    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.

    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.
