8" x 5-3/8" Steel Wheel
3" hub, 3/4" bearings. Hub is offset to the back side.
Rim width (5-3/8") is measured inside, bead to bead, NOT outside to outside.

Check your rim style and tire size before ordering.

I bought this wheel to replace one of the front wheels on my IH Cub Cadet. It fits perfectly and looks like an original wheel complete with bearings. Good product.
I installed these wheels on my 1976 Sears ST12 tractor. The original front wheels are about 4" wide and have bronze bushings. The ball bearings are a welcome improvement. There are grease cups welded to the inside of the front spindles that have to be cut off for these wheels to fully insert onto the axle. The ID of the grease cup is smaller than the OD of the hub on these wheels. These wheels have zerk fittings for grease, but the included bearings are sealed making the grease fittings useless. No other fitment issues, they bolt right on. I had the 16x6.50-8 Carlisle Rib 4 ply tires mounted on them.
I replaced rusted out 68 Sears Suburban front wheels with a pair of these. They are a perfect fit with the three inch hub thickness. The white panted finish is so smooth I think the rears are jealous. The hub has a slightly larger outside diameter than the original rims, so some mods were necessary to the tractor dust caps. The included bearings allowed me to toss the original thrust bearings. The recessed area in the center allowed for easy tire mounting by myself. I would like to put up a picture with the tire mounted but the site doesn't allow it
FAIR PRODUCT,FAIR PRICE,PROMPT DELIVERY.... WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK ????? TOM
Just installed these rims and tires last night.
Like the fact they are grease-able and it's great they come with the bearings installed.
I know these rims are for garden/lawn tractors but after putting them on the spindles and spinning them with the front axle off the ground they run out quite a bit. I don't think the hubs were welded in very square to the outside edge of the rim giving it a wobbly look when it's spinning like it's bent.
I would recommend them for a replacement rim, but think the quality of the squareness of the hub to side of the rim could be better. My actual rating would be 3.5 stars.
Bought this rim to replace a failed OEM rim on a '68 Wheel Horse. Needed to use 3/4" bronze spacer as the hub was narrower than OEM. Would have been nice to have drilled holes for mounting the wheel weights but that was an easy DIY.
