hi all .has anyone got any info on steel wheel rims ? either some firm that makes them,or a stockist. the rims on the autoculto are ripe with rust and one of them has rotted through now i have the rust removed.  or has anyone got a spare wheel size 400 x 19 thats available.

The grey Ferguson T20 tractors had 400 x 19  front wheels. Are the inner wheel parts sound, if so then a good welder should be able to cut the old rims of the inner wheel and weld a replacement on. I don't have any spare ferguson wheels myself, they are on my tractor!  But they frequently turn up at farm or vintage sales.

There were a pair on ebay the other week, that may explain why so many people were after them!

Any chance of seeing a photo of these rims? I bought a couple from the newbury sortout, but not sure if they are landmaster or auto culter, I bought them to convert for my Barford atom, as they were fitted with cast iron wheel strakes which i fancy for ploughing.

Hi, I looked at my autoculto today as I have a  machine but without any attachments, and like the picture above the rims appear to have rolled edges, which unfortunately  the ferguson ones do not  so I don't know if the ferguson ones will be suitable if you want them to look original

Nope, Sorry , it seems the ones I bought came off a Landmaster, not like yours at all, so I will go ahead and fit Barford Hubs to them so I have spare heavy duty ones for ploughing,(I hope)!

Hi,
Its a shot in the dark but how does your rim measure up against a motorcycle rim? ignoring the spoke holes of course.

RAY. HELLO yes the wheel is made by dunlop and a trials tyre is similar but modern trials have 4 x 18 0n the back and the front have19 or 21 x 3 0n the front. may put a rear on both centres but would have to cut a half inch off each spoke to accomodate new rim.

Hi,
I was thinking along the lines of an older bike rim so maybe the sizes could be closer to yours.
If you are lucky enough to find a match I see that one of the companies below state that the cost of the rims depends on the degree of finish that the customer needs so maybe rims ready to paint would be affordable.

Ouch!! at that price there would be raised eyebrows to say the least from the lady of the house.
Probably be cheaper to look out for a another machine to use as spares.
