Seen some tractor pics that had the steel covered with a rubber band with rubber lugs on them. Where can one find these?

Guys typically cut them out of old tractor tires- cut off the sidewalls, (sawzall?) bolt the tread on the steel wheel.

I got some rolls of truck retread rubber and bolted on one. Worked good for loading and driving around. Even the bolted on tractor tires tread won't pull anything. BTDT didn't work at all for a plow day. Could pull a disk though.

WOW! I was looking at your pic Sam before I posted. I thought for sure they were some kind of specialty tires for these tractors. You did a great job! Thanks all for your replies
