I’ve sent an email to Stockton and no answer yet. I’ve heard nothing but complaints about them on the H.A.M.B. And pirate4x4.com. So I’m not too optimistic about Stockton. I’m looking around for other custom rims makers.

22566WB from A1Truckwheels dot com is a 22.5 in 6 x 8.75". They quoted me $1650 with freight to a business address. I bought a set of original tubeless wheels on e-bay.

Ed,

Those wheels are 6-lug on 8-3/4" circle with a 6-1/2" bore hole (Budd Wheels).

I don't know what year Chevrolet went to the 6-1/2" bore hole, but the TF trucks have a 5-1/4" bore hole and the AD's have a 4-3/4" hole...

Glad to see there are some options out there.

Can someone help confirm if the wheels I have are the 2-piece "split rim/widow maker"

I am not able to tell by looking at them.

Yup, you have them...see that 2" wide band running around the center of the rim with the valve stem coming out of it? That a Firestone RH-5 "Widow Maker"...

Start looking for 2-piece rims that have the side lock ring and your bolt pattern/center hole...they are out there and they are still safe and serviceable. I found a set off of a '49 4400, then had the center hole turned on a lathe to 5-1/4" so I could put them on a 55-59 4400.
