Fred, I will be no help whatsoever. I have known for a long time that such wheels existed, mostly from a handful of original era photographs. I cannot recall ever seeing a set in person.

Don't you just hate it when you see something like that on the internet, and just know that you have to try to get a set?
I know that when I saw that picture, I had many thoughts of how much I would like a truck with them. But, then, the last thing I need right now is another project I don't have time and money for.

I do hope you find and get a set, and also wonder what became of those in the picture.

You know...

If a guy had enough good 20" Firestone rims...
And knew a guy with a CNC plasma cutter...

A little ambition and a few tools could make brand new wheels.

The adapters would be a bit of a lathe project... But not impossible

I think I could make a set or two of these next year as I'll be set up for stuff like that.....but in order for me to do it as it's not something I'm wanting or needing for myself someone would have to pay me. The reason? I'm setting up a business making some Model T parts and as in any business you have to make money or you might as well just give money away. My first quick guess is that it would cost as much as 8 or 9 hundred bucks to do this even if you found 4 rims, all the same. If there was a source for new non lock ring rims and you had 5 guys who wanted a set each, you then might make some money on a lower selling price. The key is new rims, and it would help to be able to examine an original wheel to gather the needed information that you just cant get from a photo. Also I don't think it used a non-lock ring rim, you just cant see it in this picture.

I would like to get one of these wheels just to see who made it. I have a hunch it might be either Budd or Firestone. They should be stamped.
