I'm going to need two large wheels, minimum 4 feet in diameter
preferrably larger but no more than 6' diameter. Something off
1915-vintage tractors maybe, I dunno. The things need to be steel on
the outer rim so I can weld spikes to them. Making a gizmo to haul
trees over very rough mountain terrain. Anybody have any ideas where
I can find such wheels? I'd really prefer not to have to attempt
fabricating them from scratch. tia.
Wheels like that can be made using a bender similar to a Hossfelt and a welder.
If you are up for that, I will post more info.

Can you get some tractor rims and weld a sheet steal tire around the
outside, then weld on spikes? Have you tried to find an old pull type
yarder? I know that there are some scattered around this country, Oregon,
that can probably be had for a song.
no neat sig line
If there's a ski lift nearby,see about those cable 'pulleys' used to pull
people up/down the hill.
A friend got an old pair for hauling them away. About 5 feet diameter,great
bearings,etc. he wants to make a waterwheel with them.....
