Visited the King Ranch today (Weaver’s Cottage) where they showed a spinning wheel made from a “Model T” wheel. This doesn’t look like a Model T wheel to me because of the wooden inner rim. Is it for a Model T Truck?
P.S. They also said the crank was a Model T crank but I don’t think so. Perhaps it was modified???
It might be a felloe wheel. The spokes attach to a wood rim under the clincher rim where the tire mounts. Photo?
Looks like a 1919 or later Model T wheel to me.
Our 1922 Roadster Model T does not have inner wooden rim. Diann
Royce did you mean 1919 or earlier?
Base Model Ts came with non-demountable wheels throughout the production run. A flat tire would be changed with the wheel and rim still mounted to the the car. Most of the '19-'27 non-demountable wheels looked just like the one in your photo. The inner wooded rim the is called a felloe.
Thanks for the quick responses. Learn something new every day. NOW, if I could just remember what I learned!
P.S. I know this is my husband's 'account' but I am on a trip with 'old' girlfriends and he told me to be sure and sign my name to any posts! LOL
