Question 6 Lug Wheels

Anybody know of an aftermarket company that might offer wheels for Ford's funky 6x7 1/4 pattern?
I'm missing my spare and I'd like to go with something a little snappier than the Firestone rims on there. But if someone knows of a source for the 17" rims I've got I'd be happy with that.

6 Lug Wheels

If you have single rears, try Stockton Wheel in CA. Ask for a Power Wagon wheel. Unfortunately they don't have dually wheels in this pattern and are not interested in making them, at least in 2001.

They do have 8-lug dually wheels which are very nicely built - I even asked if they would sell me a "blank" set without lug holes and I'd get them drilled at a machine shop, but apparently they subcontract from somewhere else and weren't interested in helping .

Good news!

The situation has changed since my last inquiry and Stockton Wheel is now about to issue a dually wheel for the 6 x 7.25 inch unobtainables. I contacted them and received the following reply (with permission to post it here):

Frank@Stockton says: "The proto-type dual tubeless wheel is done. We are working on the fixture or attachment of the wheel. It fits fine on my '60 and '66 F350 dually. Basic problems will be fitment on various years of Ford, International and Dodge. My '60 and '66 F350's have been the test vehicles. Other brakes systems and drum configurations will probably not allow this tubeless wheel to clear the brakes."

So it looks like we ('61-'66 F-350 dually owners) will be in luck, at long last, and can get rid of those dangerous and rusting split-rims.

Charles, that is great news!!! Please keep us up to date with what Stockton has to say about these. Especially price.

Didn't you already solve your problem though. I remember someone saying they had a machine shop take an 8 lug wheel, fill in the holes and re-drilled. Was that you? If so how have they held up?

Also, the little 223 in my 61 F-350 dump truck cracked, so I am putting in a 390!! I'll finally get this thing to go over 45mph!!

Yes, the redrilled rims were mine. They are holding up just fine - although I have hardly put any miles on the truck since I only used it to haul junk to the dump (and occasionally help someone move). I'm going to pull them to check the front brakes anyway so I plan to lightly sand the fuzz-rust off the welded areas and primer/paint the centers to prevent any further corrosion.

I'm not sure what to expect on price but it has to be cheaper than what it cost me at a machine shop to weld and redrill! Stockton's 8-hole "standard" dually rims were around $80 apiece last time I bought them - although that was about 3 years ago.

Feel free to nag them yourself to encourage the process of bringing them to market

If you're going to put a 390 in you'd better change those 5.83 rears or you still won't be going much over 50...

I wanted to go with the more modern 351W or 460, but happened to ru across a good 390 for cheap. But now I need to find mounts. *** lists kits for the 351 and 460 but don't see a 390.

Ya know of anyone who makes mounts/kit etc...?

6 Lug Wheels

I have two 1966 F350's. One is a flatbed with 16" 6 bolt split rims and the other is a long bed crew cab with 19.5 in 6 bolt standard wheels.

Last week at an antique store I saw an old Sinclair Tanker F350 that had 19.5 in 8 bolt wheels. I have not seen those before

1 TON,

You need to contact me. Besides the fact that we both own a '65 F-350, take a look at my user name...the first three letters are the first 3 letters of my last name with the 4th being my first name initial. Drop me a note. I may have found wheels for this truck in Texas. Stockton is not making the YET!
