Looking for a set of 21" Five Lug accessory rims. I believe they were made by Firestone.

Thank You,
Larry

Do you mean 23" for 30x3 1/2 tires?

Hello Layden,
Looking for the Five Lug Rims that take a 4.40-4.50 21" tire.
Larry

Can you post a picture?
For wood or disc wheels?
Are the lugs attached to the rim or loose?
Any help would be useful.

Attached are some photos of the wheels. They are disc wheels and it is my understanding after talking to Tim Moore in Michigan that they were produced by Firestone. They have a spacer plate that is the same thickness as the spokes on a Model T wheel and were designed to simply bolt your original Model T hubs to them. I also spoke with Joe Bell who at one time had the rims for these and it is my understanding that the lugs are attached to the rims.

Larry,Man those are gorgeous wheels. They look sort of like the type that take a full ring rather than lugs or wedges,Tuarc and Hayes,probably others made that style. I have one 21" rim that is drop center,does not have a split,no bolt holes or lugs but I can't picture it working on these wheels. I'm still looking tho as I have time and see if I have anything else to offer. Your wheels definitely need to be completed and put on a car. Steve

I May eventually have to go with new rims but will keep looking for now.
