If your local tire shop is afraid of split rims, find another shop.
If they look like mine, with 5 lugs, Id like to buy them.

The pictured red truck is a 1952 F-2 Marmon-Herrington. It has the 5 Star Extra trim package upgrade based on the stainless windshield surround. From the discussion we had about it over on the FTE forum it has the 215 inline OHV six, first year offered. It is one of two I have archived with that set of features. The green nose is from a 1951 F-6, base 5 Star trim package. We know it's from an F-6 because the side spear says F-6. Many guys think the term 5 Star means the deluxe trim package, but not so. The deluxe package was the 5 Star Extra. Stu

Glad you 'splained that to me. If that hood was from a '52 it would have a round indicator on that hood stripe.

We had a '52 F-3 with the 5 Star Extra trim. It still amazes me that Dad paid the extra, but that may have been the only way he could buy that truck at that time.

I wrecked it in April of 1953 - not bad, but I wasn't supposed to be driving it (no license yet). All Dad said was, "Well, I was going to buy you a new Ford Hardtop when you turned 16, but you just saved me $2,300 (estimated, because I don't remember exactly).

Was never mentioned again.
