Wheel rarity

I just picked up a Rrc swb and it came with some steelies, the part number I got off of them was 526753 and I was wondering if this is a rare wheel or not so much. They're 15" steel rims and from a quick google search I was able to find that they came on late series trucks that were North America specific but that was all. Could someone please elaborate, please and thank you!

Post a pic so that we don't have to google it as well. . But if they're the steelies 15" x 5.5" that I'm thinking of, then they're not rare at all.

I had the 15" series wheels on my 1970 SIIA88. Nothing particularly special about them AFAIK. The story was that coupled with shorter tires it led to slightly better acceleration. It was still sloooow.

Those are the wrong wheel nuts. Those are for alloys. You need steel wheel nuts.
