This is a Hayes wire wheel wrench obviously but will also fit #4 Houk hubcaps, opening is 2 3/4", I like it better than the Houk wrench because it appears to be heavier built and thus stronger, no cracks or repairs nice wrench. $125 domestic postage $15.

Layden, does it fit the Hayes wire wheels used on model T's? It needs to be the same size as a model T hubcap.

This wrench fits as stated the #4 size hubcaps. These are a heavy cast cap that holds the wheel to the hub. This does not fit the 4 bolt demountable rim ( Model T wood wheel size) hubcap. I have never seen any evidence that Hayes ever made such a wrench. I would think that when you purchased a set of demountable rim wire wheels you would continue to use the Ford wrenches for the hubcap and 4 rim bolts.

I suspected as much. It makes sense that there is no Hayes tool for the hubcaps, and that the T issue one was used. I made my own thicker one so the octagonal end on the hubcap is less prone to damage.

I do have the Hayes tool for T use which fits the rear axle nut, the front bearing cone and cone nut.
