Stockton Wheel in California

Recommended Posts

Any members have any dealings with Stockton Wheel out of Stockton California? I understand they can take my split ring rims and cut out the center and weld that to a new outer barrel. This modification will allow us to get away from running tube tires and rim liners. Making it easier to get the tires serviced when needed as more and more tire shops will not work on the split ring rims. Our truck is a '55 Dodge C1 dump bed. The rims were only used on the '55 & '56. We are skeptical about having our original rims modified since we have not been able to locate any additional rims to experiment with.

I have been to Stockton Wheel several times in the past. They have been around since the horse and buggy days same family and had a top notch reputation but Not cheap!

About 7-10 years ago the company changed hands I heard but I do know for sure. Still have not heard anything bad about them though. Someone on this forum had some work similar to what you need not sure who.

Suggest you give them a call to see what they can do and just how much it would cost if so.

An internet review search on them was very bad overall!

 

Sorry if I mislead in any way.!!  😏

I've done two wheel deals with The Wheelsmith  (www.thewheelsmith.net/   in Corona, CA.   and have been happy with the service and product.

 

That being said I don't know if they will do what you have in mind.  If not, maybe they can recommend someone they trust.

   I have looked at Stockton also. The wheel they made for a Power Wagon was a flat steel disc welded to a drop center wheel. Looks okay for military style. I like the six air holes. American Wheel Specialist, In Kennewick,WA makes a 16" and a 19.5". I haven't seen a picture though.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to everyone. Don't have internet where we are so I have to wait till we get into town. 

 

1)DJ194850  We did call them. $200-$250/ wheel + freight.

2) Adam H P15 D30 What posts on here are you referring to? I have been hard pressed to find much wheel info on here. I know I am not the best when it comes to using a computer. What is HAMB?

3)LoneJackLarry I looked at the wheel smith on Facebook. Seems they are the better choice. Thanks. I see you have a C1 one ton. What wheels are you running on your truck. We would like to keep our originals and find another set to experiment with. Any wheels available in your local scrap yards? Apparently the rims/wheels we have were only used on the 55/56 one tons.

4) 9 foot box How come nobody talks prices???? How about a photo of your wheels? American Wheel Specialist has a Facebook page but not sure they manufacture wheel/rims.

5) Badh4660 Wheel looks good. How did you decide on the width? Wonder if we can do wider on the rear and stay the original width on the front? I don't see why not since our rim design has the ability to mount as duals.

 

Thanks all for your reply. Randy

Yes, the rims used on the one ton were machined so you could mount two together to form the duals. The holes for the lug nuts are bevelled on both sides of the rim as to keep the lugs from vibrating loose. Hence the rarity of the rims. Thats why I am reluctant to have them altered.

JBNeal do you still have your one ton???? The rims seem to be similar to mine. But I have never seen them on an older truck. Mine are the 5.50F x 16.
