    looking for an upgrade to my widow makers. i guess i could have the centers cut and welded into new discs, but i am wondering about the mitsubishi fuso (medium duty commercial truck) wheels. i can find them for about 90 bucks a piece, some are 5 bolt but no mention of the bolt spacing. i believe the f-6 is 5 on 8". does anyone have access to one of these mitsubishi trucks to get a measurment? thanks in advance.

    I'm guessing that aluminum may not be the look you're going for but you may check with Alcoa. My dad has a GMC Viking that has some polished Alcoa's big 6 lugs on it and they look really nice... just not period correct if that matters.

    thanks for the input ahawes. kinda want to stay with steel, big window aluminum might not look bad, but i'm really going for a working wrecker from the 50's look.

    I would check with your local truck tire service center. A later tubeless five hole BUDD wheel should work. You may end up going to a different diameter. It would still give you the steel look you want.
