Re: Bad news from the tire shop...

For anyone reading this later on. Take the brake drum with you and make sure it clears the rim. My dad had a 62 heavy 1 ton that came with 18" rims. It took forever to find a set of dual rims that would clear those big drums. The problem was the curvature of the rim. Not the mounting face or diameter.

By the way, nothing wrong with Ford rims. I have 6 of them on my Dodge 5500. Picked them up for $40 and a 6 pack of Guinness. It wasnt worth it to me to break down the original tires and now I have a spare set of tires on the rims.
