Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: We're there different widths of rear rims for a Ford TT

Recently I've been working with a friend building a TT truck he has 20 ich x 650nch tires, he needed & now we have bought from different people a 20 inch Rim & snap rings. When we receive them we compared the two and found that they were different in their width. I personally don't have much experience with TT Fords and wanted to know if they made 2 different 20 inch rims & snap rings, the wider rim looks like it will fit the tire. The other rim looks to narrow. Any help would be appreciated .

TT 600x20 rims are all the same width, but the AA wheels are, I think, a little wider.
Bob's Right, what you are looking for is made of Unobtainium. I looked for a few years for mine.

John,
The TT Ford truck with 20" tire size used Firestone "DT" rims in 20x5, the DT type was only used on TT trucks. Firestone also made "D" rims for cars in 20x4 1/2, 20x4, and 20x3 1/2 ( 21" rims too in 4 widths). The DT and D types are indistinguishable except for their diameter and width.
So yes the narrow rim is off a car.
Even if you get the tire on, I doubt that the rim will clamp properly to the wheel.
