I don't know if these would work or not, but I found these from Alan at Ma's Resin.
He doesn't have a size listed, but with an eight lug pattern, I'd guess they might be for a one ton.
Thanks for responding. I'd have to guess thatthose are for a bigger truck and older too. I know that some big trucks back in the '40's and early '50's used 8 lug wheels. Someone could probably sell a whack of the proper wheels like I am looking for if they could be bothered to cast them as a lot of guys are building or would like to build one tons but the proper looking, stock wheels are an issue all the time. I may have to use the Ford one ton wheels that are available I guess.

Here's a shot of a mockup of mine with the wheels I cast.
BTW, if you use the AMT/MPC '67-'72 Chevy, the wheelbase is short for a 1 ton. The 1 tons used a 133" wheelbase for the standard truck, 157" was optional. The kits are the 127" wheelbase, which is correct for the long 1/2 ton and the 3/4 ton trucks. Also, there was a dual wheel option for 3/4 ton, so that might be a route to go if you don't want to lengthen the wheelbase.
