I am trying to find a pair of 10" X 3" rims/wheels to fit the front of a JD 140H3 to balance out with the 26 X 12 X 12 ags on the back.  I don't use the tractor for mowing anymore so tearing up the lawn is not an issue.

 

Thanks in advance.

That's a pretty narrow wheel. I'm wondering if a 10" wheelbarrow wheel would be 3" wide. You can get them with 3/4' bearings if that's what your 140 has for axles. The later 300 series tractors are 1"axles but you can get 1" flange bearings to fit those rims as well.

Brian,

They are 1" axles.  I have thought about putting rear axle hubs similar to those on a Sears Suburban, on it without the key after drill and tapping a hole for a grease fitting but figure the would be some major wear on the spindles that way.  I have found new 10" X 3.5" four bolt wheels for around $30 each.

 

Thanks,

Bill

You could run a narrow 5.70x8 tire like was standard on the front of the early Bolens large frame tractors. They are 18 inches tall. The Bolens had either 26x12-12 or 27 inch tall 15 inch rear tires. You can get that size as a trailer tire. I have several wheels and trailer tires are here that size.

Here is my Bolens 1250 large frame with factory 26x12-12 rear tires and factory 18 inch tall 5.70x8 front tires.

Still looking for a tri rib tire though.  What size is the front spindle on your Bolens?

 

Thanks.

My 1250 has 3/4 but they switched to 1 inch later in production.
