I was going to keep my 51 VAC with the original 11.2-10 x 34 rears after both mine blew up but the cost of new rubber is a killer. I found 2 sources one for $674.00 plus the cost of tube and shipping. The low price was for Titans at local tire dealer for $615.00 each plus tube cost. I finally decided to just find some 28 inch hubs and rims somewhere, put some good used tires on it,then spend the difference on refurbishing this great little tractor.

Barry I do not know where you are at but I have some 28" hubs wheels and even some used rubber I would sell. Located in western Wisconsin.

I'm in southwest Missouri, sort of between Joplin and Springfield. I'd probably be interested but would have to have them freighted.

I changed mine over years ago. I've a 6 ft Woods belly finish mower under it and first gear was just to tall for much of anything. You were always working just off idle. Like was said earlier it WILL make a quite a difference in your gearing...........for my purpose it worked great

I'm sure you and mj are right. I really like the way the tractor looks with the 34's but that tall tire robs a lot of low end power.

I'll more than likely sand and paint the wheels and hubs and save them till I can afford 34 inch rubber, sorry.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal.
