    RE: Truck wheels

    I am running the stock 4.5" x 16" wheels on my 1/2 ton Transtar. I have 215/85R16 tires mounted. It runs and handles great and holds the road well. SASCO had advertised these wheels f/s last summer before SI took them over, so I assume you can still get new ones if you contact their SB store.

    You can also put 6.50-16 bias ply tires on the 16x4.5" rims if you want to sit up high and reduce engine rpms. P215/85-R16 are the best match in a radial tire for the 4.5" wide rims, though tire manufacturers don't officially recommend that size on the skinny rims. There are also 15x6" wide wheels with the same 5-on-5 bolt pattern that will take modern radial a little better and you'll sit a little lower. I don't know the Budd/NWRA number for those. Don't go too wide on the tires.

    One piece, passenger car, tube-type, made for 6.00 x 16 tires, a common passenger car tire size at the time. 5 x 5" bolt pattern. Split ring wheels were only used on the larger trucks (one-ton and above, I think).

    Budd. The 4.5 x 16" wheels were UWRA number 33715-E.
