Hi Everyone.
I recently brought home my latest aquistion, a 1958 460 utility backhoe. The plan was to use it around my yard, however it has a few issues. No brakes, Power STeering not working and one rear rim is junk. I am not worried about fixing the brakes or steering, it does not appear too difficult, however I am concerned about the rear rim. Where does one get one of these? I searched the web, but I did not have much luck. I figure I am not looking in the right places. Does this rim have a generic size I can measure or does it fit many different types of tractors? I am in the dark on this one, can anyone shed some light on what else fits or where to look for one?
Thanks

The tires are 16 x 24 and the rims are not like the earlier tractors, that is it not just an outer hoop. The problem with the rear rim is the lug bolts loosened up at one time and egg shaped all the holes. The PO welded washers on the lug bolt holes to make them round again, but this did not hold and now half the washers have broken off the welds. I wonder if this was the wrong wheel to begin with and that is why is got ruined.

I will try to get a picture of them. The tire are 16.9 x 24 my mistake. I also just noticed the hub where the lugbolts go into looks to be damaged/modified also. Any idea where to get one of these?
Thanks,
JWR
