Picked up this '55 GMC a few weeks ago on ebay and drove it 150 miles home with only one problem.

Road side tire service

The 15" multi-piece rims on the rear are a mystery at this point. GMC only offered 16" rims on the 3/4 ton in the dual wheel configuration.

Anyone have any ideas on what or where they might be from?

I've seen 15" split rims on single wheel 3/4 tons before but these are a new one on me. I'm sure one of the old timers here will know something about 'em though.

Speed,

The fronts and the spare are all the 15" multi-piece single rims that you mention.

Based on the ID tag gross weight (6500), I'm pretty sure the duals are not original to the truck. The overload springs are also a completely bolt on arrangement.
