Think it was Ron Cash for the resin ones. I got a set from a pal, believe that was where he got them.

Hope this helps...

Actually, it was Kelsey Hayes who pressed out the steel 5-slot wheels for the AA truck (Budd at that time was only doing body shells), but they were, and are available.

I used to cast them, with tires, under the All American Models brand, the late Ron Cash did the wheels only, without tires, and they have been done innumerable times on 24th scale diecasts, most of them very inexpensive.

One thing to bear in mind: Ford offered 1.5/2-ton trucks with those same 7:00-20 wheels, identical in all respects, from 1929-1952, so they are around in model form.

If they are the wheels I think they are, then you can find them in the Italeri Opel Blitz kits. The fire truck (tanker) was recently re-released.
