Default Re: Split rim, wide 5?

Did Ford have a 1 ton, in '37? I only see Model 77 Commercial and Model 79, 1 1/2 Ton Trucks as listings. The 79's came with 5 lug Budd wheels.

Great picture of the marking, Bob. So, now we know that Goodyear made some of them and from the width, they would be 7.50 x 15 LT tires.

The one ton *(or tonner as was the nomenclature of the day) was introduced in 1938 with the 5 lug 17's on a 6 7/8 bolt circle. No one ton in '37

Nice photo of the makers mark.
I'll take a look at mine to see if there anything similar.
