Those appear to be halftrack combat rims. If they are a 8.25-20.

The wheels that are installed are 11-20 and all the halftrack ones I’ve seen have actual bolts for the combat ring not nuts with studs

Don't rule them out as replacements, we were fighting Korea in 1951, a little paint over the date and they would be great on whatever truck they end up on.
I have some similar wheels in the back corner we picked up which may make a full set if needed.

REO M-34 6X6.
These wheels were plentiful in the 50's thru early 60's.
And a Semper Fi to the Marine. :wink: :wink:

If anyone has a use for them let me know. Tires are dated 1951 as well and pretty decent

They were OEM to the M-34 in 51-52. Not made for the CCKW, the CCKW did have a similar wheel but it was for the 11.00 X 18.

These are too wide for the Half Tracks and Armored Cars. Always check the part numbers,
