I've seen a few of these wheels in my area, they aren't too rare but are easy to miss because they look like ford wires. What I've heard is that...
It's a model A wheel with the nose cut off, the top of the hub of another wheel welded on, and put into a smaller rim.
Very, very very rare.
Quick question, Maybe I'm missing something and I'm way off here but why not just machine them out of original drums (like in the first picture, I...
New hoops are 13.5" ID and the old ford ones are about 13.75"
Awesome picture!! Those look like a 16" 1930s chevy truck wheel. Pretty rare actually. Anyone have any similar pictures?
No, the closest thing I've got is 16" smoothies, inner nubs but a different size and no vents holes. If you're trying to avoid wv your best bet...
At the very least, don't use [I]those[I] wheels. Find some nice ones, I wouldn't trust that weld repair on the spokes
That't not going to work. Original Ford center are larger than the new "loops"
FW's are the most common rally wheel, but there are people still want them. It might be worth about $50-75.

5.5" will give you more options with original Ford wheels but 4.5" will give you more new options.
You can do it using some adapters I sell, but to be honest, it doesn't look very good on a open fender car.
I made those wheels. Give me a call at 559-322-2128
An even amount of clearance on both sides.
If you're ok with the wheel sticking outside the fender, this would be fine. Most people don't like that. A 4.5" backspacing will also have a...
I should have just used a 15x7 for the example. It would have been simpler. Some people seem to be missing the point. This centers the wheel in...
I figured you guys might like what I'm working on today
15x6 and 15x7
These are really cool
Here's what I've been able to gather, in ascending rarity.
1)16x4.5" Post war Fords-48
2)16x4" 40-prewar Fords
3)16x5 49-52 optional for pickups...
Yes, I've actually seen them in many different configuirations. 15", 16", some with slots, some solid, there's also an artillery wheel.
Maybe he means larger diameter in the rear. If that is the case, there is a Plymouth type artillery like the ones he has but in 17". A pair of...
In addition to the aftermarket "Gennie" wheels, you could use a mid 30s international wheel, they have the 8" hubcap size and have a 5 on 4.5"...
5/8" is enough clearance
The Internet, where people forget about etiquette. So if we have a 15x8 with a 5.75" of backspacing it will have a frontspacing of 3.25". In our...
That's possible but most of the time 3/4" is enough, it just depends on the size of the tire.
It's the measurement you use when ordering custom wheels, or a good measurement to use when going through a junkyard to see if a wheel will fit....
9", yes. Thats what the "-1" in the equation is for.
Separate names with a comma.
