I have a Fly & Harwood Pumper style fire truck with the original "duals".....They simply welded two regular Crosley rims together with a steel spacer at the edge to allow clearance for the tires...The center section of the outer wheel was cut out to allow access to the lug nuts on the inner wheel...They left the hubcap retainers intact on the outer rim to hold the hubcap...Bill C.

Subject: =CROSLEY= firetruck dual rear wheels
Did the Crosley firetrucks with dual rear wheels all use FOR duals or were other systems used? How did some of them have rear hubcaps where there were duals?
