Thanks for the great advertising photos, Herb !

Here's the set going on my wife's F.C. rig - notice the car has 4 lug nuts (incorrect ones as the original brass ones are at the polisher) and the truck has 5.

Anyone happen to have or know of a spare 23" wheel that could be made available ???

So were there different hubs used with the Budd wheels on the Model T Ford?

Yes, there is a hub piece with the studs made especially for those wheels - front and rear. I'll take a photo of the rears as they aren't installed yet. The Michelin hub piece bolts together using original Ford front & rear hubs. I replaced all the bolts w/AN bolts, washers, lock nuts & safety wire.

Herb,A preview of things to come! On trucks there was Budd and Dayton wheels the Budd the closed center and the Dayton open center.Dayton's on trucks are starting to be a thing of the past! Bud.

Bud, have you noticed any of the container trailers up around your way? They run through this area a lot, and I'd bet at least half of them are running 10.00-20 bias ply tires with flat base(non tubeless) Dayton wheels on them still. Some have the tubeless 22.5 Dayton wheels and tires on them, but most(that I've seen) are running the flat base wheels and most of them wobble. I don't understand their logic. Dave

David,Out in the country we don't see many container trailers but if your talking about just the running gear yes.The farmer i truck for bought 10 or 12 frames and used them for bridges for center pivots . Last year he bought 3 36' Macs six leg's 3 up 3 down with polished alum budd's.Anymore it seems like everything has polished Budd's.Very nice wheels Steve!! Bud.
