    They could be early m34 combat wheels. I can check the book when I get home tonight, someone will probably answer before then. I’ve posted the part numbers here on the site before in another thread asking about them.

    Porkchop is correct, early M34 wheels. Fits the 1950/51 Reo pattern deuce with the cargo bed with wheel wells. Post 'em for sale in the classifieds or pm me a price.

    M54A2 5 Ton (with Radio Body. ex praga command station)

    I don't think any GMC M135s were delivered with combat wheels, but what a cool upgrade!
    I doubt you will ever find a set of 7 in one place. I have 6 and I got one here, two there etc.
    Suggest pm the OP, he's looking to sell.
