I thought buds were the type that hold on the inner dually, and the fronts are called hub piloted?

hub piloted are also called "metric" wheels sometimes since they have been common in europe for a long time, if you have hub piloted wheels, both rear duals would be held on by the lugnuts, not by the lug nut/cap nut that buds use on duals, whic means no taking off your outside dual by running the inside up on a board

Stud piloted wheels have chamfers in the lug holes into which the shoulder of the lug nuts meet to align the wheel. On the rear duals the inner wheel is held on by a thimble with a square drive on the end and the outer wheel is held on by a nut that goes over the thimble.

Hub piloted wheels fit very snugly onto the hub and are held on by single lug nuts with washers built into them.

Funny, I remember looking at the bus I bought and looking at the heavy wheels and thinking that I could replace them at some point with good looking aluminum truck rims. That ain't happening! And I have kinda come to like them anyway.
