Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2013: Wire wheel nut washers

Does anyone use these? Do they help protect the paint? Do they affect the ability to tighten the wheel to the hub since they are not lock washers? Do the nuts come off any easier?

Any input would be appreciated.
Thank you.

i would also like input on these. Im pretty sure their puropse is to add rigidity to the rim. I was given a set for christmas but have not used them yet.

I use them on my wire wheeled cars to protect the paint from chipping.
I like them, the model A stores sell them.

Dad had 'em on our car. One or two of his wheels had a few holes that where egged out. these worked well for that process. I found later that he just put them on a few lugs only that were egged. When I took over found the wheel wobbled too much , I put on all lugs and reduced wobble. I need to rebush the front end because of this. Be sure to use on all lugs.

Saves the paint, especially if its powder coated or some hard catylized urethanes. Dont forget a drop of anti sieze on the threads! troop

If you have powder coated wheels, remove the coating from the lug holes. It keeps them from chipping there.
