I have just bought out a REO dealer.  :thumbs:

 

You want the solid tread.  What size tires do you have?  Are they smooth tread tires or do the have a texture to them?

Mike, I'll dig through a box and look.  I don't show anything under that part number, but 80% of my solid treads don't have a part number.

bare metal. what a fun project.

Mike, I have had no luck on those tires.  I took the measurements you had sent me and checked what I have.  I have one that seems to be close, but they are rough terrain tread, not what the Royale would have used.

 

I will keep my eyes open for you.

Thanks Ben

Would you have the complete wheels with tires? I would be willing to buy them.

Sorry if I asked you this already.

Do you happen to have a part number for those? 

 

I have some complete wheels and tire assemblies.  I'll pull the manual tomorrow and check if you don't know the number.
