Anyway, they are steel, proper thickness and strength, nice and round, etc.

Unverferth is a long time agricultural equipment manufacturer that also makes wheels. Interesting read. [unverferth.com] If their wheels will hold up some of the stuff the make them for, they'll probably do fine for your Big Bolt.

I called many salvage yards around here, even a big truck yard. No one seems to have those older trucks around anymore. A lot of junkyards scrapped EVERYTHING back when the price of scrap was way up about 10 years ago. It was pretty crazy to see huge empty sandlots where used to be 20-40 acres of vehicles previously. There have to be some around somewhere though I imagine, I may just have to expand my search to different states maybe.

Calling gets you no where...you need to put the boots on the ground and walk the truck yards...the guy on the phone won't know about the rims piled in the back of a truck body that's been pushed in the corner for decades.

If you have private school bus contractors you might try them as well...sometimes they have a rim pile out back...

So true: I was looking for 7.50-20s tires in a large junk yard several years ago. They said they didn't have any, as I walked thru the building there sat a like new set of BF Goodrich 7.50-20s mounted on widow maker rims. Just had to find some that knew how to dismount them.
