Ya what happand?? Just age, and a little hard use? Should all us with old tractors be concerned?

Bet I have and idea what happand though. I have had it happan on my little GT's. Plowing the snow, trying to turn a bit, and the front end slides a little, crank the wheel a little more then WHOMP!! hit a bump, or rut and YANKS the wheel out of your hand!:eek: Bent a tie rod that way once. Am I close???

I wonder if there is any way to reinforce the rim? Could you weld a plate on each side to strengthen it? Probably not cost effective if they're in plentiful supply.

:what101:

I think that it is better for a cheap rim to give away first than for a tie-rod or spindle to break or bend under stress. I would not reenforce the rim for that reason.:cheers:

I agree it has to be stresses applied to the wheel in turns etc. My son tore up two wheels and cracked a third one on my old 180 JD in two summers. He used to use it to cut the neighbors grass and make a few bucks. He was to cut it once a week weather it needed it or not. In the front yard was a pretty steep bank running lengthwise of her lot, and 99% of the cutting was done with the chute directing it up to the top and on to the dirt road. It was always the left front wheel that would tear the innards out right where the bearing housing was welded into the wheel assembly. After he quit mowing her yard no more wheels got tore up.

1100 rim

I had same problem with my 1100 with WL-42 Wesendorf loader. Move alot of 1800# bales of hay. I took the rear wheel bearings and hubs off a MF750 combine and put them on the 1100. same axle size. This gives you an 8 bolt rim instead of 6. Also adjusted the tow in as it was off.
