Hey guys new member here, I have a 57 1 ton dually that has 19.5's on the rear but 16.5's on the front. Was this a factory option? Anyone able to point me in the right direction for 2 matching 19.5's for the front? Thanks guys![img]https://www.stovebolt.com/ubbthread...84679BF-ECC6-48F1-AC97-589EF5611926.jpeg[/img]

Have you tried searching in the forums? I looked and here’s one where they converted to 19.5’s as an example. https://www.stovebolt.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/1347038/new-tires-and-rims.html

I don’t think 16.5’s ever came on ‘57’s, or anything else for that matter.

I had a '72 K10 Chevy that had 16.5's on it. They were 6-lug. I believe the '84 GMC 3/4 ton I had also had 16.5's but they were of course 8-lug.

It's likely that someone found a good pair of tire on a pair of rims that were direct bolt-on. Nothing new on the farm!

I think I have one 19.5 wheel for eight bolt hub. I'll check.

I have parted several of the duallys like yours. Many had the 19.5 like you had in the rear. I believe the fronts are from a different vehicle.
