Stu, I'm new to this. Trying to find 6- 19.5 tubeless wheels to replace the Widow-Makers on my new 52 Cabover F5 4x4. All these posts seem old and most look like the wheels all sold. I can't tell what's still available or not ? any help would be great thanks. Ron G. Reno NV.
Agree it's a long discussion thread. My last post (#77 of 6/15) is the only set my son and I presently have available. It is a set of 19.5" x 6" Budd #89340 tubeless wheels with a set of nice tires. They are at our son's place in Portland, OR.
In our discussion about your truck in the main forum I suggested that Josh Madsen might be a logical source for you since he lives in Salt Lake City. Probably closer than others of us. He has, I believe still available, a set of 22.5" wheels with nice tires. The 22.5" wheel is the true replacement size for your 20" widow makers. Josh's 8-22.5" tires would be a match if you have 7.50 x 20s, while the 8R19.5s used on the 89340s will be about 3" shorter. This matters to some guys, others not so much.
Your third option would be to find a set of the safer 20" tube type wheels that have a locking ring on the face of each wheel. These might still be found in your local yards. Older Fords, Dodges, and IHCs are good donors. I'm not aware of any that are now available in the classifieds, however.
Those are the options. If you weigh everything and want to do the 19.5s please say. Stu
hey, my ears are burning! just kidding. Thanks Stu. and yes I do have some 22.5" wheels here. I also have a set of 19.5 wheels but told another member here from Colorado that he could get them but I haven't heard back, I guess I need to follow up on that.
Ron, let me know if I can help with your wheel situation. Might even be able to help with someone going that direction, or at least to Elko? Shipping is a pain if you don't have to, but don't mind.
