Yes, those adapters look new, looks like your set for tires and the frame of the truck looks clean and ready also.

Really nice looking!
Did you have all the clamps you needed or did you have to find some, and if so where might I go to find some?

Thanks,
Grigg

Grigg, these Adapters came off a '48 GMC 450 series roadtractor, in Georgia. The guy sent me everyting I needed to install them. I believe though, I have some just like them, that were on original Dayton wheels. I'll dig them up, & see if they are identical. If so, how many were you needing.

They look great! I like the color combo also. I know that these are really tough to find, just curious what the benefit of having them installed is? I know period correct wheels are getting tougher to find. Don

I've got them on for the novelty of it. Back in the day, Fleet owners with both trucks with disc wheels, & Dayton hub wheels, could run the same wheels, on both type trucks.

Nope, Didn't take long at all. Probably helps, that I've been a Truck, & Bus mechanic, for near 30 years.
