I have a 1964 GMC 4000 with a Coleman MC-9 steer axle. I have seen different style lug patterns for this axle during my research efforts on the interwebs. Does anyone know or know which direction to point me in to get the other lug patterns. The pattern I currently have is 6 lugs around the outer edge of the axle cover. any help would be appreciated. I will post pictures of what I have soon.

What are you looking for and why would you want to change anything on that? More "cleats" will not make it any stronger nor will it allow wider wheels. So what is your reasoning for a change?

I have seen some coleman axles with what appears to be 10 lug wheel patterns, which I would like to get to, and have the ability to run 22.5s

Just use 22.5 spoke type rims. Just be aware no matter what style wheel you may be limited in rim width.
Unless I am mistaken, Coleman just used the spoke type rim because it allowed them to have room for the powerdome without having to bolt the wheel to the center.
I'm guessing it is now sitting on 8.25 or 9.00 x 20 tires you could find narrow 22.5 rims and fit a 10x22.5 rubber. There isn't likely to go wider or bigger.

In case you were not aware, there is an actual "Coleman Trucks" page on Facebook which has numerous members with hands-on experience on Coleman axle and hub issues.
