    Rear ATV Rim and tubeless tire!

    Finally got around to fabbing a rear hub to accept a 12" tubeless Atv tire. Been meaning to do this for a while and now actually did it.

    I started with a stock wheel from a tw, cut the spokes and used plasma table to cut out a 2 piece hub that is welded around the tw hub which accepts the studs from a triz250 front wheel, and bolted up a tri z front wheel that barely fits around the brake drum. Just got home from doing this and should have some pics and details up shortly.

    Here's a couple pics of the rear hub and one of an extended swing arm that is an alternate way to extend it this one being three inches

    MudDog's photos use a 14" trailer wheel as the rim source while TinyWheel's donor is from a front tri-Z250 wheel I think. I believe a 12" trailer rim has been proposed as an alternative yielding a lighter wheel assembly, tubeless capability, easier tire changes and flat repair as well as wide range of 12" ATV tire options. Any of these three options seems superior to using the stock TW rim with ATV tires.

    Rally on! I like tubeless but kinda like the stock size tire for dual sport use. Spokes are great for strength but what
    a pain when one finds a penetration. A careless farrier gave me three flats a while back on a ranch I work on........
    would have been nice to "plug n go"

    Someone here years ago posted about going tubeless with stock TrailWing tire and OEM rim. Author installed a tubeless valve stem and used a "goopy" white colored 3M adhesive to paint over the spokes. Several coats later he had a sealed spoke rim. I hope he tightened his spokes first . I suppose a broken spoke could be replaced with some effort. I do not recall if he ever reported back if he was happy after a long term test.

    This thread reminds me that I need to resurrect my stalled project of copying Little Big Foot's build that uses a trailer wheel on the rear. Already got the wheel and a hub stripped down and ready for some machining, fabrication and welding.



    Here is Little Big Foot's thread (I haven't seen him around here in a long while ).
