I have an extra set of rims and tires (matching completely) that I would like to use as duals on my 1980 sears lt10-36.

This is my pride and joy, my first tractor. I have done a lot with it and to it. Now its used once and awhile to mow just to run it. I want to put duals on it because its been a dream of mine since I first got it.

I know they make a dual kit for the larger 12inch rims, this has 8 inch rims. The larger kit comes with 8 bolts, and two rubber disks. The rubber disks get sandwiched between the rims.


What I'm looking for is the 8inch rubber disks to do this. I can't find them any where. I'm sure some one makes them.

Those tiny axles are going to hate you.

I'm sure you are aware those axels aren't designed for duals, but if you want to just for giggles, do you have an old set of junk tires? Most tires, you should be able to cut the bead off carefully with a good knife.

This thing lives a life of leisure, no hard jobs any more so extra strain won't be a problem.

I don't have any extra junk tires around.
