Common, no. There is a list I think under the parts list at the top of the page, but they are obscure from long ago.

You can get custom rims made...Stockton Wheel in California list 2 different rims that they make that will work, the Hummer & Power Wagon 24 Series and the Power Wagon 24 Series. In the 50's and 60's, Dodge made a military looking Power Wagon with a 5 bolt rim pattern on an 8 inch circle and a pretty much civilian looking Power Wagon that uses the same bolt pattern as the M715...good for us as those are the kind of heavy duty we need for these trucks.

Their page is here: http://www.stocktonwheel.com/heavy_duty.html


You can also try Diamond Wheel in Milwaukee, WI...they have made wheels before for members in anything from 15 to 24.5 inch rims and any width and backspacing...at least 25-30 members have ordered from them in the past...though I dont know odf anyone doing it in the last few years...here is a link to there contact page:
http://www.diamondracingwheels.com/i...ter-contact-us

For some reason, when I try to load their homepage, I get a threat error cause my antivirus says their is a problem on it...weird...but they have made many sets for M715's and someone there should know what they are.

I think the IH “Big Six” lug pattern is the same as M715, also.

I have a set of Bob Cowan 10x16.5 5"BS coming on the market in a month or so. Having a custom set of axles built to go with H1 Hummer rims. Currently they have H1 tires on them 37"x16.5. I'm keeping the tires. If you are not familiar with these wheels he takes a stock M715 wheel center and welds it into a standard 16.5x10 wheel drum. So they bolt right up no issues. I run these on the highway at 60 no issues.

I'm hoping to start my CUCV swap by labor day. Will also have a set of Cowan wheels, 6 of them actually, for sale at that point. Mine are 16x8's.
