    Ok I have a question is anyone running 16” original steel ford wheels on there hotrod? I am looking at a set but not sure if they will be the right thing for my 1927 T roadster? Would I want 16’s on all four corners or just out back?? They are off a 1947 ford .

    Why would you not? It seems like a good idea.

    A little OT...but it relates 32 SYR.jpg

    Here's a great (cheap) trick for running 16" steel rims on your rod with a Ford 4.5 bolt pattern. I used a set of 1940 Dodge 16' rims on my Sedan Delivery when I first built it (HAMBer Hamtown Al now owns it). 30's-40's Mopar rims use a 4.5 bolt pattern same as later model Ford 8', 9' rears & Mustang II's and bolt right up. The Mopar rims use "clips" to hold the hubcaps on, so I simply cut the guts out of the Mopar and Ford hubcaps and mounted the Mopar guts into the Ford caps.

    Finally got sick of the adventurous driving with bias ply tires and went to radials... sold them to a buddy of mine and they are still on his '32 5 window (600-16 & 750-16)

  24. I know it's been probably asked before, but any later rims available with 4.5" BP, and 16" diameter?
