Does anybody know where I can find a wheel that will fit a Lodge & Shipley Choremaster single wheel walk behind tractor.I have one that I'm trying to restore and the wheel and tire that was with it were shot.I don't really care if the tire is a turf tire or bar tread,the tire size is 6.50 X 6,that shouldn't be a big problem,the wheel is a 3 bolt wheel on a 3in bolt circle.

I have some rims off an Airens snowblower that are 3 lugs,and have 6" tires..maybe you can find some locally,they are pretty common..I can measure mine and see if the bolt pattern is 3",I think they are..I also have some 3 bolt rims with 6" tires off sit down mowers but I think the bolt circle is larger than 3"..


I had a few pairs of those Airens rims hanging around,and I cut the centers out of a pair of those and welded them in place of the original centers on a pair of ford escort 13"space saver spare tires & rims, to use on a Harley Davidson golf cart differential,they fit the 3 bolt hubs it had perfect!..

I had dragged several ATV rims home from swap meets,the dump,etc,with 3 lugs and found out there are at least 3 different bolt patterns on those and NONE fit the differential!--then I stumble across the Airens rims in my shed----and discovered I had what I needed all along!..DUH!..

Thanks,I'll check that out,I have a Toro snowblower frame,not sure what's on it but an Ariens shouldn't be to hard to find.If you get a chance,check the bolt circle on your wheels to see if they are 3in.

I measured the rims lug pattern yesterday---from the center of one lug hole to the other directly across from it,it is 3"..if you measured from the outer edge of one hole to the center of the other,its 3-1/4"..so I'd say those Airens rims will fit for you...your Toro may have the same ones,other snowblowers like some older Sears and Craftsman used them too..
