How To Remove Tires Off The Rims On A 1954 Farmall H Tractor
  Wayne Beggs, Lincolnton, Ga.: “I recently bought a 1954 Farmall H tractor that had been sitting inside a shed since 2000. All the tires on it were flat, and one of the 16-in. wheel rims on front was in bad condition after sitting in the dirt all that time. It was very difficult to get the tire off the rim because you can’t put the wheel on a regular tire changing machine because there’s no center hub on the wheel. I decided to cut the center out of another rim and fit it to the Farmall rim. That would let me use a tire changing machine instead of having to do the job by hand, which is how it has been done over the past 60 years on Farmalls.
