I have a rotten spin out rim on my WD-45. I do not need the spin out function. Coincidently I also have a Gleaner E combine.

Will the gleaner rims bolt on the wd-45 axles?

If not what is the most practicle resolution to the rotten rim. This is a work tractor.

When I bought one of my WD45"s It had combine wheels on it. 16.9X26. They are the asme hieght as the 14.9X28"s the tractor is suposed to have. they will bolt right on in the wheels dished out position. you can"t put on dished in so you"ll have a wide tractor. I went ahead and replaced My power shift wheels so I could get it on my Trailer.

i put a set of 14.9 x 26 case combine wheels and tires on my wd. the overall tire height is about an inch taller than my stock 13.6x28 stock wheels and tires. they fit well. as long as the bolt pattern is the same the gleaner wheels should fit your wd45.

Tire height rather than rim size will determine your ground speed. I put a pair of 18.4x26 wheels from a 4400 Deere combine on my WD45 cruiser. They are about 6 inches taller than the 13.6 x 28 tires that were on it. Those 26 inch rims are a tight fit, but they will work.

John, have you ever checked to see how much speeds in each gear changed?

Two options- You can find a donor rim and cut out/weld in a section. The combine rims will work, but are 26 inch, not 28 inch, so the ground speeds in all gears will be slower.

They are a smaller rim, but they are probably wider, no? Maybe not a big difference...

I don"t have any combine books before the K/K2, which shows a 14.9-26. Width has a major influence on tire height, so I can readily believe the size John talks about having that kind of influence. When I dualed my Model F, I used a 16.9x28 dual alongside the combine"s 18.4x26, and they were equal height. Just jerry-rigged some square steel shafts to accommodate the rim difference, instead of using bell bands. My M2 I used 18.4x38 duals with the combine"s 23.1-30s- using a bell band- they are the same height. Those bell duals came off of a Case 2470, same combo.

FWIW- CRS says I jerry-rigged the 16.9x28 duals from the D17 to the F combine in the wet Fall of 76 or 77. Hand made a 26 inch spacer band, bolted 3/4 inch square steel shafts inside the 28 inch dual band, the 26 inch spacer band inside that, which matched up to the combine 26 inch rim. No welding, so no tire dismounting- owned the combine with my cousin, who had farmed longer, said we"d not be in the field for 2 weeks in this wet clay. Spent under 2 days in the shop, and we were rolling. Duals barely fit behind the 438 head, and had to leave the cab ladder off, but that was minimal- we were both agile then!
