Hey all, I'm currently trying to track down information pertaining to those old super wide rear rims/tires late 60s and 70s Ford pickups used to have on their camper specials. So far, I've found about a dozen sizes, ranging from 16"x12, 16.5 x 12, 16x10, 15x10, 15x12 and so on....

Does anyone know for certain what the big ones were? I'd like to track down a set to use on my pickup to help up the rear tire safety margin.

Those were 16.5x8's on the super camper specials. there were a few that were 16.5x10. if you want some just order you a set of aftermarket wheels in 16x10 for the truck.

Actually, I found both an original set off a 1967 F-250 camper special and a company that makes F & G Range tires for them.
