I finally got the old rubber off of the 1050. One of the rims has two small spots where it has completely rusted through. Patched it with Por-15 epoxy, which may hold air, it dries very hard. If I do have to replace the rim can someone tell me what size and bolt pattern I need for the rear of a 1966 1050? While you are at it, is there anything special I need to know if I need to replace the fronts?

I have mixed up 12" wheels between brands and have only had trouble a couple of times. I think the rims on one of my Wheelhorses came off of a Bolens. Needed parts like this are why I have a bunch of parts tractors. Good Luck, Rick

Check here http://www.millertir...featured&page=3. You can order the outer rim as a blank and weld your old center in if need be. Most 5 bolt GT 12" rims are 4.5" on center holes.

Thanks Ranier, that is probably what I will do if I can get it cleaned up enough to look decent.

If you go to the miller web site,   Scroll down the menu on the left.   Under miscellaneous ,  click on FAQs.  They have a good explanation and pictures on how to determine what your rim size and offset, and bolt pattern will be.
