There are three items that are new in this picture. The tire is a wide white wall radial tire, wheel is rebuilt with new rim, hubcap is a new reproduction.
Wide white walls were featured on all the trucks in the 1955 magazine ads I doubt if many trucks were sold with them but I like the looks.
I chose radials so the truck would drive better.
