Default Extension rim identification

I recently came across these in a scrap pile, I think they fit a Moline universal. The lugs are marked UT5373. They are 51 1/2 inches in diameter. Thanks

With the gear braces in there, those are the actual wheels, not the extensions.

Thanks Randy, I see someone removed the center hub and spokes. I found out from the owner that his dad took them off of "some funny looking cultivator tractor to use as extensions on a John Deere D". I will save them from the scrappers if I can

i believe these tractors had the nickname of widow maker, apparently farmers would tow a wagon load down hill, and the wagon would overrun the sulky. i looked at those tractors, and wonder if anyone ever thought of using channels to make a frame forward and put the sulky in front, making the sulky wheels steer, w/ operator in front of radiator, making it a somewhat normal looking tractor. just a thought. ( probably really have to stretch the word normal)
