I have two rims (5-bolt) here with 3-bolt hubs and don't know what they fit. They had on 13x5-6 tires. Measurements are: Outer width, edge to edge, 6-1/4", Outside diameter 9-1/8", Inside diameter of hub is 3/4", length of hub is 3-7/8", and appears to be held onto the axle by 2 bolts or pins, on each end.





I guessed on this forum, as the size. Any ideas?

The model 55, 56, 57 and 90 riders all had 8” diameter rear wheels. The model 50 dump cart had that tire size but I do not think they ever used a hub. My guess would be some other piece of JD OPE.

Boy do I have a trailer those would fit on if the bolt pattern is the same. I have looked for a spindle like that to use regular trailer tires on a small trailer. If you decide to get rid of them, let me know. I would be willing to take a chance and but the spindels. I don't need the rims. [email protected] Thanks.

Hey Guys! Slight correction, the tires that were on it were 16x6.50-8, not the ones I mentioned before. They appear to be the same rims that are on my 2 68's I have. I never thought to look at them as they were buried in the barn.

I dug around in the jdparts lookup system, and the 55 & 56 used 4.80-8 rear tires? The 57 appeared to use the 16x6.50-8 tires, and the hub part # AM33566 looks like this one, used on the model 55 and 57. Please correct me if I am wrong. I think I may go with the guess that these came off a early model 57 as per the tire size.

Thanks for your help guys!

I think more of the parts on the 68's were black as well, and the other earlier RER's had more green on them. Looks like your hubs are green, so I would guess not a 68, but a 57 like you mentioned.
