Can anyone tell me what size rims go on the back of a 35 model F-20? The ones that are on it looks like they are 6 or 7 inches. is this correct? Thanks Scott

7 inch is about right for that year, back then they had no concept of wide base rims on anything, trucks, cars, or tractors, and the tires were built accordingly. About 1940 tractors started getting wide base rims that gave use of the type of tires we can buy easily today. Modern tires look "pinched" on those old style narrow rims, and they are, really. The old syle tires(9.00-36,10.75-28,11.25-36 etc.) had a lot more side wall area in relation to the tread width to keep the tread flat on the ground at proper inflation pressure. So, nowdays all anyone can do is use relatively small tires on those old rims or section the rims to make them wider or cut them off and replace them with wider rims to use today's tires and have them "look right". Considering the going price of most round spoked wheels, it's almost a crime to "doctor" up any good wheel in any way.

thats probably a 36x7 rim, right? i think the smaller diameter rims were wider. mine are f&h round spoke 36 in. i'm not sure what the width is but 7 in. sounds about right.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
