Old Center + New Rim = Tight Fit?

Report to Moderator

As I mentioned in another thread, I got new 11.2-28 tires for the TO-20, and had to replace one of the rims that was too far gone to repair.

I got a 9x28, six-loop rim from YT, supplied by Sparex.

The new rim has the square, "Ford-style" loops that use carriage bolts, instead of the "pipped-head" bolts like the original Ferguson rims. (I should have sent it back as soon as I got it.)

The center doesn't seem to want to fit down inside the welded portion of the lugs - it's like they stick out too far.

Anybody ever run into this? I hate to grind anything off the centers, since the centers aren't the problem - it's the rim.

I ran into the same problem with a rim from this site...I took my side grinder and tapered the welded part and it take care of the problem. Jay
