Today while at the Virginia Museum of Military Vehicles I was able to photograph the front and back sides of a smooth dish road wheel.
This example is one of two types of smooth dish road wheels?

The only question in question... was the reverse side of this style of road wheel. Meaning was the reverse the same shape. Also since the VMMV is a "Working" facility and houses one of the finest collections of "running" AFV's in the United States we were able to see these wheels set aside from the intended vehicle now under restoration, an M-10 T.D. Of course these wheels could be used on an M-4 Medium etc.. Of note these wheels when received by the museum had never been issued so were quite new.

Since many IDF vehicles also used this style, it is great to see them!

I didn't know this was still in doubt.
