Default 1951 Clark Planeloader

Hope you can help with this.
this forklift has truck tires and wheels 16"
the wheels have no center hub and are held by six spokes
with a flange and one nut on each [ think old school tractor trailer] but they are not split rims ( are these bud wheels)
and how can I mount these in my coats 40/40 tire machine to change tires.
Is there a plate that sits over the wheel to hold it down and center it on the machine?
Thanks

They look like Dayton wheels to me, not Budd, and they look like a lock ring type wheel.

Do have any close up pics of the wheels?

Hi Kevin
The picture will double in size if you click on it twice
but I don't see any locking ring on front or back inside or out.
its funny I think of Dayton wheels on low rider cars (gold with spokes)
lots of bling
Thanks For Your Help

The pic is not good enough to zoom in on the wheels, they appear to be Daytons. They also are not drop center so they must have a ring of some sort. The steer rim looks to have a lock ring on it. On the drive the rings will be inside facing each other.

I am sure others know about this lift and its wheels.

Here are some shoots of the wheels
I think maybe these are split rims.
but notice there is no gap in the outer ring.
so does the ring make these split rims?

The ring on the lug side is removable, it's one piece, drops to the center and there's a flat spot that allows removal. The inner part of the ring wil look sort of egg shaped when it's off. This is a two piece rim, most tire shops won't work on them, maybe an old trucker will help you. Put just enough air to raise the lock into place, mount it on the dual set up where the locks are facing each other and finish airing. If it has to go back on the steering axle run it around with a load until you're comfortable before moving it.

Not split rims but a lock ring style. I believe that is a solid ring which will have a notch for the iron and 2 notches to allow it to slide off to one side.

Once you break the bead and the ring is loose it will be obvious what you have.

The picks clearly show that the outer ring is a separate part.

Take some time to clean the rust off the rings and mating surfaces so they work properly. Inspect the ring for warpage, the surfaces for wear. If things look iffy, find new rims and rings. They're nothing to take chances with.
