I know it's a little late to post it, but I finally got around to getting pictures of it. I only have pictures of one of them because the other one isn't finished yet. I am slowly working on restoring my Copar Panzer T55 and he was kind enough to take my rims, sand them, paint them and even put new ag tires on them. I could only find one picture of how they looked before and the front tires are on top of them. The paint on them was still really good but obviously needed redone. He told me that when he was wire wheeling them that there was yellow dust everywhere. He did a great job painting them and they will look great when I finish it.

Unfortunately, the tractor isn't anywhere close to being done and ready to be put back together yet.

 

I will admit that I that I thought he might have been painting my rims for me when I opened the trunk of his car and they were in it and there were cans of yellow spray paint in the back seat. I never expected the tires to come with them as part of a present.

I'll trade you my two brothers for your one. You'd be getting the worst of it. Do something nice for him. Good Luck, Rick
