My new to me and first tractor needs a lot of work. Both front rims are toast....elongated mounting holes. I doubt they can be repaired.

As title says....where can I get a set...either new or used

Thanks

Have you looked at Gemplers? they have some weld on repair centers.
Otherwise John Deere.

You can also try Tucker's Tire & Oil Co. in Dyersburg, TN. I got a full set of R1 tires and wheels for my JD 4300 from them for around $1350 shipped. I swapped from the original R4 and went up to 7.5-16" on the front and 12.4-24 on rear. I'm sure that they will also have just rims.

Any luck with the Lansing guy?

No luck. He has a guy who will trade him turf tires for his spare wheels and tires, and he thinks he will have a better chance of selling his tractor with both sets of tires.

Are you still interested in buying the machine?

I found rear wheels for my 955 here and they were perfect and fast shipping. Contact them directly and tell them what you
need.

A little off topic, but how happy are you with that swap? Still have the R4 rims?

The R1s work great on my hillside pastures. No issues with traction in the field. I do need to be more careful working in the yard, though due to ripping up the turf. The R4s are better on pavement and gravel. I plan to keep the R4s until I'm done with a few construction projects around the house and shop.
