This is my 26-27 layout, I was told that flaps are not used on this wheel configuration whereas the 1" Rim Liner is. If I'm in error, please let me know and I'll add it to this assembly.
I dropped the part numbers on Tubes and Tires since no two vendors have the same numbering system, I just called them out as their makes and sizes. I'm not even sure if Ford part numbers would apply in this case anyhow. Ford wouldn't have any part numbers for the tires being offered today.
Whilst looking for these sizes, I kept coming across a couple of brands sized 20" x 600. I'm assuming these are truck tires. But the one that is 23" x 5.00 and 28" x 3 and the Model A tire size are for? Is the 23" x 5.00 also a truck tire? I'm pretty sure that 28" x 3 would be too skinny for trucks, are they wood felloe tires? And that Model A tire...well I'm stumped on that one.
Correct on the rim liner only.
The title needs only a digit correction to 9 from 0.
600-20 tires are used on the later TT truck rear wheels (20" rims have snap rings) as were the 33 x 5 tires (23"split rims)before 1925 or 1926.
28 x 3, I believe are used on the Model N and some other cars.
The Model A wire wheels are similar to the Model T wire wheels but are not interchangeable. Both the Model T and the 28-29 21 inch Model A rims have a rounded tubular edge. The later 30-31 19 inch rims have a flanged edge similar to a modern car wheel.
Model AA trucks used 600-20 tires, initially on wire wheels and later on pressed steel rims. Tires were retained on the rims by snap rings.
Dan that 1027 would've been a reallllly early car
Ted, later TT's huh? Haven't gotten that far yet, still working on cars, but still good to know, I'll get round to TT here soon.
Was the 28 x 3 ever used on Model T? If so, which one, would've almost have to have been wood felloe I guess, but the type is what I need to know.
Does anybody know how that split rim with the clip works? I've seen a picture of one on Lang's catalog site, but unfortunately it's not very clear as to how that closure works...need to see it from a different aspect, than straight on like it is in that picture.
With 21" and later tires the rim diameter is usually given last, as in: 440-450-21, 600-16, 750-14, 235-75R-15, etc.
