Don,

I had the same problem with my Model B. When I took the tire off the rim, I found that the salt solution in the tire had leaked and corroded the inside of the rim so badly that it had eaten small holes through the rim and had badly corroded around the valve stem hole.

I had the rim sandblasted and repaired the holes in the rim with J-B Weld. I put a piece of tape on the outside of the rim and filled the holes with J-B Weld on the inside. I then sanded the filler until smooth and primed and painted the inside of the rims with two coats of gloss enamel so that there would be nothing to snag the new tube.

I did not have the salt solution put back in the tires because I will not be using the tractor to plow, etc., only to run a rotary and finish mower.

The rims look new, and I have had no problem with punctured tubes or the J-B Weld coming off the rims. It appears to be a permanent solution in my case.

I repaired a WD wheel a few years back that had a hole almost big enuf to put your fist thru where the valve stem hole was originally. I used your standard fibreglass resin repair material. I started out with a layer on the outside, put a steel washer where the valve stem was to come thru, and then put several more layers inside. I tried to shape the fibreglass to the original shape of the rim. After everything was cured, I drilled a hole thru the fibreglass and the washer. I made sure everything was as clean as possible where the fibreglass lapped over the metal before I started. I got rid of all the loose rust and then painted the inside of the wheel with Rust-O-Leum rusty-metal primer. It's not show quality, but it's been serving me well for over 5 years. My brother fixed one that was even worse by cutting out the rusted section and welding in a not so rusted section from another bad wheel. He then drilled a hole for the valve stem. As everyone else says, you have to make sure the inside of the rim is smooth so the tube won't wear.
