Nope . Not a Navistar anything. They're for a Ford.

Hint #3 It's a relatively famous aftermarket part. Some of the old guys will know.

The important part of the question is about what engine uses them.

Well I guess this was a stumper. All you Model T guys might reconize this little beauty. It's a Roof 16 valve ohv conversion for Model T! One of the better aftermarket speed part available for the good old "T". Designed and manufactured by Laurel Roof it saw a lot of action on the early board tracts. !910, 16 valves on a four cyl. engine. Pretty neat! Roof continued his designing to include parts for the Model A and B.

Somebody jump in here.

I googled it BB and was impressed, very cool little motor. I could dig having a little speedster with a motor like that, driving a HOT ROD from almost a hundred years ago would be so damn cool.

The large Ford early V8 bolt pattern on the wheels, 5 on 5 1/2", what other American made vehicles used that pattern after Ford dropped it from the passenger cars in 1949? I only know of a few so there may be others.

You got it and more, I was thinking mostly the Chryslers would get you guys thinking, but alas, you are too good for me.
My trailer made from the bed of my dad's 55 F-100 has the Chrysler wheels on it that were on his truck when use to drive it to high school. I think they are late 50's, they have many round holes all around the perimeter of the hub area.

It's your floor.

I remember theso alignment pins some only had one some had one between each log bolt .if it had cap screw bolts ,if they had studs most only had one pin.

also the Hyundai SUV , has 5-1/2 in bolt circles, but most tire shop manuals list them incorrectly as 4-1/2 so I didn't list them to save confusion

ask another I have to go wash my truck to make a road trip tomorrow,

Do you know the exact year and model on that Hyundai? I am looking for a spare for my trailer, maybe they have a wagon wheel spare, that would be perfect!

Actually it is a Kia Sorento not a Hyundai as I thought ,I guess I should have looked it uo ,,
But that would not have been fair/: I tried to print this page but I don't think it will come thru

Akk jeep CJ had 5.5 the YJ and Cherokees changed to 4.5 bp,amd as far as I know all f 100 and 150 have 5.5 so a spare should not be hard to find.

I will quit editing after this ,but I believe the Suzuki Sanoria had same bolt pattern also and they came with white spoke wheels from the factory

I am after a wagon wheel style spare to stick under the bed of my trailer, this is great knowledge! Thanks so much, I didn't know of anything anymore and one will probably come in totaled at work next week and I would have missed that wheel, THANKS!

!983 was the only year that Corvette didn't have a specific model change, they sold the 82 version during 83 while retooling for the newly designed 84 model year.

I had a customer we were doing a 40 Ford pickup at the time for, he came driving up in his new 84 Corvette, we were VERY impressed, what a cutting edge car that was (at the time) wow it was sooooo different than past Corvettes, I thought it was awesome. Now, I don't feel so much that way of course,but at the time I was impressed.
