After looking at how U Haul tie downs the cars on there auto transporter trailers I was wondering if the same idea would work for my 1919 Touring car. Can those tie downs be purchased large enough for are 30in tires and where can I buy them?
I think part of the problem with the "wheel basket" tie downs is that they are fine height wise, but they are set up for wheels/tires that are wider. I remember reading on here several people who tried to get them to work.
It also seems to me someone had found ones that did work though.
Here's how well the U-Haul wheel baskets work on a Model T. Maybe you could find some that would work, but they won't be anything like the U-Haul version.
These are the ones that someone posted on the Forum not long ago, fitted up to the T's 30" wheel fine, they are double adjustable so that is how they fit on the T.
Since the U-Haul wheel tie-downs sometimes slip down to one side, simple twist the whole basket and weave them in and out of the spokes (back to front) and then cinch down tightly. That way it'll act like a locking strap on your wheels instead of a basket on top.
