Does anybody know where i can find dually wheels for a 1976? I need the 16" that take the acorn style lug nuts. I've been searching and haven't been able to find anything. I'm looking for the one piece wheels and not the split rim. Everything i've found is either 16.5" or hub piloted. My old split rims have seen some better days and i'm looking to replace them.
They are tough to come by. Other manufactures used the same wheels, so dont limit your search to just fords. it took me about 7 years to find a nice set of 6 to replace my split rims, and once I did, it cost me 25 bucks per wheel.
I've seen those rings, i wonder if that would work with my simulators. I'll have to look into that. I've searched chevy but they are mostly 16.5". I bought two off a 79 in the bone yard, they were beautiful. Still can read the stamped part number with the ford symbol. $50 a piece for those. I put them up front and left the split rims in the back. I feel a lot safer now. Just need four more.
I feel bad for you I have so many of those lying around its not funny and the junkyards are packed with them. You also can't use them from a GM product with the small diameter hubs. Look at older GM , Dodge (Yes the new ones still use the same pattern) and ford trucks up til 97 and E-series up until now. You can score some pretty nice rims of a newer E series with DRW or any Dodge DRW truck.
if you get a chance can you post up some pics of what you have, I would like to see the detail of them, always open to learn someting different, wonder if that flat ring acts as the locking feature that is in the rim itself, there is a difference in between the newer and older budd/duallie rims, cause my 88 rims won't work on my 77 and vice versa
