What are these brackets?

There are three on each wheel, each spanning two of the rim to center bolts.

Were they for interior wheel weights? Seems like they'd be spaced in quite a ways.

Any chance they’re for mounting duals? And these particular tires/rims used to be the outer duals? They look to extend out far enough to mate up to a similar bracket, mounted on the outer portion on an inner rim.

I think I see what you're seeing in the picture Wayne.
It's an optical illusion. That's actually the scallop in the wheel center.

In person, the rims look like standard 24 inch 6 loop rims.

Kirk, on the other wheel, they have them installed so that the bracket

protects the valve stem, but this side is not, as you noticed.

I've never seen the sprockets for the side dressers or mud guards.

But they are possibilities I suppose. That's why I asked! :)

Yep, that is an optical illusion! Fellas, don't flip any calendar pages, it's not good for you "age"

Interesting.

Perhaps brackets for attaching a sprocket for a side dresser?

There appears to be a cup, or raised affair between the bolts and behind the bracket. In fact the rim doesn't appear normal up by the valve steam. Or are my old eyes seeing something that isn't there?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Being that there is a square hole in each one, I would guess for mounting something with carriage bolts. Kind of small carriage bolts so something lightweight. Maybe a wheel cover to keep out mud?

Brackets for attaching hubcaps?

Maybe they weren't originally on the inside of the wheels. The wheels could have been flipped around at some point.

Haven't seen those but would move them to the next set of holes to protect the valve stem

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
