Not 100% exact, but so close I couldn't resist.

If they're like the repops,they will corrode in 6 months.

I think I've got those kind on my T. They are 3/4", I believe.

The 24 pc. set is pretty nice. Enough for the spare AND a spare. Use stainless steel beveled washers underneath to protect the paint on the wheels from splitting...These are 13/16" troop

I've got about 19 old wire wheel lug nuts out in the shop somewhere I'll never use. When I sold my wire wheels for the '26 to troopers chunky little buddy I forgot to bring them along. Actually the wheels I sold the chunky little guy look a lot like those in troopers pictures.

Tom, you are the one who gave me the idea in the first place. Have they held up O.K. for you?

Lucky I have enough good ones to use on the spare and have spares. May have to get creative with the welder and make a locking one out of one of the old ones.

I know you have put a few miles on them.

If I had gobs of money and nothing but time, I would go for the stainless set and polish them all up. That just isn't going to happen soon.

I got some nice center caps from Danial and I just had to have nice lug nuts to go with them.

I heard about the deal you guys made... He sold me the wheels with the tires for $450. The speedster is sitting out in the yard on blocks. Hope its covered. I want that one too to compliment my yard art. He's out of the T game for now. He's working on a 455 Buick project now... troop

He went and bought that piece of... Now I gotta call him and start dealing on that speedster. If I told you I paid about 4 times what you did for those wheels and then took a little bit of a hit on them when I traded them to him would you feel good about it. Maybe I ought to forget about the trip to AZ and spend my money on his speedster.

Erich, those are the ones. I've had them for 3 years and about 5000 miles. I think they still look OK. I can't check on them right now because my car is at the body shop getting repainted.

You can buy those at any LOCAL tire shop. Why not support someone in your local town and not TBAY?

Dan, I looked all over local shops first and found many that were just not near the correct shape. Also they cost a lot more. I agree with you Dan, and buy local whenever I can.

Tom,.....repainted....?what happened?

I could be wrong, the angle on the ones in the link that Erich posted doesn't look correct for a T.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Dan Hatch on Sunday, December 09, 2012 - 02:00 pm:

They look just like the ones that my wife's store sells, mostly for trailers. If you want I will get you a price for them. Dan

Ken, the angle could be wrong, but they seem to work fine with washers.

Erich, when my buddy painted my car I sort of rushed him because I needed it for the Montana 500. He was never happy with the finish, so he is redo-ing it in base-coat, clear-coat.

That means your already sharp looking T will look even more awesome? I bet there is some secret speed enhancer in the undercoat.

Is the correct shoulder angle for the T lug nuts 60 degrees?

Is there something wrong with getting model A lug nuts for your T?

OK, I see it now, the '26 through early '28 can be bought from Mac's for.....$140 a set!!!!
Unpolished are $58.75 and chrome are $125.00 a set.

I checked an original nut and it is 60, checked a Model A nut and it's also 60, same for Ford cars through 1948 and Ford 1/2 tons up to at least 1980.
