Re: '37 Touring bus

The guy writing the ad has a way with words, but doesn't know a 3 1/16" bore from a 3 3/16" bore. Yes Mark you are correct. And it would be a 21 stud at that.

Re: 20 inch rims

The '47 two ton had wider rims so I went to 8.25s. The '37 ton and a half is on 7.50 x 20s. I'm a tire guy, I vote for the 8.25s. The extra circumference is a big plus on modern roads
