The same type of 10" pneumatic wheels as are used on the front are also used for the rear drive wheels. A simple modification is made to the rear wheels to add a torque plate attachment to fix the wheels to the rear drive axles.
The radial load capacity of each wheel is about 136 kgf (300 lbs)

rear wheel and torque attachment

As with the front - the rear wheels are commonly available and inexpensive 10" pneumatic split steel rim type wheels. A minor modification is made to the rear wheels to add a torque plate which engages with ground torque transfer flats on the drive box main output axles.
