Builds – Gerald’s 1963 CJ-3B

• CATEGORIES: Builds

Gerald recently purchased some tires.  They are Goodyear casings P 235 /75/15 with V-Grip Hot Cap retreads from Import Export Tire in Latrobe, PA.  This is a different seller than the Stone Tire Company I highlighted a few months ago.

Gerald writes, “The Rims are Appliance brand 13 spoke Manufactured by the W.R. Grace Co. in 1976, Max Wheel Load 1580 lbs.  Model 1058V5 15 x 8.5 wide.  The are 5 x 51/2 Bolt circe with a 3 1/2 inch offset.  Lug nuts are a special washer and nut deal.  Gorilla still makes them.”

We raced with these back in the 70’s and 80’s and finally found a place that would still do these.
