Anybody know Franklin bolt pattern / wheel size?
« on: October 08, 2021, 09:41:17 AM »
Morning All,

In my work travels, I've come across a little shop with a 90% Firestone Forestry Special 28L-26 for $500! I'm not near my machine, and don't think the wife could be trusted nor agree to measuring the bolt pattern of a greasy skidder rim! It's a mid to late 60's 132. I've been told all Franklin rims of that era share the same bolt pattern. I can buy a wheel from him cheaper than the paying labor to dismount my old tire- and would have a spare. Anybody know what the bolt pattern is on a machine from this vintage? Thanks in advance!
