I am curious as to what tire and rim combinations are out there. Does anyone still use the 20″ rims, be it 8.25R20 tires, 9.00R20 tires, or 10.00R20, or has everyone just about gone to the 10R22.5 or 11R22.5 ? Also if you are running a different tire/rim combination could you post up a picture ?

thank you

My fire truck has stock sized 8.25x20 tires on dayton rims. They are still available. I had a flat last year in the middle of nowhere, SD, and the guy at the local store had the tube in stock in a town of 150. Harder to find in the city due to the volume.

I switched to 10x20 in the back, and although it gave me an extra 10% wheel speed, there was a corresponding drag on the 304.

You can buy non-split rims that will fit. It's a safety item, and tubeless tires are really a lot more convenient in many ways. Be ready to pay for them, though. Those old tube tires are still half the price of the radials.

allen,
it looks as though i have finalized the purchase of a 1955 r-120 4x4 pickup....I have not taken delivery of the truck yet...but, my biggest concern is with the split rims...what is your input as far as keeping them and overcoming all the concerns or getting rid of them and turn to "whom" in terms of regular rims...your input would be appreciated...i am new to ihc ownership...

The tires for those rims are available, and any old time truck place can mount and repair them. The R120 should have 6 on 7.25" budd pattern wheels, usually 16" splits. They were used by IH through 68. There are larger patterns, but it's all the same stuff. Bias ply tires with tubes in them were the standard.
