Was wondering if Sherman road wheels were ever mixed together after a repair was needed.Like maybe a lack of 1 type so another type was used instead.Thanks for the help.

Check the strange wheel fitted on this french M4A2 (entering Baden Baden in 1945): five round holes in a flat dish. Home-cooked, no doubt, as French Army during the last stages of the war suffered a quite irregular supply of nearly everything.
