I've got a 1510 Ford 4x4 tractor with a loader. The rear wheels have rust holes through the rims near the valve stems, and I'm looking into replacements. I can get new rims from the NH dealer for the turf tires for about $240 each. What I'd REALLY like to do is replace the rear rims and all 4 tires with R4 industrial tires. The 1510 uses the same tire sizes as the Boomer TC24-33. Unfotunately my 1510 has a 6 lug and the Boomer's have an 8-lug pattern. Anybody know where I can find the right size rims with the 6 hole pattern I need? I need to keep the same tire sizes because of the 4 wheel drive. I haven't been able to find replacemnet rims (13.6-16) for the turfs anywhere but the NH dealer.

Why do I want R4's? Well, about half of my lot has stuff like rocks and roots and sticks and things that aren't turf tire friendly, the turf tires are shot, and I'm looking into a backhoe. It seems the R4's would be the best way to go.

Thanks for your help.
Jim


P.S. Anybody know where I could find a good used hood for a 1510?

I did a bit of web searching but didn't come up with much. I know that after-market manufacturers are out there, I just didn't find them. I also seem to recall that front wheels are more standard then rears so it may be difficult to avoid NH parts.

R4's may be a good idea. Some discussion around here in the archives concluded that heavy loader work using turfs tends to flatten the bottoms, which increases front tire traction and adds to front drive-train wear and tear. If my memory serves, I believe that Art can be thanked for that idea. I guess it's me that can be blamed if memory didn't serve.

Regarding selecting a R4 set. Dealers may know a set that works but something can be figured never the less. It's the ratio of front to rear rolling circumference that is important rather than keeping the same size tires. Some tire specs contain the rolling circumferences, so obtaining the rolling circumferences of any factory tire set and then looking for R4's that produce a similar ratio should work.

In fact it's not exactly rocket science, and some departure from factory sets should work. Besides, minor differences can be ironed out with tire pressures. What is important is to ensure that the percent front axle lead is maintained. To a point, greater lead is tolerable. Percent axle lead can be determined from the ration of the front/rear final axle drive ratios and the rolling circumferences. A dealer should be able come up with percent-lead specs and final drive ratios. This sounds more complicated then it is, but it's probably just my writing.

Tom,
Thanks for the web link. I found a listing for a wheel dealer in Nebraska, I'll call them today.

I can use the same front wheel I have for the turf tires, it's the rear wheels that are a problem. The NH dealer can have a wheel made for the rear with the corect bolt pattern, but I'm afraid to ask how much that will cost. There must be someone who makes a wheel for that application. I found a site for Titan wheel and tire, they make the OEM sets for NH, Deere and others. Thier application charts didn't show anything that would work. I did e-mail them, but havn't gotten a response yet. ....

Jsheds. Take your current tire sizes and check the specs for diameter/cercumference. Match your new set to those specs as close as you can.

You can drill a new valve stem hole in another location and patch the rusted out hole. Won't be beautiful but will work.

There are many sources for tires a web search for tractor tires will give you lots.

I found on my JD stock wheels I can get totally different types of tires with out changing wheels but it did take some looking.

Hope this helps Harvey ....

I do not know if they are the same, but there is a brand new hood for 1520 for sale in a bargain paper in Toronto, Canada for ($275 Canadian) about $175 here is the ad.

FORD HOOD, for 1520 series compact tractor, brand new, $275, 519-848-1118 Arthur, Ontario

I'm not sure if you would want to drive 500 miles for it, but they might be willing to ship it, if it is much less than dealer pricing it might be worth looking into. ....

Mark,
The wheels are 6-lug, but I don't know the size of the bolt circle or center hole without taking them off to measure. The front wheels are 25x8.5-14, same as on the Boomer TC24/29/33. I can put the same R-4 tire on my front wheels.

Unfortunately, the 1510 hood is different than the 1520. Otherwise that'd be a GREAT bargain. Dealer wants about $850 for a new one. I could buy a new hood for my truck for less than $850!

As for the rims, I've thought about trying to repair them and may end up doing that yet. I can weld the rim back together for a lot less than the cost of new wheels and tires. It hadn't occured to me to just drill a new hole for the valve stem though, and it's a darn good idea.
