Two piece split rim from your explanation i am gaining that yours are 3 piece split rim. I don't know if it is possible to post a picture if possible could you do so? Thanks

    I'm having the same issues here.

    I have a float with 10.00R15 bias ply tires, 15" split rims, a 4" wide spacer ring, all held together with 6 wedge clamps on 6 studs. I'm pretty sure the setup was completely standard 40 years ago.

    I blew a tire a while back, and since the tire was unavailable, the dealer upgraded me to 11R17.5 radials, on a special sumitomo rim that fits on the original hub.

    Problem: the 4" spacer ring allows the tires to touch. Dealers tell me there is no wider ring available. 4" is the widest.

    Any ideas?

    This seems to be a topic where pictures are worth a lot. Wish I had one handy.

    Does anyone have anymore of these 15 in split ring wheels? I am needing one for an '85 lowboy I have with dayton style hubs. Mounting 8.25x15 tires on them.
    Thanks

    How much of a hurry are you? I have eight and I'm wanting to move to the newer style rims/tires on my trailer at some point but wasn't planning till first 1/4 of the new year. I've already purchased the tubeless tires, but not the rims as haven't found a favorable price on them yet.

    Hello 1693TA,
    Are you still going to be replacing the older rims? Do they look like these?

    I have a customer who is interested in them.
