Hi I am working on a T snowmobile for a guy that he bought
Not running or complete it has the TT rear end with a ruxtel
I need to find out what size wheels go on the rear
It looks like 600x20 would not fit in the tracks.
Is there a special rim wheel and tire combo for this?
Any help appreciated

Jim

Hi Jim,

The snowmobile using a TT rear axle uses a special wheel in that it has a TT hub to fit the TT axle, but the felloe and rim are all "regular" 30 x 3 1/2. The spokes are special. I have seen only a couple of loose snowmobile wheels over the years. You may have to send TT hubs and 30 x 3 1/2 felloes to a wheelwright to have snowmobile wheels custom made.

Good luck with your project. Bill

Interesting side note RE T Snowmobile...

On my way back home from the National Tour in Cochrane I hauled a bunch tracks and two wheels down to SoCal from the seller near Salt Lake City. I couldn't imagine why a guy down here wanted to build a T snowmobile but he lives near Palmdale and has some mountains close by and an affection to the T with tracks!

I was surprised how heavy those wheels were! It all sure would add a lot of extra weight even with the fenders off.
