My current project just yesterday threw me a curve ball. The tires on the rims set in the back of a barn for 24 years. The inside of rims are too far rusted to safely use at highway speed. Does ANYONE know where I can get good used 16" 3 1/2 or 4" wide 47 thru 55.1 rims? Salvage yards have nothing in this area. Gone are the days of finding any parts in barn yards. Doc.

That's a very good price for new wheels. Buy just 2 and get free shipping too.

Hey guys, once again thanks for the help but, I still have a problem. I need the old type of wheel that had the nick name "artillery wheels", used on the 1947 thru 1959 Chevy 1/2 ton. This type of wheel had clips to mount the small logo hub cap. I believe that these 16" wheels were discontinued in 1955.1. I will make a post in Items wanted thread with specific details. Doc.

Oh....bless your heart! The picture on the far left is the type I need. I'm a little timid in posting my Email address to anyone outside of The Stovebolt people. I saw the warning posted. I need four and hopefully a Stovebolter will have some. Thanks again. Ed

You are welcome Doc.Hall,
(It has been a while since I have been blessed - Thanks .
However, I've been cursed-at many times.

Did you post a Parts Wanted Ad in the Swap Meet?

Doc Hall I believe I have the wheels you are looking for. How many do you need?
I will try to post pictures in the daylight tomorrow. I'm in NJ so not certain how to get them to Florida for you.
