These are 8R19.5 Bridgestone R187 steel radials. Slightly smaller diameter at 33.6" though.

not gonna happen tomorrow

7.50 on a 20" rim for a TRUCK is not very likely to happen on a "I have to have it today." basis

This is now a special order size.... I would send you to the Coker tire site... I see maybe five that will work. It Would be really good if you knew how much load this tire has to carry. If the weight is small enough, this might let you go to a car tire.. provided the load rating will fit.

dont be shocked at 250 to 400 for each tire. These are an obsolete size. 1972 not so much. but 2022 ......

I think you might some at simpletire.com but I dont think so....

You have to know what kind of bead is on the rim to make certain the tire matches.... check and recheck by actually talking to a human at coker tire

power kings 7.50-20

These seem to have been the most widely sold until very very recently. I suspect shipping hold ups and chinese manufacture has been shut down due to virus. I dont think power king is usa made anymore. I bought a set about 2009 that were usa made.

Did you read the thread before posting? 2nd post cowlitz said it's an old and obsolete size for a road tire. That hasn't gotten better in the last 5 years, and the pandemic has made it exponentially worse. Everything I show for that size is implement/ag, or the super old school non-directional military tread.

You can try coker, but it's likely a week or more before you get it, and you'll have a lot of money in it. In my experience, Coker is a niche manufacturer ergo they typically have niche prices.

Unless this is a restoration and you need to keep it classic with the 7.50-20, you should look into upgrading rims and tires to something modern.

without changing rims the most likely tire to find would be a 9R20, they are still out there floating around.. although like Booyah says the best would be to update to a modern 22.5" rim (or down to 19.5" if you are on a stud or hub pilot type...).. for dayton spoke the easiest would be to go to 22.5" rim and a low profile tire.. ive seen plenty of 7.5 and 8" dayton spoke 22.5 rims in the junkyards.. and then you have a modern rim with a myriad of brands and tires to fit it.. (and important to me travelling all over the country is a size that most mobile tire rigs will be able to get if you have a flat on the highway)..

Wheels now, Waukesha, WI

I bit the bullet and replaced my 5 hole Budd 20's with new 22.5, 5 hole Budd's from WHEELS NOW in Wisconsin.

They are narrow, but they fit great and hold modern tubeless 22.5 tires.

Spendy, but worth it if you actually plan to drive any distance or any speed above about 45mph...

So smoooooth compared to the old lumpy bias tube type 20's.

Happy with mine. Most expensive upgrade so far tho....
