  3. Changed my split rims to all Daytons on spokes after the first flat on a steer doing a slow motion turn ,the rim had rust &rot issues that you could not see and put all new 22.5 radials on my L model fire truck. I never did like the split rims ,for looks almost the same and safety is the name.
