I bought a pair of old Firestone 5.00-12 tires and was going to put them on a standard 5-lug EWC 12x5 rim and they are just too wide for the tire.

The tires are old and weathered but they are still holding together for now. I have too much into them for being old used tires and was hoping I could find a narrower rim so I could still use them.

Would anyone here a pair of something narrower they would be willing to part with?

Thanks Mike. Mine are 5" between the bead. If you can measure through one of the holes in the rim

...to the first step. You'll have to somewhat guess but I'm guessing the next size down would be about 3 3/4" at the bead. Even if you can measure the outside to outside we could still compare it that way. Mine are 6" total width.

If your rims have a tire on them the tire size should give you an idea the rim width.  In other words, if the tire is 5.00 or close to it it's probably the rim he needs.

I'm guessing you're looking for used wheels.  If new is an option I suspect THIS is what you're looking for.

Generally the correct rim size measured inside to inside of the rim flanges will be about one inch less then the tire width.  As an example an 8-24 tire would use a seven inch wide rim.  A 7-24 tire would use a six inch wide rim.

I assumed a 12x4 rim would be the correct size for a 5.00-12, not sure if there was anything narrower. Thanks for the link to Miller. Those are right, just out of my reach.

I'd have to check my inventory but I might have a pair of 4" wide rims.I just need to make sure I have enough for the tractors I have.

I checked on mine today and they appear to be 3-4" wide with 5-12 tires mounted on them. I think w found a match. PM me.
