The neighbor across the street gave me these wheels today. They are solid rubber. I'll have to get some bearings and spindles for them. I'll probably knock a race out & take a wheel down to IBT to match them up. Not sure yet what I'll use them on.

I was contemplating a mid mount grader, but with these, I could make a 3-point pull behind. Or they could go on the pull behind mower roaming around in the old brain! Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, just which way do I go?

I like solid rubber tires.  Especially around construction projects.

I think I'll stay with the mid-mount grader. Then I'll have the tractor weight to help it cut. Need to get the bearings and spindles to figure out what to do with them for sure. Maybe even a miniature tow dolly for GT's?

You should be able to find bearings at a Grasshopper dealer if that's what they were for. If not, local bearing shop should be able to set you up. Come to think of it, I have to find a set for one of our church tractor wheels, starting to get sloppy and throwing a lot of grease.
