- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler. [chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com]

General Purpose
Your 59 has 6 lugs on 5.5 bolt circle (6 x 5.5) if it's stock. This pattern was used every year on some model of Chevy truck from 34-now. 55.2-66 was all 6 lug, then 4x4 only till 98 then on all till now. However there were set-back changes and 16"-22" wheels and disc brakes allowance, which all means that you have to try it on a specific truck. Bottom line: they are used on a lot of trucks.... and Toyota and Jeep... Very, very common wheel. The pre 55.2 light trucks were all 2 WD, 6 lug, but the AD guys know better than me. They are now known as 6 x 139 or 6 x 139.7
