Loadstar Wheels

Hi guys, I have a 1974 Loadstar 1800 that I want to change the rims on, it has 10.00-20 split rims on it now but I came across some 11R 24.5 rims awhile ago thinking they may works so I bought them, now looking at them I'm not sure, do I have to change out the hub on the truck also because it looks too small for the new rims?

Yes. You should have bought 22.5’s  Those are a direct bolt-on. Check some scrap yards because they remove all the tires before they process a truck or school bus. You can get some dang nice tires and rims already assembled for 50$ each .

22.5 will mount right on. You will need 11.5X22.5 to match the diameter of 10:00X20 and 10.5X22.5 to match 9:00X20. You should not run the 22.5 on the same hub with a 20 wheel.

I am in the same boat. I bought a Loadstar 1850 with 10 lug 20" lock ring wheels and 9.00-20 tires. As I understand 22.5 budd wheels will bolt right on as long as they center on the lugs rather than the hub, and 10R22.5 is a very similar size tire.

Kelboy what you have there are Dayton wheels. It is my understanding they make a 22.5 wheel that will fit on the same hub the 20" wheels came off of from what I have read. But I have no first hand experience with the Daytons.

Truck salvage yard in Colorado told me $60 each for used steel 22.5 budd wheels for my Loadstar. Not too bad.
