    The one in the picture is the factory but both the front outer rims are cracked on the 2950 4wd... one is a mismatch wheel that rubs the tie rod I believe I can flip the outside rim so there’s less offset on the center but it’s still a miss match rim. JD wants about 900 for a new rim. I mean... there’s got to be other rims off other years that should fit it, or atleast I’d think so. There’s a 8.75 center 3.5 offset on the inside and 5.5-6 on the outside... I’ll post some pictures. I’m just wondering if I go to a tractor salvage yard later on in the future trying to find parts. I looked at a 3155 and the rims looked like they would’ve fit and were built stronger.... also I finally ordered a owners manual for my tractor so that should make a few of you guys happy lol.

    My 6415 mfwd has the same size front tires. But my wheel centers are different, four pair of two bolts to the rim and spacers.
    My guess is the bolt circle (8 holes around the center hole) of the axle will be standard

    If you need any measurements LMK

    Ebay has a JD 3155 selling parts. Front wheels/tires are shown. You could contact the seller for measurements too.

    I can't imagine how the wheels cracked

    Yes sir I actually contacted that guy a couple weeks ago and he said his measurements were different. I believe he also wants local pick up.... my tractor had had a lot of rough front loader work... probably shouldn’t have bought it but I couldn’t resist 😕 clutch still feels good and everything. You should see the shape my bucket is in and the mud dobber welds. I don’t understand it unless they where ramming info things. I’m keeping my eye open for another bucket too... just cut and weld my quick attachments to it.

    Probably will need to go on a road trip to collect everything I need.

    If you create a free jdparts account I think you can do a where used search to look for other models that use the same part number.

    What model loader? The bucket that came with my 245 loader is pretty bad, looks like it was used for manure. Seller told me it was not the original bucket. He (used implement dealer) said he sold another loader and the buyer did not like the bucket, so he swapped him the one from the loader I bought and I ended up with a beat up rusted bucket. Good thing the grapple stays on 90% of the time.

    Both 2950 AND 3155 list the same P/N for the wheel center L34321. Maybe the guy did not want to take any measurements?

    Ditto from performing "where used search" it appears 20 other JD tractors utilize the same frt rim

    It’s a 260 loader, I’m listing a link I found, if you find another bucket you can just weld this quick attachments to it but I bet the grapple it so nice. If I had a grapple I’d have my fence line completely cleaned of under brush. Lol I bet my bucket is in worse shape then yours, it really looks like it hit a tree going full speed maybe broke in the center then a kid welded grader blades all around it 😒... but... it scoops big loads of dirt compared to my 5055 tractor with economy bucket.

    Also I was thinking the same thing, the guy didn’t feel like measuring. Because I looked up specs and it said my tractor came with either 24 or 28s on the front, all he saw was 24 and 28, I definitely don’t mind some 28s. I’ve seen a 2950 that had a completely different center rim star pattern then mine so i just knew others would fit. Thanks for that link TX and Rydplrs I’ll check into it, It definitely helps broaden the search.

    And dang it, the owners manual I ordered came in today was just for the front end assembly. I thought the sells title “4wd tractor 2950” would be complete tractor... little disappointed 😞 I need to learn how this big machine functions.

    You have a larger version of the loader I have, mine is the 245. I have not tried to find a new bucket, it might be hard now do to the age of the loader. Yours has the same independent valve mine has too. I like how easy they are to take on and off.

    Parts shows three different wheel centers and rims in both 24" and 28" I am not sure why.

    You do NOT want to change from 24" tires to 28" tires. That would have the front axle out pulling the rear by TOO MUCH and would damage the transmission.

    You might want to contact the ebay seller again and price the front wheels. U-ship would be an option for shipping.
