    anybody have a pic of the hub where the rotor mounts? whether if be a hallcraft or total performance wheel. i guess while we're at it, a pic of the caliper mount also.
    with both those companies gone, is anyone selling a spindle mount laced wheel/disc brake kit for a T bucket now?

You can put calipers on but they will be small given the spoke wheels and small footprint of the tire.

  6. Might contact Hall Craft wheels. That's been a major spoke wheel co for years. I did not search for them direct.

    I ran hallcrafts on a Total Performance T in 1980.Look real cool with 3.00x18 tires,but not very good on turns.The tires would scrub,and try to roll off the rim.They cost a lot,and I was really sorry I didn't use a modern disc/rim set up.The T should go into corners like a slot car,and mine cornered like a bus.

    i know, that's what i was afraid of. i have bent (40)spoke kelsey hayes with 6.00x16 firestones on it now with lincoln style drum brakes.
    i've been letting those guys on the photoshop thread have some fun with it. i have to admit, i'm really digging the cheater slicks and laced wheels up front. gives the car a whole new vibe.
