Any recommendations, for replacement 9X28 six loop rims for a Ford 9n?

Widely available in aftermarket. 

Try local tractor dealers or parts houses like Steiner, or Valu-Bilt.

About $150 each.

That's what I can get them for local, Steiner is about the same, I'll have to look up value built, there are some on eBay around the $100 mark, should I be weary of those, I am gonna be loading these with calcium.

These are the ones in question,
Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/320838001580
They're 10X28 but shouldn't be an issue with 11.2-28 tires.

That looks to be a deal

Back before I switched jobs last June I was a truck driver running all over the state of Missouri and I went right by a few places that had tractor parts and/or salvage yards.  Couple of years back my Ferguson TO-30 needed a rim and that Ebay one you linked to is the exact rim I bought.  Got it at Cook tractor Salvage in Clinton, MO.  Gave $150 which I thought was a little salty but being ag use there was no sales tax and no shipping since I picked it up in the company truck when I was going right by the place.  

I wouldn't be weary about the Ebay ones.   I imagine they all come from the same place - probably an import. 

Seems I remember a tag on mine that it was made in Mexico but its been a couple of years and I may have my wires crossed. 

On the Fergie I had to grind the slightest of notch in the center wheel disk where the loop lays to get it to lay flat.  You can't even see the notch it was so slight.  You may or may not have to do that with the Ford wheel center.

I'd say go for it.

About 7 years ago I needed new tires for my Ford 2000. A place on Epay(I think it may have been out of TN or KY) sold me rear tires on rims for less than what the tire cost around here. It pays to shop around. Good Luck, Rick

Don't know about the rim but I sure would not use calcium chloride in any tire any more.  That stuff is nasty and eats on metal worse than anything else.  Several other choices that will give you the added weight and a lot less caustic.  RV antifreeze, windshield washer fluid, beat juice are just a few.

I was waiting for someone to bring this up, if you use washer fluid, rv antifreeze or the like the tire companies around here won't touch the tractor until it's drained, that leaves rimguard and calcium, I've heard now that rimguard(beet juice)has been in use for awhile now that they are finding that it makes a huge mess when a leak occurs, we have 3 tractors here with calcium in them and have never had to replace a rim, maintenance and cleaning up leaks in a timely manner goes a long way.

When I needed wheels for the 850 Ford (over grown 8N) and tires the local Firestone dealer was able to provide them. Don't remember the cost but at the time I thought it was reasonable.

Already checked that route, my local tire place no longer has a source.
