1962 Chevy C40 factory rims or replacements

I have a 1962 Chevy C40 that I had all 6 rims stolen off of. I haven't been able to locate the rims from any sources and was wanting to see what you guys have done to replace them. The truck is all original and I really don't want to swap out the front end unless unless it is my only option.

Also what is your goal in tire size. Lot of variables here. Split , non split tubeless etc

Re: 1962 Chevy C40 factory rims or replacements

We run a wrecker service. I once had an 1983 F600 rollback that had the locking ring wheels. No one wanted to work on them. The local truck parts place wanted $200 per wheel, the new style. I went to the International dealer and even though it was not an International, I was able to order them for $125 each. They just wanted the bolt pattern and rim size.

They are the widow makers in 18 inch and 10 lug. I tried to give diameter and stud spacing to a few local semi dealers but nothing was available. That picture is exactly the rims I need. I would like to go back to those since the truck is all stock.

Re: 1962 Chevy C40 factory rims or replacements

I need 10 lugs that look like that with the small center.
