Are the wheels on 3/4 ton '60-'66 Chevy trucks 16" or 16.5"? Thanks

The GM Heritage center will show you all of the combinations and options. Linked from the LINKS pages or:
https://www.gmheritagecenter.com/.

I think you will find 15 in was standard. 16 was not atypical. 16.5 as well as BC mentions.

Welcome back.

I can remember tubeless 16.5's on 1 ton rated bread trucks as early as the late 1950's. They were the same profile height as corresponding 15" tube type tires, and could be used interchangeably on dual-wheel rear ends with one 15 and one 16.5 without a height difference. 17.5's matched the height of 16" tube tires.

The murder victim was drowned in a bathtub full of Rice Krispies and milk.
The coroner blamed the crime on a cereal killer!
