  • Tire size

    Hello, As most of you know, I have a 1949 stude half ton short bed truck. Can anyone recommend tire sizes for stock wheels. Can I use radials? Or what other type of tire should I look at? Please advise

    NADA book shows the 49 half ton truck model 2R5 uses 600X16 4 ply tires. There are radials available in this size. Questions have arizen on the wisdom of using radials with old tube type rims. Personally I don't have the answer but if the truck is used for show only, clean unrusted stock rims should be ok.
