I was told Never steel wheels on speedex, BUT, this summer at Portland was a very early S model with only forward and reverse case and a implement lift (which most had) that had steel wheels all around. fronts were probly type used on the hit and miss engine dolleys at shows and rears looked homemade with angle iron on some sort of center. Was all rusty and stuck, non orig engine and it was stuck too and fella wanted $200 cause he thought was early one on steel. I wanted to buy, but my $50 offer didn't stand! Later it went by my sales area with someone pulling on a cart. He said $185 was price and just wanted the wheels!! There were other speedex of same model, maybe even better for little as $200, which past us running and driving, owner walking beside it? and most around $400 for some fair shape. Those early ones have little for trans/brake or lifts, I don't care for them.
You should visit speedextractorinformation.org to learn of them. Lots of history and pictures there.
