Model T Ford Forum: Classifieds: Wood spoke wheel problems

Well I am beginning to see that this 22 Coupe is just a collection of parts put together. Not very good either. I broke down one wheel and noticed the inflator valve holes don't line up. Could this be a different years rim? Is it possible to drill another hole in the outer rim? Thanks for your help. Gary

I've never done it but I have a wheel that someone else did it to. It's ok so far.

Some year Chevrolet rims look like T rims but have the valve hole in a different place.

Yes, you can drill another hole.

Gary, if the lug nearest the valve stem hole is slotted, then it is most likely a Chev rim. As mark says, you can just drill a hole in the correct place, and if you don't feel like doing it, you don't even have to weld up the other hole. The Chev rim will also be wider than the T equivalent.

Hope this helps.

Gary,

You might want to put this on the forum page rather than the classified.

When I got my car, another collection of parts, the rims and felloes did not match up and the tires did not run true causing all kinds of problems with steering and wobble. I was fortunate to locate a complete set of 5 matching rims and felloes and used them to rebuild my wheels. You may want to look around for the same. In that case advertise in the classified.

Neil
