Default 10-20 Front Wheel Repair?

Is there a good fix for this? Most I've found so far have the side of the rim missing from grinding on the front axle stabilizer.

There is really not an easy fix for that. You can have a piece of steel rolled into a circle and weld it onto the existing ring, or have a whole new outer ring made.

I thought that that wear was from riding against the furrow land side when ploughing.

I know that there are several companies (BIG companies) that show on their websites they can roll angle, channel, I beam, you name it, the hard way, or the "easy" way, to just about whatever radius you want.
I guess if it was rolled years ago, I shouldn't be surprised it can still be done.
Perhaps you can have them make something that will work for you.

I presume you are asking about the skid ring.
Fill in the oversized holes with weld till they fit the bolts.
There are people who roll angle iron.
There is ONE guy around here who does it and he's about 35 miles north of me.
If there's anyone else around here I never heard about them.......
So, yeah, good luck.

Craig, I think he's talking about the edge of the wheel being worn off You can see the other side is curved down a little and this side is worn down

I've seen that quite a few times and I think its worn the inside edge off from running in the furrow against the land side. I have a Twin City with a wheel like that but it has had a piece of round rod welded to the inner edge to repair it. A "farm fix that will probably stay!

Oh THAT.......
The answer is still no.
You could TRY bending a piece of flat iron but the inner side is going to buckle.
An alternative would be to have a ring cut from a sheet, preferably on a burning table so it doesn't wind up looking like crap........

Thumbs up Re: 10-20 Front Wheel Repair?

4 bad wheels to make 2 good ones!
There's a agricultural fab business not far from me, I'll see what they can do.

Anybody know of another tractor with 30" wheels that didn't have this steering system conflict? I looked at the axle stabilizers on my 10-20, and there is a worn spot.
I can improvise the hubs to fit.

If I understand the problem right it wouldn't be too much trouble or time for a shop to cut a new side ring out of appropriate gauge sheet metal on a plasma table, either cnc or by hand with a plasma cutter and a circle jig, then weld and blend it in to the existing wheel rim. For a new skid ring made from angle iron, find someone with a Hossfeld bender and the angle iron bending dies. Both could be done in small shops, it's not terribly heavy material. Hope that helps.
