PostSubject: Noo B   Thu 25 Nov 2010, 6:42 am

Hello folks. Just hangimg aroung enjoying the site. I retired this year and I am in the process of catching up on a lot of things I've always wanted to do, and one of those is to clean up a nice riding mower to use for pulling a barrel train. I would really like to know where one could buy polished or chrome rims for the mowers. Thanks for listening. Happy Thanksgiving. Smile

http://www.millertire.com/ used to carry them. I don't know if they still do but that would be a good place to look. I didn't see them listed on thier website but I have a catalog from them that is a couple of years old and polished aluminum rims for garden tracters are in there. Good luck and welcome!

Polished wheels are really nice but man you put a set of 4 on and your looking into a lot of money.For my budget a set of chrome hubcaps is the only way to go,polished wheels are actually bought more for tractor pulling so thats why you pay the big money hubcaps are just more reasonable,nice coat of paint and a full set of chrome wheels covers and you have a nice ride don't care what type or model of garden tractor you end up getting,welcome to the forum by the way Very Happy ,,,,KW

We have a pretty nice golf cart my uncle built for me. I thought about the hub caps too. I don't know, but I really appreciate all the pointers. Either way I'm sure it would look great. I really like the ones on here with the hub caps. They are sharp. I'll keep you posted. Thanks again.

I don't know how to post pix yet. I've tried but without success. Any help? My computer crashed a couple days ago and I have lost everything. I will post as soon as I get new ones.

Right above the box you write your message in you will see some smaller boxes starting with B the 6th box click it!! this box says host an image then browse to the pic you want and click host then when the next box comes up click the middle where it says copy. then back above you need to clck on the box next to host an image that says image paste in your link and hit ok and it should work. if you still have problems PM me your phone # maybe I can explain it better ...

Thanks fellas...The tractor was done by a friend of mine who restores them. Everything from the rearend to the radiator has been rebuilt. 2) The golf cart was done by my uncle who builds them. He did it for me after my open heart surgery.3) The gas pump was done by another friend who has a body shop. It had been beaten with a hammer. It took him weeks to get all the dents out. I am having a new barn built in the spring and the pump will be a part of that. We have a couple of "flings" out here every year. One in the spring and one in the fall. We have church and friends. Folks bring kids that don't get to do much or have much. We have a cook out, hay rides, games, music and it doesn't cost them a dime. I have been so blessed and this is just our way of "paying it forward". I retired this year from a stroke. No crippling, just no longer have my balance. I need stuff to piddle around with. Thanks again and thanks for listening. Have a good 'un. santa

You both seem like great folks. You have been really helpful. KW, my sister lives in Greenfield. I'm just a little ways inside OH from Richmond. I don't know where you are but, maybe someday we may meet. I love tractor shows and such. I no longer drive, but my wife takes me anywhere I want to go. We travel to quite a few (anything that rolls shows). You never know. I really like your guys tractors. The yellow one is too sharp. Smile

JD...a friend bought me a minature one for Christmas a couple years ago that is a beverage dispenser. It stands about 18" or so tall. It's a replica of the visible. I have neve taken it out of the box. It's neat.

I've always thought it would be cool to rig up a old gas pump as a drink dispenser, but I aint normal. Neutral
