Does anyone know if my 15" six bolt wheels will fit on a 57 Chev Truck?

Thanks Jim

What size truck? If 1/2 they might fit if the center hole is the right size.🛠

Jim, the more info you can provide in your initial post about what you are trying to do will cut down on the amount of fun our resident jokers, myself included, will have. Sometimes trying to be brief or with holding information in an attempt to sneak something through (car questions) can come back to bite your backside.

To provide more information as far as your question goes............. the bolt pattern will be the same. Center hole and offset/back spacing is still a question the buyer will want answered. Good luck with your sale.

Jim
Don't let John and Jerry scare you away, they are just a little rough around the edges.
Some things they take for granted and think everyone knows it already.

Try this info on how to measure wheel bolt circle.
https://www.etrailer.com/faq-wheel-bolt-pattern.aspx

The center hub hole is also important and it's diameter should be measured and compared to the buyers hub.
Also the bolt hole diameter.

The aluminum wheels I currently have on my 53 3100 used to be on a 64 so I would think that they'd also fit a 57 but it would be advisable to get measurements to be sure before you ship them out.

A good friend of mine with a 37 Chevy sedan with the same 6 x 5.5 inch bolt wheel pattern , installed a set of 15 x 7 I think mid-80's Jeep Wagoneer wheels, that look like an old set of polished aluminum slotted Anson Sprints, that look great, and fit perfect, with an old school look too. There are some online, or like new from wheelcollision.com

With the possible exception of the late model Dodge Ram and Dakota 6 lug bolt circle, virtually all the 6-lug wheels will bolt on, including most of the Japanese pickups and the Toyota Land Cruiser. The only sticking point might be back spacing that could interfere with steering tie rods or the drag link. Inside diameter of the wheel barrel might also come into play, affecting brake drum clearance so do some measuring other than just the bolt circle.
