    I was able to get 7 early spoked wheels an have some questions on IDing them. some measure about 17.5" and some 18.5" some of the tires are 16 and some are 17. all the red ones seem to have the same width and the other two seem slightly wider. im planning on running two of them on the front of my Model t. Does any one have and suggestion of which size to run or pictures of their front wheels? thanks

    The 17" are '33-'34 wheels and the 16" are '35 wheels.

    Tip: when measuring wheels, you need to measure the inside of the lip, not the outside. This is in both directions.
