on and then the nuts, and then tighten and hope the washers bend into a rough taper to take up the slack and roughly centre the wheel holes on the studs.
    I also add maybe a third to the torque spec to help keep things tight and hope you don't snap a stud.
    I found a couple lug nuts I could turn a half turn at my 50hr service which surprised me, but I guess that's why you're supposed to check.

    I know that oversize lug nuts are available in certain sizes for just such an occasion. Whether they are available for your tractor I can't say. You would need to take a lug nut to your local NAPA type store or tractor repair mech. and match it up.

    I second the vote for the washers, maybe even make a stack of 3 of different od's weld them together then grind them into an arc. That will be a whole lot cheaper than new rims and might back the nuts off the studs far enuff to get good thread.

    New wheel or good used wheel, in this case you will probably have stress cracking in the wheel you now have. lug nuts all need replacing.
    At least see the dealer, and get the proper rim size, then google for a replacement.

    The washer idea may work in the short term but I would get some new rims on order and swap out when they come in. The rim center hole should be very tight to the tractor hub and it looks like yours is wallowed out a bit. That should be where the weight is carried with the nuts just holding the rim tight to the hub,
    You will need new studs and new rims, so rather than take a chance on damaging the wheel hub, get the new rim now and replace it.
    Check all the bolts now to make sure they are tight.
    This reminds me that I need to check mine with a wrench, rather than just visually as I have about 50 hours on it now.

    Last year I happened to notice that a couple of nuts had backed off (fallen off!) of one front wheel on my Kioti DK45. I was lucky that the others were still tight, so no damage to the wheel. I finally found some with the same thread at the local kubota dealer, but the head is a different size so I have to use two different sockets when I check the torque!
    I don't think it would hurt to try the washer-cone approach others have suggested...if it doesn't work out, you can still go to a bunch of new parts.

    If this vehicle did 50 you would have to replace, but my neighbor who is a mechanic for the state parks had a large deer back hoe in with the same problem. The holes were worse, but he got some plate, cut it down, drilled a hole and welded it on.

    He also advised the owner to start looking for a new used rim, but felt the fix would hold a long time.
