    I picked up a set of Artillery Style Wheels at a swapmeet yesterday. Can anyone identify them? They measure 16" x 4" with a 5 on 5" PCD.

    looks like it might be a mid 30's Mopar wheel - check out a post on here from

    '36 Plymouth wheels have a 5 on 4.5" pattern and the holes are oval shaped, I have a whole set in my garage right now, and a friend of mine has 2 '36 Plymouths. Those are not it.

    IH trucks were 4.5", Ford cars were 5.5", Packard ones have more holes in them if I remember correctly. I'd guess these might be from a late 30's or 40's era Buick, they'd have the 5 on 5 pattern, you should ask at Chevybombs.com, they know their accessories.

  9. Just sold my 35 plymouth and they were 5 on 4.5...had a 38 buick business coupe and it was 5 on 5 so maybe that's it

    Stude is a possibility. Early Chevy wheels either had a 6 lug pattern or the Standards used 5 on 4.25, an oddball size. No 5 on 5 from Chevy. The early Willys artilleries that I've seen were 4 lug.

    That's a Budd Mfg. wheel (has the 'open' or U shaped holes) - but the bolt pattern is the clue to what it came off - GM BOP?
