so to lubutas farm equiptment repair in hermany and see what they have, They have a tractor junk yard so ur bound to find something. Idk of cub cadet wheels will work. if they have the same bolt patern then lubutas will have them
Geez I grew up about 3 mi from Labudas and I bought a zero turn from there back when I had 4 acres to mow. I always thought they had a bunch of newer tractors there but none of the old stuff. I could be wrong. Thanks for the tip. I struck out at Kubricks out this way. I knew he had panzers but he wasn't selling any parts off them.

My T102 uses the 5 on 4 1/2" bolt pattern but uses a 9/16" bolt. Rims off a Ford Ranger (at least the older ones) and several other vehicles will bolt on but the holes need to be drilled out from 1/2" to 9/16"

Dean, i just checked those wheels, I didn't know but my Dad has plans for them already
Plus I just struck out at Labuda's so I'm going to get the set from Dandy. Sigh. Probably would find them for a lot less if I wanted to wait.
BTW, Labuda's didn't have really anything back past the 80's let alone the 60's. Though looking through all that stuff I think about how ironic it is that the stuff a lot of us are collecting is from that period of time. Back then, these things sat outside or in damp barns or basement garages. They never wore out but fell victim to rust and rot. Then came along the mowers made out of pressed sheet metal and plastic. They rusted or rotted very little but the parts wore out by design and weren't really worth fixing.
The people who had the old panzers and cubs and wheel horses, etc probably thought that tractors would be a lot better as time passed and had no idea what they had then...
