Looking for a set of these. I borrowed this photo from a website that has them for sale and will call about them but thought I'd check with you as well. Appreciate any leads.

They almost look homemade. Not because they look bad, but because I think I could make a set, and I never saw any like that before. Are you sure they are a factory item?

Wow! Good eye Andy. I called about them and they are in fact homemade. He will make them to order 14" or 15", 4 hole or 5 hole. And because he makes them at home, he really likes them, likes them a whole lot. I'm still looking.

Curious minds want to know, how much does he really like them?

If it was me, I'd head to the local car junkyard and buy 4 steel wheels that are the same size. I'd either have a friend torch out the center webs, or spend a day with the 4 1/2" angle grinder and a cutoff wheel. Then I'd use the same grinder with a grinding wheel to smooth up the edges where I cut out the centers.

Then I'd get a 1' length of 3" or 4" pipe and cut four pieces 2" long.

Then I'd have a friend cut out four 6" discs from 1/4" plate and cut 3" or 4" holes in the center (to match the pipe).

Then I'd buy a few feet of 5/8" steel rods.

Then I'd weld myself up four fancy new wagon wheels. :laugh:

If you lived in PA and not Alabama I'd even help you out. :lol:

These aren't for on-road use, so you'd be more than safe pulling a wagon around your yard with them on it.
