Ron, I don't know what the wheels are that came on my truck, 1953 3100 5 window
1/2 ton, but I have at least 4 and maybe 6 or 8, most with crummy tires. I can
take a look at them and see what they are. They are stored out in the weeds
behind the garage, and if they're something you could use, let me know. The
price is right...free for the taking. I'm hot rodding mine and won't be using
the old wheels. They're just taking up space and would be happy to see them
disappear! In in north central MA.
