Late 50's early 60's
could someone that knows for sure please tell me the exact sizes and brand of the tires and wheels on Tom's roadster?
the fronts I'm assuming are 5.60x15 firestone, but the rears look smaller than 8.20x15...7.10?...7.75?
wheels look to be American Torq Thrust...15x6 all around?...or 15x5 fronts and 15x6 rears?
also, what rear axle was he running that made the wheels stick out that far...chevy?
Thank God this didn't turn into a mass of pictures of what some Chevy guys call "Deuces", the early 60s Chevy II's. Ford Deuces in any era are great cars, you can't get from there to here in just one step.
A transition car from late '50s to early '60s.....Woodward/East Roadster
One of my favorites of all time!
This roadster does 'it' for me.
From what I recall from my research it is 5.60's & 8.20's -- that's what is on the Brizio restoration. That's also what I run on my roadster with 6" Torq Thrusts in front and 7's in the rear.

There was a coupe body or sale on the HAMB that matched this one exactly. Same exact features with no firewall.
great pics keep them coming.
Thanks Mpls 40

Here is the '60's deuce I'm redoing. Putting back as seen in the pics with a few improvements
Daddy O is that 60's or 70's styled? What else did you find out about it? Ever figure why they did the front end like that?
Dadyo, Thats cool, Don't change too much. Thats super individual as is.
Just saw this one on Hot Rod Magazine's Facebook page...anyone know anything about it?
You should post a pic of yours, it looks like it drove right out of the 60's!
Are you ready for some 32s
