hi guys i have a very important question/ discussion for you. i am thinking about doing a dually set up on my craftsman. im ordering a peerless 820 heavy duty transaxle (139$ GREAT DEAL) and want to do a dually set up. im pretty sure the transaxle will be beefy enough to take the stress (yes im going to lock it) but i need some ideas on how im going to mount the wheels to the transaxle. im thinking about welding the 2 rims together (4 rims total 2 on each side) but that leaves the issue of how im going to mount it. i was thinking of doing a hub set up in the axles and extend the studs out to the second rim. i dont know i really need ideas and i think you guys could help me. im running 20X7-8 knobby tires

I know with my Agway GT, the rims have special notches for carriage bolts for duallies.

The best way I believe how to do it is to have a spacer so the rims dont rub and to either have your studs or some extra bolts to come through both rims. Welding them together will make it miserable to change tires.

okay i dont think welding my rims would be a huge deal because my tires dont jut out from the rim at all and theres a pretty good lip to weld together. i still would like to find 4 identical atv rims with 2 hubs but i dont know where to look

I still suggest against welding your rims together.

Check Craigslist or look online.

Use a spacer and long bolts.


Welding the rims together would make it nearly impossible to remove a tire without cutting it off.

Mounting them would be possible.

It would also kill tires.

I'm not quite sure what I am going to do yet and the transaxle is brand new from the factory so I see that as a pretty good deal. And I don't think welding my runs will be a huge problem because my tires don't bulge out past the rim at all. And I don't plan on taking the tires back off. I know I'm gonna end up hating myself later though when I actually do need to take them off. And when I weld the rims I'm planning on putting a 1" rod through the center axle hole to make sure their completely centered. The transaxle is supposed to be coming in today so Ill be starting on this soon ill keep you guys posted
