I have a 1947 Oliver 90 where the front rim is rusted enough that a commercial tire service will not install a new tire. They said it was a safety issue. I have not been able to find a replacement rim. Is it possible to repair the rim by removing the rusted section and welding a new piece of metal in its place? I would enlist the service of a professional welder.

BTDT to many times where a rim is bad and you either don't have the $$ to buy a new one or you cannot buy a new one or someone says it cannot be fixed and I fix it any how

20 years ago I bought john deere tractor with badly
damaged outer rear rim so I cut off damaged
section and welded rim from old major wheel and
problem solved .. I also know someone who was
badly injured when he was inflating front jcb wheel
and the split rim was not correctly fitted

I've welded pieces in to both rear rims on my Oliver 1365. Scared the crap out of me, but the tire guy stood and watched me do it,
wouldn't put the tires back on until I did. That said, don't ever underestimate the explosive force of a tire, even with just a few
PSI.

Yes, you can cut out the bad if the rust is not too bad.

But if the entire rim is rusted, you can get a new wheel the same size and cut the center out, cut away the rusty rim, weld your original center to the new rim.

Seems I remember finding rims without centers online once, never bought one, went a different route. Might do a search.

We do them all the time. We keep a couple of old rims laying around to cut sections out of to match the rim we are repairing. Most
of the time they are bad around the valve stem hole.Repair the bad area and drill a new hole somewhere else. piece of cake.

I have patched rims too. You can't expect an employee of a tire service to work on a welded rim, it is against their insurance rules. It can be difficult to match the compound curve of the rim. If you go to the metal stock rack that they have at many hardware and auto supply stores you can often find some steel bar stock that has a curve in the cross section. You can bend this to fit into the thin part that you cut out.
