The 89340 is the Budd number. You probably found that along the raised drop centers on the concave sides. The others are February 28, 1976, and February 16, 1973. With those dates I'll assume they have welded centers versus the older riveted centers.

If your 18s are Budd products, and assuming they would have been produced near the Sept. 1953 date of the rims, the Budd number will be stamped along the concave side rim lip opposite the valve stem hole. Not an absolute, but that was their procedure. Earlier wheels have their numbers stamped on the flat surfaces of the concave side center discs. Not visible with the wheels mounted. I looked through Budd and NWRA references and found nothing to match, which is why I think they might be custom built. But there have been times a listing has hid from me. Thanks. Stu

Rims on M-H

Hey Stu,


I have had two other guys look at these rims, including the spare. The rim is welded not riveted. They are date coded 53 with separate single digits (guessing the month) The only other numbers were on the split rings. GYR6518LW*G.

Yeah, the rims and rings are understood. But their use with those centers is a puzzle. The welded center again suggests custom built. They have a nice look on the truck, but will keep me scratching my head. Thanks. Stu

Stu, As I was driving down the road the other day I saw something that got me thinking about this thread and the mystery wheels. It was a truck driving on the rail road tracks!!! Maybe that's where the mystery wheel originated??

Sure is possible. On more modern trucks the RR application I've seen is a shallow dished 19.5" wheel with sort of a doomed center disc. These 18s could be an earlier example. I saw on the eBay listing that this truck sold. Stu

Don't know. Listing was pulled saying it was no longer available. It was for sale locally so it found a good home. Stu
