  • Does anyone, anywhere know where to find 8n 16" front rims that take a 6.00 x 16 tire with the rims having a NEGATIVE offset so that the tire will be moved out (at least 3-4") from the axle extension? Yt and J8ns do not carry such rims.... all have positive offset that set the tire within 1/2" of the axle extension. Need rims with convex shaped wheel mounting flange or otherwise have negative offset. I've looked all over on-line to no avail. One of my 8ns have these kinds of rims but they came with the tractor. Even looked at implement rims.

  • One of my tractors had a seriously worn radius rod where the left tire rubbed every time steering was cranked all the way to the left. After going thru the axle/steering and fixing neglected stuff, there was plenty of clearance turning either way. Maintenance/repairs included: new spindle bushings/bearings/seals, new axle center bushing, centered the steering sectors, straightened the radius rods, and set the toe-in to spec.

  • Will flipping your wheels 180 degrees so the offset goes the other way put them out where you need?

  • Have you tried Ford truck rims or trailer rims?

  • Rims that will fit the 6 on 6" lug pattern are Very common.
    That lug pattern was used on many tractors and also things like hay racks, balers, corn pickers, etc, etc.
    It was used on all under 80 horse Ford tractors from 1948 till well into the 1990s including Jubilees, 600,801, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, 7000 and a huge number of derivitives of those models.
    They are available aftermarket in 14", 15", 16", 18" and 20" sizes and probably from 4"-12" widths.
    You can get them in several different offsets.
    Your local ag tire man can probably get you whatever size/width/offset you want. If not, contact Pioneer Rim and Wheel in Minneapolis, MN or Fargo, ND. They can get you anything. I put new 6x14" rims on my 3000 and ran those for about 10 years then replaced them with 900-10 TEN PLY! tires/rims a couple of years ago. All would be direct, bolt-on replacements for you.
    There are lots of choices out there.

  • I can't answer that, I have never seen one like it, nor did Ford need to offer one, at least I have never seen one in any MPC’s as accessory options. The OEM 4.5 x 16 RIM on a 5.50/6.00 x 16 tire will clear the radius rod and axle. If not you are doing something wrong like using car or truck tires. Also, try a new kingpin. Signs of a worn kingpin on a front mount distributor are it will be hitting the #2 spark plug nipple on the crab cap. Check the toe-in and reset if needed.
