16" & 18" Split wheels for 1.5 ton Chevy Trucks...


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am trying to obtain more information regarding 16" or 18" split rims fitted to some Australian, New Zealand and Indian pattern trucks during WWII... The wheels used were 16" & 18" with a 10 x 7.25 bolt circle, but with a special hub up front.. Please see photos.

My understanding regarding the specifications of these wheels is the following:

1- 16" (8 bolt) x 6.5" fitted with 9.50-16 or 10.50-16 bar or sand tires...

2- 18" (12 bolt) x 6.5" fitted with 11.00-18 bar or Chevron tires.

Any information confirming the width of these wheels as well as the backspace and offset would be much appreciated. I would also be interested in these wheels (Mainly 16") and hubs if they can be sourced...

Thank you.
