    If they are cheap or free grab them. The six lug means they are probably Chevy.

    30s chevy truck? Ive seen wheels like that somewhere... just cant remember where...
     

  5. 38,39 chevy truck.....but they would be 15"
     
  6. I had a set that looked pretty much like yours, but I was thinking they were 17". Anyway, they had Chevy hubcaps on them and I was told they came off a '35 Chevy.
     
  7. Thanks everyone for your info.

    tb33anda3rd, yes I'm pretty sure they are 18" I'll measure again......

    They look like the international artillery wheels on a 40 IH I just did but they were 5 bolt.

  10. Get that sewing machine treadle too, for a wall hanger,,,:rolleyes:
     
  11. Not to be a wiseguy, but you are measuring the correct dimension?
     
  12. choffman41....NO problem,
    I measured these a couple months ago, memory gets a lil fogeee some times.
    I think I measured the inside lip where the tire bead rests in the wheel, I'll measure again next week before I leave for B-ville.
    Thanks.......
     
  13. The raised area for the valve stem is the giveaway, that is unique to a 18" hoop.
    18" wide five has it and the High Clearance (milk truck) wheel has it.

    Very cool find.

    Try airing up the tires and rolling them out in the light more.
