6 Lug Wire Truck Wheel ?yr

Recommended Posts

With such a large hubcap hole, I am doubting Chevrolet. Chrysler had some 6 hole

wheels, as did a few others. Is it a 16 inch tire for sure?

The tire says "17" on it, I think.

Hi. If you can give me some measurements I might be able to help. I'm looking for a 6 1/4" hole on the face where the hubcap would go. Overall diameter of 19 1/2". The bolt circle that the lug nuts would be on would be 5 5/8". If you can count the spokes this could also help as there are different amounts on the front vs. the back. JW

To me it looks like Chev wires used in the 30's.

If they are Pontiac used them as well.

Now, I have some wheels exactly like this but are 19In. Does anyone know what they fit? Chevrolet parts book does not show them but they fit a 34-35 Master. Parts book only show 19In. Standards which are 5 Lug.

19" wire wheel like your 17" truck wheel, with six lugs all inside the hub-cap area sounds like 1930-31 Chevy car / light truck.

As far as I know, all Chevrolet cars had six lug-wheels from 1929 thru 1948. The 1/2-ton trucks had six-lug wheels into the 1960's at least.

Dave, You are right, the 30-31 wheel did have a smaller hub cap. And the Standard Model cars had 5 Lug wheels not 6 Lug like the Masters.
