The rims are 19.5's and I purchased them from the kit is SWWC2A. The truck has a 14 bolt rear axle which made installation easier and I drilled out the front the front hubs for larger studs. The kit comes with 4 aluminum and 2 steel rims with center caps. The only problem I had was the steel rims in the kit were closer to the rear springs than I liked but I had some other rims that solved that problem. I also changed the center caps to GM center caps so that meant installing metric studs which is no problem because the metric and standard studs are the same size where they press into the hubs.

A teacher, but always an apprentice.
They look like Dexstar trailer rims. P/N : Am20766.

I used these on my one ton with a 215/85/16 (IIRC). They cleared my Canadian tie rods with about 1/2” of clearance. You lose about an inch of ride height. This combo has been great on my 1951 1 ton. I still have to rivet on my original hubcap clips, but haven’t got to it in over 1500 miles!

Here is a link of my build showing these rims. I also attached a picture of it completed. I’d use these rims again in a heartbeat. The only negative I have to say about them is that they didn’t clean off the welding spatter 100% on the backside, so there are bumps in the paint around the backside welds. This stopped me from giving a 5/5 rating. I gave 4/5.
