Hello everyone. We are restoring a McCormick-Deering 15-30. It's needing mostly a good cleaning and some cosmetic work as it had been previously restored 15 years ago, but unfortunately sat for most of that time.

We have some rubber lugs on the rear wheels to replace the metal spikes, enabling it to run on city streets, but the front wheels are still bare metal. I've had no luck searching the internet for rubber cover options or lugs or ? for the front wheels.

Anyone with a similar issue that they can direct me to the right place?

Thanks!

I have a Farmall F14 and shown is how I fitted rubber to the wheels. I was fortunate to be able to purchase some 5/8" conveyor belt already cut to the required width and cut grooves in the top side with a wood working 1/2" router. I secured the bands to the wheels using contact glue and self drilling hex head TEK screws. The screws, for the front wheels went into counterbored holes and the rear wheels, screwed through the grooves. If the photo is enlarged, the screws can be seen better.

Regards,
John
