    Long story short. Called Discount Tire and gave them all of my info about the super hard to get & fit 17.5" rim & tires. In about 1 hour, the guy found basic 16" black wagon wheels to fit. Same lug pattern. About 75$ each.

    Were these the "big six" 6 - 7.25" bolt pattern?

    If so, would you post the manufacturer / part number?

    Sorry I didn't post the lug size. These are for the 6 lug rims with the 7.75 bolt circle.

    Yours are actually esier to get.

    http://www.stocktonwheel.com/light_truck_wheels.htm

    Powerwagon 2, IH pickups, etc.
    Look on the lower right side of the page. White rims.
    I have a catalog for Power Wagons & there are a lot of web sites for these trucks. Look in their classifieds for cheap rims. Ebay. ETC.

    Am I reading this correctly? $75 a wheel? I called Stockton about a month ago and they quoted me around $190 a wheel for a wheel with that pattern.

    I'm curious about what IHC trucks used this 6x7.75 bolt pattern.. It was my understanding that they only used the 6x7.25 pattern? If /only/ 6x7.25's were available for $75 each...

    Diamond Racing Wheels carries two models of the 6x7.25 wheels, fwiw. $155 and $185 for'm.

    My S-120 4x4 came from the factory w/17.5 inch wheels with the 6x7.25 bolt pattern (5 9/16 center). They can be found in wrecking yards cheap, and
    Mile Marker makes a 8x17.5 mud/snow tire.

    Willamette Wheel in Oregon can change wheel sizes using your rims,for less
    $$ than purchasing new from Stockton or other suppliers. I am curious about the $75 wheel...

    Willamette Wheel COULD have done that.

    They are no longer in business. They are also very much missed here in Oregon. The rumor is they were bought out by a company who promptly closed them down because they were a competitor.

    Keep on Binderin',

    I'm here guys. Sorry about the late post on the rims.
    First, I was wrong on the lug pattern. I saw a post on the 'Just Internationals' site & someone said they had the 6 x 7.75 lug pattern. I assumed that 'I' had that lug pattern. The $75 is for this pattern.

    On the 6 x 7.25, the A120/B120 typewheel, I just called them and there checking on it now.

    Wrap up:

    Rims = hard to get in the 16" size

    tires = At cosco by Bridgestone (17.5 x 8.00 size)

    ps- might need that 17.5 NON SPLIT RIM after all.

    Do you mean COSTCO? or is COSCO another outfit?

    Michelin makes a radial called the XZE1 in the appropriate sizes (see below). I've done special tire orders at my local COSTCO before but they could not seem to find a listing from their distributor (maybe I'll check back another day).

    Michelin XZE1:
    215/75R17.5 catalog# 86976
    245/70R17.5 catalog# 73613

    I'm interested in checking out those Bridgestones - are they radials or bias-plys? Did your COSTCO stock them?

    Sorry to hear that Willamette Wheel is no longer.

    I remember reading in Classic Truck magazine about another company
    that performed the same service-resizing wheels. I'll try to track
    it down.

    I searched for three years.
    I finally used Diamond Racing Wheels, custom built.
    Flat center not stamped but I had to get rid of those tubes.

    Nice lookin' truck!
    The original Firestone wheels I had were big six 17" so I stuck with that.
    I bought 17" x 8" w/6 on 7.25" bolt pattern & 4.25" back space.
    The width, back space & offset may/will be different for your truck to maintain proper clearances.
    The Rhino is '68 3/4 4x4 w/manual steering.
    Diamond ain't cheap so do some research, you only wanna do this once and you gotta be happy with the results.
    There are also ways to have your centers set in new tubeless hoops. Logistically that was not an option for me so I bit the bullet.
