Got a quote from my tire man on 18.4x28's. He said he cannot even get them and another local dealer quoted him $815/ea. Ouch. Are they hard to come by?

Oh, I see. You have a set for sale. Are they 28"? Shoot me an email with pictures of the tires/rims.

Thanks,

Yes I bought my 30" rims & centers used from a salvage yard. Also going from 28 to 30 you go from 4 rail to 5 rail spin outs.
I don't think going to 34" rims is quite as easy for a 180. The 180 and similar tractors (D17, 170/175, 185) have hub mounted centers due to the drop down final drives. 30" rims are fairly easy to come by given the amount of 180/185 tractors made that came with 30" rims. Tractors like the D19 and 190 that used 34" sizes were axle mount affairs with straight axles coming out and can't be used. I agree 6060/60680 used hub mount wheels but those are going to be harder to find given the limited production of those units and likely much more expensive. It's possible another brand of tractor though had 8 bolt hub mount 34" rims & centers but I'm not familiar with what might cross over. Mike

I bought 18.4X28 last year, Firestones, Our dealer had them and they were 850 put on for the pair, I put them on a 6060. If I were going to change I would go up to 18.4X34. just a thought Vic

I understand the reason to upgrade to 30" rims and centers. My question is considering this is probably the last set of tires this tractor will ever get, is it cost effective to upgrade rim size?

Where did you find 30" spin outs for your tractor? Salvage yard? Combine?

Thanks,

just checked with 1 of my old suppliers. They have 6 ply Titans for 739.92 each put on at the shop. Price doesnot include new tube, tire disposal, or pumping fluid.

My new 18.4X30's (10 or 12 ply) were $479 (tire only) when I bought mine last year. Price difference nearly paid for used rims & centers to upgrade size. Mike

Pricey, yes. Hard to get, any good farm tire dealer should have no trouble getting them ordered for you.

Yes 18.4X28 are very pricey and harder to find these days. My 180 had 16.9X28's which were a factory size but undersized for the size of the tractor. I got some used rims and centers and moved up to 18.4X30's on mine. The old 16.9X28's and rims will go on my WD45. Mike

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
