I have a WD45 WFE, with a DuAl 320 loader on it, and will be hauling 1200 lb round bales to the cows all winter. I cut in quite deeply last winter with the original 3 rib 16" tires, and was wearing a 3pt 7' disk on the back, for traction. I would like to put 10 ply 16" truck tires on it for flotation , this winter. I doubt that truck tires will work on the narrow 16" rims that it is currently wearing. Can any one tell me what truck rims will fit the WD45 wheel pattern?, and not rub on the top- of the spindles.

1200 lb bale on front of a 45 with loader weight seems like a lot of weight for that small of tractor. Remove disk and carry bale on back and use loader as front end weight.

I believe that chevy 5 bolt rims will fit. Ive never tried it myself, but I've read about the chevy wheels working in here before.

I have my hay stacted 2 high on end in the barn. I need the loader to remove the top row. I carry the bales about a foot off the ground, and stay off of the side hills. the loader has plenty of pickup power, from a pto pump, and the 45 handles it ok. You just have to use good judjment, go slow, and don't get wild about it.

An early 50's Buick wheel is a perfect fit. They are 15" and take a 800X15 tire. I have them on my D17.

R A beat me too it- I had the same on my first D17. Make a cardboard cutout of the pattern and head for the junk yard.

Ralph we found the only wheel that would fit is a 1950's Buick 15" rim. 700X15 or 6 ply 235/75R15's work on them.

Just a thought, but if you could swap the 5 bolt hubs for a pair of 6 bolt hubs, your options for wheels would be wide open.
