I got tired to put on and back this heavy snowchain on my HT 23.
I think it will go faster if i have 2 wheels to change between.
A trip to the junk yard and I found 2 wheels from an Chevy, 225/75-15.
Power up the plasma and I have beginning the converting to Bolens.
Here it will be a picture but i cant upload it

Regards

The 1256 I am working on now came with two donut spares bolted backwards to brake drums that were bolted to the hubs. Crude but effective. Made me think about making some weights out of some heavy rotors I have laying around.

If you didn't want to do all that rims with that bolt pattern are easy to find and if you want to go faster you can get a set of 20" ones off an old Deere combine,might have to do a little fender alteration.

Just a word of advice--you should never weld on a wheel with the tire still mounted--there was a man in my hometown who was DECAPITATED when the wheel he was welding on exploded. Turns out there was some Fix a Flat in the tire and it is Very flamable, plus was under pressure creating the perfect bomb.

There is no snow because you are ready for it. Take off the chains, weight, cab, and put on a mower deck and you will have 2 ft of fluffy stuff.

Nice job on the wheels, and those diamond chains will grip very well.

That came out great and I like the picture of your location and the house.

I have never thought of that.
But what you not see was that I have let the pressure out. And that just becuse I will fill them with liquid after I have weld them. If not, it maybe could happens.
I have filled the wheels with water and antifreeze liquid, so the weight are about the same as original wheels + wheelweights.
