    I bought a trailer with these wheels on it and I'm trying to figure out what they came from. Looks like it used to be an axle from an old truck. Note the very wide lug pattern. Thanks 20200305_225014.jpg 20200305_225127.jpg

    Look into 1930's Dodge trucks.
    I think that is where they would have come from.
    They may be original and could be worth a few bucks....

    You're not the only one, I though VW wheels too. I also like apple pie and hotdogs. Chevy/GMC is why I'm here.

    We can add American thighs to that list as well...


    Chevy had a version of those wheels in the 40's I think.
