Mine was on the passenger side, top of the rail, about even with the engine
or slightly to the rear of it. I have a '56

To you guys with F-4 wheels. They are probably the 2-peice type
split in middle.No tire store will change them ("suicide rims") with
rust on seal areas (that most have) especially.Best way to have different
tires is to find junkyard sets and change whole wheel and tire.
I have F-600 6-lug wheels on my 56 and they are used into 70's.
Later ones are 22.5 with tubeless tires and will fit in place of older
20 inch split wheels w/out being too big. Yes, they are Budd wheels
with Large holes and nuts. If you try Firestone dealers they have
catalogues with replacement wheels for older trucks, try to
get a 8R 19.5 size like HD Chevy's still run or motorhomes.
They are not oversize, yet easy to buy, tubeless and radial.
Also, military wheels and tires fit 6-lug style, but don't know
if they have a 5-lug type. Lot's of military truck sales in
Nothern IN sell them cheap.

I had trouble running down the 7.00-18 for my vintage `53 Ross forklift. I
gave up looking ten years ago. I needed the tractor lug tread pattern or
something reasonably close. I didnt realize that the F-4's used that size.
Maybe I can run down some old maypops and keep this old lift truck
going......My `57 F-600 has the 20" split wheels. I dont look forward in
changing them anytime soon. At least I can replace them with one piece
wheels off later model trucks.

I've been looking for some newer wheels for mine also. I found a set of
newer wheels in a junkyard on a mid 50's Ford dump truck. They had the same
bolt pattern and were maufatured by 'Budd'. Unfortunately I was not able to
buy them at the time. They had a normal tire mounted on them (not the darn
near impossible to find 7.00x18.)
