  • Dearborn 21-2 Wagon
  • Does anyone know what 6 lug automotive wheels will fit the 13-2 wagon? Traded for one a while back that has 3 original wheels and one newer implment or tractor wheel, that have the 4 holes for weights. The original wheels are rusted up pretty bad, and the newer wheel is a tad wider. Need to get it going with 4 matched wheels and tires. Craigslist has quite a few factory 16" and 17" wheels off of Chevies and Toyotas, cheaper than new implement wheels. Some of them are even the alloy wheels. I think it'd make for a mighty spiffy wagon. Thanks. Mark

  • I think the major difference between modern automotive wheels and those used on older farm equipment is in the diameter of the center hole which fits over the hub. Wheels from some older pickup trucks might be worth a try. Take one of your hubs to an older salvage yard and try the fits. On the Dearborn the front wheel's dish depth must be about right or turning radius will be affected.

  • The newer wheel looks just like the pictured wheel in the link. The other 3 are somewhat narrower, and terribly pitted and rusty. I never thought about the offset, or hub diameter. I don't think it'd be an issue to remove material to fit the hub, if the offset didn't create a problem. The price is right, and with some used tires, these would be ideal.
