    Hi Tom:

    Short of finding used wheels, Carter is your best bet for 30 inch wheels. The hubs are sold separately and can be machined to fit nearly any bandsaw. Tires are quick change. Prices are breathtaking!

    Not exactly in GTA but Canadian anyway.

    These guys seem to work the big stuff but according to website 30'' wheels are available.

    Could the existing wheels be turned or something cause 30'' wheels seem to be costly.

    throw up an ad on the OWWM.org
    in their BYOD section
    listing the manufacturer of the saw and your location.

    you could be surprised
    thats if your still breath'in after looking at Carter's prices LOL

    Thank you for your response.I guess i will start looking in different direction,since i don't want to spend $2400-2800 for replacement wheels.Time to look for large used 30" Band saw and just use some parts(it's going to be much cheaper)
    One more time thank's a lot.

    Default Ford Machinery

    Ford Machinery might have some used ones. They are located in Richmond Hill. You want steel for sure.

    I think the other alternative would be to have them machined out of solid stock.

    There's often bandsaw wheels for sale, in Canada, on ebay. A pair of 28" wheels is for sale in BC now. Check this guy out as he has a lot of wheels:
