I have a 74 F350 dual real wheel ramp truck, that origionally came with 16" split rims. I have found 5 16" non split dually rims, but would like to buy 2 more, but I am having trouble finding them. These rims use the alternating concave/convex lug nut holes. Does anybody know what years of trucks that these rims came on? It`s about time for 2 new front tires, & I`d really like to go with the one piece rims at that time. Does anybody see a concern about using the later style rims with the flat flange, used with the correct lug nuts with integral washers?Thanks.

I don't see you having any problems with these wheels,as long as you use the right lugnuts. I don't know where you will find them,other than a dealer or maybe a tire store can order some.

You have to be careful here as the new wheels you have may be hub pilot rather than lug pilot. Can you give me all the identification numbers off both wheels?

I talked to a buddy who has the later non indexed wheels on his 79 F350, & he said that the wheels will run out of round as the lugholes are larger than the studs. Anyway, I bought a pair of the indexed non split 16" dually rims from a local wrecking yard on Saturday ($40.00 each Canadian). They have a 1979 date stamp on them, and also have Firestone stamped in the rim. So I guess I`m all set.

KULTULZ,
Would you mind explaining to me just what are the differences between a "hub pilot" and a "lug pilot"...???

Thanks in Advance,
Ryan

I think he meant hub centric and lug centric. The difference in either
1. The lugs center the wheel - lug centric
2. The hub centers the wheel - hub centric
