I just need 1 rim for spare, outside diameter is 24" and it takes 5 lugs to hold the outside clinch ring in place. Call me at 541/417-0258 or msphilpott@tnet.biz

Mike,

From your profile it appears this is your first posting. Welcome aboard.

Note it probably will not be as simple as having someone sell you a 24 inch outside diameter Firestone rim. Firestone made several different styles and of course sizes of rims over the years. Also several other companies produced wheels and rims over the years. And several other car makers used similar looking rims over the years. While you may not need exactly the same rim -- you will need one that fits properly / safely on your wheel/felloe.

Two postings dealing with some of the styles of 5 lug demountables – mostly Firestone see:

I would recommend taking photos, measurements and contacting Layden Butler a regular seller on the MTFCA for sale area (search his name – he has two ads there now); Don Lang at Lang’s old car parts http://www.modeltford.com/ , as well as Mark at Model T Haven http://modelthaven.com/ . One of them may have such a rim or be able to point you in the right direction.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Mike, I believe I have a extra rim. I have these wheels on my 17 and have a extra rim, but would need a good description of the one you need. Send me a email if you are interested.
