    I could be wrong. I see a lot of square body at the shop but hardly any 67 - 72. I had a friend with a 72 C30, that was very much a stock work truck, I thought it had 15" wheels on it, but I could be wrong it was a long time ago. So I think everyone should take my previous comment, and realize that I maybe miss remembering.

    I just went and looked and 15" was an option in 72 C20 & 30, but it appears 16.5 was much more common. Obviously our trucks are a little different from ours. Also what Grit dog says makes good sense, I wouldn't want to put a wheel on that may require grinding to fit. That's a no go to me.

    I lied.
    I have only had 4 sets of wheels and tires on this thing.
    First was the black set of Ford steelies that it came with...

    Second was a set of wagon wheels that Max pulled from the junkyard.
    I have a severe dislike for them, so they had to go.

    Third was a set of chrome modular wheels that were ok, just old and rusty.

    Last set is the AR Centerlines and those are the ticket.

    Here is a shot with the truck loaded with 2,000 pounds of scrap.
    Lowered to about where I want it to be.

    @Rusty Nail @Catbox we both know peer pressure is not good. If rusty said jump off a cliff would you do it? Have we learned anything? Both of you go to your rooms, don't come out till you've thought about this.
