My tractor has a 6 bolt rear wheel. I was told they are filled probably calcium cloride. There's a very slow leak in one side. I'm going to take it down clean and replace the tube and reload with rv antifreeze. If I find a damaged wheel what will fit the tractor?

#1, I would do some research on removing that calcium chloride. Nasty stuff.

#2, on the wheel repair (if needed), I had both back wheels on one of my FF's rusted through on the inside. I found a pair of donor 5 hole wheels and made a cut near center. Just welded those back on the FF wheel. They are doing fine. I'll see if I can find the thread.

 

Here it is.

Take that wheel to an ag tire repair shop.  They are equipped to handle Calcium Chloride.  Use a vacuum pump to suck it out.  Like Kenny said, that is nasty stuff.

Ditto on the above, NOT worth the health risk ! If you get a measurement of your bolt hole centers, that would allow follow up to fitment , I'm going guess six bolt 12" GT wheels are the same (guessing)
I have several LF Bolens 6 bolt 12" rims if you have to go that route and they fit I can most likely help. (Shipping $ may suck)

The bolt pattern is 6 on 6". Inside hole is right at 4-5/8". Might be able to get the offsets after a bit.

I just measured my Massey Ferguson 1855 wheels today after reading this post, they are 6 lug 6" bolt pattern, the center hole measures 4 and 9/16" as close as I can get with the tape measure. Hope it helps.
