    I'd say early 50's Ford truck with keyway. Buicks were splined flat spoke banjoes.

    Had to tell for sure from the pic, but the wheel looks 'dished'...and, if so, it's probably a '56 or later Ford truck

    Ford truck maybe so, i can't remember where i got it

    reason i said Buick that's what i had the most of

    might of got in a package deal :confused:

    the spokes have the Y look

    yes the spokes are dished inward

    56 Ford truck is different
    has ribs on spokes

    56 Ford Fairlane looks close

    tried to copy the pictures didn't work

    It's not a 56 Ford car wheel. This is the cheap mainline wheel no cutaways for a horn ring. I love this wheel.

    a Custom line or Fairlane has recesses for the horn ring.

    Remember it could be a big truck wheel from the 50s.
