LEB Paul/Kris

This question is to everyone really, I just know the LEB crew has the knowledge I'm looking for.

So my new work truck is running the old military split rims with ND Coopers. I know of Staz and USA 6X6 that sell wheels in this pattern but have also seen chitty reviews for both. Are there any other companies that offer a 1pc wheel that's worth a damn?

And the second part of the question is, what's your thoughts on running adaptors to run 10hole 22.5/24.5/etc?

Thanks in advance guys.

Just throw 10.00/20s on it and go. Your wheels now are 20s, right?

It's the 6 bolt hubs that give the trouble... I have Daytons on mine.

9.00x20, I like the tires, not the wheels. I would like to ditch the split rims.

Trouble finding replacements. The military style wheels commonly are split ring, not the rim. Near as I can see, you do have the true split rim, as I can't see any rings on the front wheels. Split rings aren't that big an issue, the split rims are a real chore to do and are hard to get right, which is why they have a tendency to blow apart.

I have seen somewhere that the newer 6 bolt rims that are still used on some medium duty trucks are the same bolt circle, but I can't personally validate that.

That is a split ring. The widow makers actually split in the middle of the rim. Split rings aren't a big deal.

Awesome, I looking at tires for the truck and was seeing a bunch of talk about military split rims and I was getting a bit worried...

A lot of people lump split rims and split rings together. They are nowhere near the same though as far as servicing goes. Split rims are not really road legal , while split rings are still very much legal. My Daytons are also split ring. The only difference there is that they mount by pinching the rim in place, not bolted at the hub. The military rims often are also split ring.

How easy/difficult are they to service? noticed I have one tire a bit smaller in diameter today. Might have to find a tube since I believe these are tube type tires...
