I cannot find anybody that will even think about working on the original widow wheels. So would appreciate any info on finding 5 hole tubeless wheels for an R17 truck. Prefer 19.5 but will use 22.5 if need be.

I found four 19.5s at a wrecking yard about a year ago. Unfortunately one was bent. I have now found five more at another wrecking yard and I would be willing to sell you the two I won't need off the latest vehicle when I go to get them. BTW the vehicles you need to look at are mid 70's Large RVs. Neal

Sorry I haven't called you but, we were hit with some bad weather here which made it impossible to go to the wrecking yard. I want to let you know that I intend to use these rims on my '48 M-16 and I don't know if your truck has the same bolt pattern (I have been told that it is called the "big five" pattern). Another issue I ran into is the size of the center hole. The center-hole on the rims is 5 7/8" and the hole on the split rims is 6" which is no problem for me because I bored the center-hole out of one of the rims on my mill.

As I have said before I have four rims (one is bent) three are good, I need six to make my dually. The donor vehicle has five so I would only be able to part with two. I live in New Mexico and it looks like you live in Arkansas. I havenít weighed the rims yet but they have some weight to them and I am wondering if it is worth the shipping. I am not trying to dissuade you I just want to make sure this is something you want to do before I buy all the wheels of the donor vehicle.

Please email me if you want to continue. Neal

I have 5 5 hole buds with 8.25 x 20 and 9.00 x 20 tires on them. Let me know if you are interested.
