I hope those are not 3 piece ford rims, if they are, you will need new rims and be prepared to fix all the brakes,
I under estimated the size of the bus and brought a regular car trailer. The owner estimated it at 5,000lbs and when I arrived I quickly learned it was closer to the ballpark of 9,500lbs. I have experience with the 3 piece wheels and F-500 brakes. My other project truck is a 1957 Ford F-500 with a 14ft flatbed. The 57 still has the huge 5 lug three piece wheels with no availible aftermarket replacement. I was happy to see that the bus has the 6 lug that is availible aftermarket in a solid wheel.
