MTD 550 friction wheel rubber

Hey all new here and first post. I have what I believe is a 1989 MTD 5 h.p. snowblower. I just repowered it today with the 212 Predator engine. Everything went pretty straight forward. I did have to replace the 4 mounting bolts and that was about it. Nice to have a more powerful engine. Tomorrow I'll be doing the impeller kit. Well back to my question does anyone know the exact part # for just the rubber for the friction wheel? I figured new engine, belts etc. I might just as well do the friction wheel too. Thanks in advance for any help.

If you knew exactly what model you have someone might.

I think it would be easier just to get the whole friction wheel.
I just got one for my 5/22 Craftsman and it was $18.
I have seen it said here that you might not be able to get just the rubber.

I hate shoveling SNOW!

I didn't notice the title.

Maybe it was said about another brand being hard to get?

I do see them all over ebay, some are more then I spent for a whole new friction wheel.

Is there something in front of the 550 ?? I can't find that model on the MTD site.

That's what Big Ed was getting at when he mentioned posting the model number, the whole thing. You never know when one of us has a web site you don't and can find something. Giving just part of a model number does us no good.
Some of those friction wheels don't come apart and yours might be one of them where you can only get the whole thing.
Now I'm off to research.

Well, looks to be a PN 05080AP and about $22 shipped on Ebay. It looks to be one piece and I didn't see any option to just get the rubber. I think the rubber is crimped into the wheel at the factory. Anyone else with more luck or an extra web site I don't have ??
