I'm trying to order tires and tubes for my Boss' Speedster. He bought four wheels years ago, but 2 have Ford fellows, 1 has a "P" felloe, and 1 has an "H" felloe. They are all wooden spoked. The Fords are 25 1/8 O.D at the metal rim and 2 1/2 o.d. wide. The P and H are 24 1/4 o.d. on the rim and 2 3/4 o.d. wide. So, what size flaps, tubes and tires, who has the best deals and are the P and H ones Fords?

Daryl,

The outside diameter of the tires are all 30 inches. The smaller diameter rims which are wider take a 30x3.5 tire. The fronts are 30x3"

30-3-3 = 24 inch diameter wheel

Thanks for the info! We were going to order from Mac's, is there a better cheaper option?

Tires are expensive to ship. Check with Smith and Jones in Columbia SC. They are a lot closer to you. Shipping may be less and almost certainly quicker. Then of course, if you are very close to Columbia and needed/wanted to go for something else anyway.....

Also check Lang's, Snyders, Coker Tire, Universal Tire. Shop around. Make sure you consider TOTAL price, not just purchase price.
