Nice looking truck! But what about the FORD emblem on the hood?

Ok I see some major problems on your truck...Why would you not have all the hood trim on? and you should be shot for mounting the license plate UNDER the bumper! absolutely disgusting!

Just kidding! Welcome to FTE and that truck is amazing! even the pinstripes on the grill bars!!!Wow...very nice!
I have about the same thing in progress and Mine is planned for the same original meadow green paint. Congrats on the wedding!
Hope you plan to stay with us for more than just hubcaps!
edit: I just realized you joined in march 2009, so i thought you were new here, with 14 posts...
How do you only post 14 times in 2 1/2 years?

UPS has the box and says they'll be there Thursday. Should be good-to-go for the big day. Stu

Ha! The license plate under the bumper because I hat advertising for the state of Massachusetts and the truck just rolled out of the paint shop and I didn't get the bashing on till Sunday. I'll have to figure out how to post more pics once we have the wedding. And for the fiancÚ acceptance if the hole truck thing, she doesn't have much to say cause her fun car is a 66 mustang 289 car. She can catch up to me pretty quick when im in the 48

Nice Truck. Can anyone tell me what the rims are from. They look like the nubbies are to the inside of the hub for the hubcaps that Macs/Carpenter sell now. I'm restoring a 54 F250 and I'm in need of the rims that will accept those original style F250 center caps. Thanks.

Unfortunate that we never have heard back from the original poster, never got a picture of my caps on his truck, or heard if the bride-to-be was impressed or merely accepting of it. Or not.

Anyway, the o.e.m. wheels on 1948 and later F-2/250s were Ford 7RD 1015B, made by K-H and listed under their number 31282. They are 16" x 6" and have the "innie" hub cap mounting with the 8 lug x 6.5" pattern. In the early 1960s K-H changed their number to 43552, but Ford's remained unchanged. Our friend Bill (ND) says Ford stopped using them in 1969. K-H kept them in their catalogs through 1976. The National Wheel and Rim Association cross reference code for them was X40099, later changed to X45046.

When first offered they were fitted with tubes since tubeless tires didn't exist. Today they work equally well with tubeless bias ply and radial tires. A 7.50-16" or 235/85R16" are commonly used.

Alternatives if found, that will also accept the stock hub caps, are Ford B8D 1015A, Budd 70720 or 73240, which is a 17.5" x 5.25" tubeless truck wheel. Another wheel is Ford B6D 1015B, Budd 71410, that is a tubeless 19.5" x 5.25". Both of these sizes have a true 15░ truck outer rim, as opposed to the 16" having a car/light truck 5░ rim profile. They were optional on F-250s from 1956 to 1966. Stu
