The following is a list of wheels w/the same pattern as your '40:

5 on 5-1/2"

AMC - Jeep (5 bolt)

Chrysler 8 cyl. & wagon


Ford All

Ford Full size P.U., van, Bronco

International Scout, TravelAll

Lincoln All

Mercury All

Suzuki Samurai

In addition to the wheel bolt pattern, wheel width, offset, diameter, etc., etc. needs to be considered to ensure proper- and safe- fitment.

As far a styles go, personally I like both spoked wheels (original style) or "steelies" w/either a baby moon or the "Ford" script, small "dog dish" covers. Wheels either black or body color.
