Wanted to pass this on to everyone. Found a deal on new 8" x 5.5" wheels, 3/4" bore, with new bearings at www.surpluscenter.com for $5.99 each!!! The color is black but no big deal to paint them. Only drawback I found was they don't have the 2 holes drilled in them to mount front wheel weights but I bet if you had a transfer punch and a drill press bet you could replicate them pretty easy. Picked up a pair and gonna put a set of 16x6.50x8 tri ribs on them. Anyways, just thought I'd pass it on.

If anyone gets some of these please let me know what the width of out side of bearing to bearing is. Want to make sure they are not to wide to fit my spindle

thank you  Bill

Good deal ! There was a thread about culitpackers and someone mentioned using GT wheels to build one ,  this would be a nice start

Man, I wonder what my Sears rims measure? I am getting new tires soon and that would be great to be able to just swap out new rims/tires without having tractor down long for mounting.
