63-64 1 ton rims

Can anyone tell me what kind of rims will interchange .
They are 16 inch tires.
The rims I have are 5 or 6 hole dually set up?
The rims I have are split rims and most tire shops wont work on them anymore.

If you have an F350, there isn't any Ford wheel that will exchange.

1953/67 F350's have a 7.25" bolt pattern not shared with any other Ford truck.

As original, all 1953/67 F350 with SRW's or DRW's use 17 (or 19) inch rims, not 16 inch.

There is no 16" rim that matches the 7.25" bolt pattern listed in the parts catalog.

Look near the valve stem for an ID number, post what you find.

Ok I went and had another look at the truck.
It has 16 inch tires on it and so does another Ford 1 ton thats also sitting there?
I couldnt find any numbers.
On the front passenger side there is a 17 inch tire and the rim isnt a split rim.
Do you suppose thats the rims that are supposed to be on the truck?
The rims that are on it must be off what?
Dodge? GM?
Any ideas?

I took a few pictures and would like any info on the year as that grill I didnt think was a 64?

And im trying to ID the engine , I know its a "Y" but what size?

B5Y1015A .. Wheel / 17" x 5.5" / Split Rim / 6 lug / 7.25" bolt pattern / Use with tube type tires.

Parts catalog doesn't list a reference as to whether the wheels were used with SRW's or DRW's.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B6TZ1015A .. Wheel / 17.5" x 5.5" / Drop Center (not a split rim) / 6 lug / 7.25" bolt pattern / Use with DRW's / Use with tubeless tires.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Uh...I was mistaken...I found the following in the 1948/56 Ford truck catalog.

TCAA1007B .. Wheel / Parts catalog makes no refenence if this is a split rim, or not / 16" x 5.5" / 6 lug / 7.25" bolt pattern / DRW / Use with tube type tires.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The truck is a 1966.

The Y VIN engine code was not used prior to 1966 for F100/350's.

1966/67: Y = 352 2V.

The grille is a 1966, the upper panel the park lamps fit into was used 1965/66, as were the lamps.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The 1961/65 F & M Series trucks sold in Canada have a unique Canadian VIN, like this for example: 4991014L-195001.

There is no engine code listed in this type of VIN. It's listed separately on the Warranty aka Rating Plate.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The 1966's use the same VIN system the US trucks do.

First 4 digits: F or M35Y: F35 = F350 2WD // M35 = M350 2WD /// Y = 352 2V.

When you stated it was a Y, I thought you meant the VIN engine code was Y, which only refers to a 1966 (1967) 352 2V.

If I had looked at the pic, I wooda known it wasn't a 352 engine, but I didn't look at the pic.

No 352 (FE) engine used studs to retain the valve covers, no FE engine has the dizzy behind the carb.

If it's the original engine, it's a 292 2V.

IF that's the original engine, despite the 1966 grille and parklamps, the truck is not a 1966. Nor a 1965.

It's a 1961, 1962, 1963 or 1964, because the last year for the Y block was 1964.

The hood emblem was used on all 1961/64's, but only on six cylinders in 1965/66.

1965/66's with 352's use V8 instead of the gear & lightning bolt.

The reggie says its a 64 but other things had me asking.
The hood we just changed.

Well...if it's a 1964, the grille has been positively been changed, cuz that's a 1966 grille.

The upper panel and parklamps were only used in 1965/66, so they're not original to a 1964, either.

The front bumper is also incorrect, it looks like the rear bumper off a 1953/79 Flareside.

1964/66 F100/350's all use the same front bumpers. One is chrome, one is painted.

Take a look in the Members Gallery to see what a 1964 grille/parking lamps and front bumper look like.

Vinford the wheel in the Pic is a split rim.
It is a different style lockring, than the ones with "split" that you can see.

The inside diameter of that lockring is concave...basicaly held in place the same way as the "widowmakers" on the bigger old trucks, (Like my F 600) except, the widowmaker comes apart in the center of the wheel...picture a solid ring that someone took a grinder to the ID in two different spots....

Thats what allows it to come on and off the wheel..
A wheel that takes the regular style lockring with the split that you can see is a much safer design, provided you know how to work on them.

Hopefully you can find another 16" wheel..

If not Stockton wheel in CA can build you new ones...
If you go that route have them build you 1 piece tubless style rims so that you can run a Common 235/85R16 or 215/75R16 10 ply tubeless tire.

If you have any other "funny" looking wheels post some pics I'll tell you what I can about them.

Thanks Greg,yes I know thats a split rim.
Im trying to find some way to run 16 in without having split rims.
The front wheel on the other side is a 17 " and is not a split rim.
I imagine getting them built would be pretty pricey?
