I have my old 20" Alcoa rims on EBay if anyone insists on staying with 20" split rims or wants to spruce up an older truck or bus and be "period correct", 10 hole, set of 4, aluminum, stud pilot, and will sell cheaper than Ebay price.

dayton upgrade

I found a pair of Used 22.5 Dayton wheels and tires both for my 70's chevy bus, for cheaper than the price of new 20.5 tires only.



These were from a commercial vehicle tire company in Denver, GCR Tire. I called the 3 commercial vehicle tire shops, and this one had used stuff in the right size for the right price. $1000 for both front wheels and tires, all used, installed.



Attached are pictures of #TheBarbieDreambus old front tire with black wheels, and new (used, but new to me) tire with white wheel, same old black Dayton center. And bus cat.

oops, mislabeled pic

Pardon me, that old tire picture was of a rear wheel. Here's the original front wheel, 20.5", Dayton. Which was replaced by a 22.5" wheel and tire, still Dayton.

I have an 83 b600 I replaced my original two piece rims for 22.5 tubeless rims. Find the scrap yard that has big trucks and they will have piles of them. The Dayton style hub is a standard size and easy to find used rims for. I upgraded in two stages as I bought new tires and in two states. It only took me a few calls both times and I payed $50 a rim each time. Now I have tubeless tires that are easy to find and in stock at the tire shop even.

the 20 and 22.5 is the size of the center of the tire NOT the diameter of the spokes on the hub. as you found out the 22.5 is the tubeless equivalent of the 20 inch wheels
