Hello folks, I just found and signed up to this forum. I recently bought a 1929 Chevrolet International truck. It is in pieces. Am I in the right place for discussion and help on this truck? I have questions regarding wheels and rims to start with. Is there a better forum to ask questions in?

Welcome, This is great place to come to. I bet you have the only 1929 Chevy in Fort St. John. The Stovebolt website has several Forums for specific questions, so if you have a paint question, you will need to use the "paint and body shop" forum. I don't think you will find a better site than this for posting questions. There are also swap meet pages, if you selling or buying parts. If you post in the wrong forum, a moderator will move you post to the appropriate one. You might find this handy too..... http://chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com/

Hey Marcel,
There are few of us here in the Lower Mainland that also belong to a local truck club, The BC Pioneer Truck Society. There is a member that has a 1926 Chevy truck. I saw by your profile that you are a trucker, several of the members of this club are working in the business or retired from the business. It's only $10 a year for a family membership. It would be difficult for you to come to the meetings, but you could get a digital copy of the newsletter. PM me if you are interested.

Welcome Marcel!

Old Chevy trucks rule!

Another good resource is the Vintage Chevrolet Club of America (VCCA). Check out their forums at https://vccachat.org/

Cheers, Dean

Thanks for the replies, guys. I looked in the shop area forums for where to post rim and tire questions. I don’t know what category I need. I have a Canadian built truck with a Brantford cab. It also has these two piece rims I’m not familiar with at all. Some rims are missing pieces. I’m looking for tires and tubes, but don’t know what size I need. Info online just deals with car size tires. These are much wider. Help.

Marcel, I have passed along your question to the fellow in the local truck club that has a 1926 Chevy through email. I'll wait for his reply and see he can shed any light on the matter.

Also, I went to Coker tire and punched in your year, and it looked like 20 X 4.5 is the tire size. Does that seem correct?

I heard from our club member at BC Pioneer Truck Society and here is what he had to say: as a 29 chev is it a half ton or a 1ton the half ton's had 400x21 front an same for the rear if it's a 1 ton it should be 400x20 front and 425x20 rear as for getting tire's they can be got in the usa at cocker tire and there is a place in washington state i don't have the name just now i will have to find it in some of my paper work.

Marcel, there is a Vintage Truck museum in Cloverdale that has a 1929 Chevy truck. Here is the link to the picture of the truck. http://bcvintagetruckmuseum.org/1929-chevrolet-12-ton.html They may be a good source of information. You can find contact information at their website. http://bcvintagetruckmuseum.org/index.html

Also, the member of the BC Pioneer Truck Society that I emailed sent another one with this information:

they have two sizes truck size is 29x4.40 for both front and rear that carry a pressure of at least 34 lbsthe other size is 30x5 s.s cord tire's and pressure is for the front is 70 lbs front and 80 lbs in thhe rear if using ballon tire's that are 30x4.50 nd they should have 35 lbs front and rear and that is all they have on tire's in the book

Thanks again. I looked at the truck on the vintage truck museum site. It looks the same , only way nicer than what I have.. How can I tell if my truck is a half or 1 ton? A gvw tag says not to exceed 7,000 lbs.. it has a chassis weight of 2,350 lbs.
I measured the rims as follows. Rim height 22” , rim width 5 3/8” (13cm) , and inner rim diameter of approx 19 1/4”. A tire I have with a mismatched rim says 6.00 - 20 6 ply.
I also have a 1928 Ford AA and it has 6.00-20 tires on it. But the sidewall height on my AA tires is much taller than this other 6.00-20 tire I have. I’m thinking that I will need 6.00-20” tires. What about tubes? Are they all the same if I get 20” ones?

It would be easier if I could post pics directly from my phone to this site.
