I see about a half dozen 4-spoke wheels by as many sellers all for around $55-$58. Here's my theory. They are most likely made by a different supplier than the Carpenter, Steiners, and Just8ns ones, those I'd bet are all from one supplier and are of decent quality. I know some guys here have them on their tractors and may or may not chirp in. The cheap ones, I'm thinking, are probably cheaply made, solid plastic maybe, with no steel frame at all like the others. That would explain the nearly 50% reduction in pricing. Maybe someone who has purchased on will also chime in. I'm just saying what I think, but in the end Chris, it is your tractor so you will have to make the decision yourself what you want to go with. We all want and appreciate a good bargain, but, I can only speculate on why the two products are priced so far apart. Cheaper material means cheaper manufacturing and that is what I believe is going on.
