20" split ring replacements

Postby Grodr625 » Sun Jun 11, 2017 11:25 am

Currently my bus only has mounted 4 out 6 wheels 20 x 7.50. I need two more. What are your recommendations- should I source two more old school split ring wheels, or would I be better suited with one piece tubeless 19.5" or 22.5" wheels available online?

I believe these are of Turkish origin. Having worked in the aftermarket truck parts industry, I know some of the highest quality aftermarket parts are coming out of Turkey. But we never offered a 5 x 8 pattern wheel, just 22.5 and 24.5 10 bolt. What are your thoughts on these new wheels versus going with the older ones. Will I find any difficulty getting a truck shop to mount new tires onto my old wheels?

Another option might be these guys: http://ccsurplus.com/

They deal in military vehicles & sell one piece 20" wheels, with & without tires. They have an Ebay store too.

Ive got several of those stock 5 lug D400 dually rims. Can ship with the brake drums and parts if/when u need them. No reason a real tire shop won't mount tires on them if not damaged or rotted. Car tire shops are not real tire shops.
