who made these wheels extra wide 15"

I was wondering if anyone knows who made these wheels ? I am buying a 1970 2a and if comes with a bunch parts and a few sets of wide wheels.

The wheels that are on it look to be 15x8 and then theres a set of the 16x6.5 wheels. These wheels look like the ROAM offroad wheels.

The ower says he bought them 20 years ago from a shop in California?

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics but I forgot my camera.


Thanks Ed

101were16. 15 were standard on certain year US series. The centers look genuine- so if the are 15x8 reckon they were custom widened made for flotation type American tires.

I would have to see a part # but they look like 16" rims from a 130.

Wasn't Stockton welding wider hoops onto LR centers, back in the dark ages?

Yeah I believe those are Stockton Wheel wheels. Sure look like them. Please let me know if they are for sale! They'd look great on the "new" rangie.

I came across a set of these in my friend's stock pile. Her's were 16x8. the weld marks on them looked to be custom and she said they came on one of her 109 years ago. I'll get a photo of them.

I fabricated some new shackles out of 2" x 3/8" cold rolled steel, I then powder coated them in my powder coat oven. I built them 2" longer than the original ones.

good luck with the pro-comp wheels, they seem kinda thin. UK MOD trucks have extended shackles like that but they use a third bolt and a spacer in between the upper and lower bolts in order to add rigidity

Hi Ren,
Well if you can bend the Pro Comp wheels well I'm your man, I lived my life...If you drive it like a racecar Fix It like a racecar!

I used 2" x 3/8" cold rolled steel which is stronger steel than hot rolled steel, know what you're saying, but I want to see if I can bend it. My whole life is a test.

LOL can't argue with that logic...I never had the pro comps but I've seen quite a few of them with bent edges. I bent a wolf rim this year so I guess I still qualify since they are probably twice as thick.

10-4 that, If you don't bend something you're not wheeling
