    Where are all of these wheels coming from? There are 3 sets listed on the HAMB classified just today. Since I joined I have seen thousands listed on the HAMB. There must be a lot of '35 Fords out there without their original wheels.

    The reason there are so many '35 wheels is because "back in the day" it was cheaper to buy a new set of 16" wheels and tires than to buy new tires for your 17", 18" 19" or 21" Ford wheels

    Thank you, that is a good reason, cheaper replacement tires.

    ...Pluss you add in the Motor Wheel and Kelsey Hayes versions that frequently get mis labled as '35 wires, and that adds a bunch more.

    I find them everywhere it seems.

    I went to a farm that only had tons of '50s stuff and complete '50s cars, but laying right in the grass, next to the driveway....
