Due to the length of the old thread I was finding people were not even taking a look at the product so I have decided to compile all the info in the thread and start a new thread


What I have is, made to order, double bead locks in 15, 16, 16.5, 17, and 20” sizes. 18's and 22's available soon! These are the most common sizes but I am capable of doing other sizes to accommodate agriculture tires in many different sizes.

Since these rims are made to order I can put any bolt pattern in the rim you want. SO if you want 52’s on your Cub Cadet I can build the wheel for it.

Multiple bolt patterns also available on the same rim for when you plan to upgrade your axles. Some combinations of bolt patterns just cant be done but when possible I can pilot the second bolt pattern so it will only need to be drilled to a larger size to work with a new axle. Many times the ID will require machining but it is an option worth considering .



A little about this design of wheel and what I am doing different.

I am using HDPE pipe instead of PVC thanks to "jasonmt"
It is more flexible than PVC and can not crack under certain conditions such as in cold weather or during a hard hit. Also the inserts are one piece and will fit into a tire without having to cut it into two halves. For rims that are too wide to fit a one piece insert in the tire, I use two full circle inserts that sit side by side and are tongue and grooved into one another to prevent them from shifting.

I am using two full plates for the wheel center, this allows me more options when drawing center designs as well as giving me the ability to do some 3D affects without compromising strength. Most centers are ¼” steel but some designs use 5/16” plates when the design has allot of material missing. This gives me either ½” or 5/8” total center thickness.

The plates are held together by 24, 32, or 36 bolts. The bolts are all 3/8” grade 8, yellow zinc plated, as well as the washers and nuts, and the nuts are nyloc nuts. The rims are chamfered to 60 deg. Unless otherwise requested. Rockwell rims are chamfered to a 90 deg. taper to a large dia. of 1-3/8”. Torque specs. For the bolts are 25-30 lbs. This is not set in stone but more of a guideline. Typically I just set the impact to a lower setting and run them all about the same. I feel it is most important to just have them tight to where they will not allow the plates to shift or the o-ring to not seal.

I am using a 1/8” o-ring to seal the wheels instead of silicone.

Since these rims are made to order customers have the option of drafting up there own center design. The price may or may not change when you draft up your own center. If you have an idea for a center design, just let me know and I can see what I can come up with for a center design.

For you guys that want wide wheels that are not listed, the truth is anything is possible, so if you want a rim not shown below it is possible but some rims will require different methods of construction which will add to the cost of the wheel. Every situation is different, but if someone wants a wheel extra wide or with a extreme backspacing it is possible but doing it without adding cost is not always an option.



Currently I have a wait period of around 6 weeks. I am always doing new things to try and get turn around time down and the plan is to get down to around 2-3 weeks turn around time by this summer. I am building new jigging for quicker and more consistent setup, as well as fixtures to make parting and grooving quicker and cleaner. Along with this I am also working on a fully automated welding positioner.

20x9-11 285$ ea. most any back spacing


Rock rings
All weld are ground and sanded smooth and low spots are filled in with weld
Rock rings can be added to the order at any time until they are shipped

15” rims 50$ installed
16-16.5” rims 55$ installed
17” rims 60$ installed
20” rims 65$ installed


Rims will be shipped truck freight unless time becomes an issue. I feel truck freight does a better job of getting them to customers unharmed. It is a little tougher to throw a pallet off the back of a truck rather than a cardboard box.


As for design most any of the center designs can be made to fit in most any of the sizes of rims. 15's are obviously the most limiting.

As with any set of rims be sure to check torque on lug nuts often for first couple hundred miles. Nobody likes to have a wheel fall off!!

Because of the time and additional costs it would take, we do not test each rim for leaks and without adding additional costs we can not guarantee against leaks at the welds. Also we can not be held responsible for any damge to your vehicle or equipment due to a leaky wheel. We do do everything we can to avoid any problems but with the volume of rims made we are bound to have some problems. Less than 1% of rims have been found to have leaks so far, so it is not a big concern, but something to be aware of.
It is recommended that all rims be checked for leaks when first mounted!
If a rim is found to have a leak please do notify me so that we can find out why and put more attention to preventing leaks on future rims. Also when notifying me we can disscuss the best way to fix the problem, and if there is anything I can do from here.
I will always be more than willing to fix the problems here if you wish to ship them back.

Also does anyone know how to post pics now that they changed the forum a little?
I would liek to have the last two pics as well as some others show up as pics and not attachments.

thanks,
John
I fixed it for you John with the following steps:

Edit
Right click on the attachment
Left click Properties
Copy the url
Click the image Icon
Paste the url
Click ok
Repeat for each attachment.

For some reason anytime there are more than one, you will have to go back and edit with this techique to have them visable in the post.

Devin loves the wheels and tires. I figured I would show you what they llok like on if you haven't already seen it. Not a crawler but cool non-the-less.




Hey, I saw that truck in Gulf Shores Memorial Day week, very nice!

The rims are actually double beadlocks. they are 20x12's.
When I mounted them for him, I did put inserts in them as a safty feature.
He got everything already mounted. The rims are a little differant than most in that they are a medium duty rim but I machined the inside of the outer half to get any marks left from when the rim was roled. A couple light passes cleans it right up.

I think the tires are one of the coolest looking of all the military tires. I was able to find them for him in brand new shape! They are 395/85R20's so they are the 46's.
I may be able to get one more set of new ones if someone realy wants them.
