Hey everyone
I was watching a d80 video by a member on YouTube. The front of the d80 had wider wheels. I was wondering where you get green wide wheels like h2 classic 2 and 3. I imagine you have to use the touch toe and axle from classic or newer vacuum that has 16 inch nozzle. If Im wrong please correct me. I'd post link to video but it's not my video.
Thanks in advance.

I am pretty sure the axle assy stays the same and you use two different screws with long shoulders to effectively increase the wheel bearing area. As for wheels, try ebay or Kirby shops. The shop here near me has bound to have some, either in a dust-covered bin or still attached to a machine in storage.

If you come across green wheels let me know. I knew you had red c2 or c3 wheels on your 505. I found your rebuild on your 505 and wow your innovative and it looks beautiful and better than original. I'm fixing up 508 before I start 505 and I'm using your pics as reference.
