I just received a my new non-demountable wheel back and the rim measures 25" edge to edge. My other wheels measure 24'. My old rim was bad, asked the vendor to supply another rim (30 x 3) to go with my hub and of course new wood. What rim do I have? My new tires I don't think will fit. Anyone know what's up?
Jerry, I just measured the non-demountable 30 x 3 on the front of my '14 Touring, and the diameter is 25", edge to edge.
I also measured the non-demountable wheels on the rear of my car, and they are 24" in diameter, edge to edge.
How does your tire compare to the rim you just received?
Keith, I remeasured all my wheels on the car, all measure 24" including the old wheel that is rusted. I'm thinking the previous owner installed rims for 30 x 30 1/2 tires all around. Your measurements indicate (I think) your car has the right setup (30 x 3 in front and 30 x 3 1/2 rear). I did't measure rims before I requested the vendor to supply the replacement rim for the front, assuming the car had the correct rims on it. My car is a 1914 touring as yours. The vendor , I think, has supplied the correct rim for the front. My problem now is I have mis-matched wheels for the front. What to do?
Is the possible the install 3 x 30 1/2 tires on 30 x 3 rims? If not, I'll have to get a new 30 x 3 tire.
Hi Jerry, Well, I guess it's your decision. Sell the odd wheel you have now and buy another one to match the others you have, or buy another 30 x 3 wheel so you'll have two of the correct size on the front.
Thanks, I think I'll get the correct tire for new wheel, then get another 30 x 3 wheel and tire as you suggested.
Looks like those Canadians knew what they were doing!!!
Allan from down under.
Yes, the 25" rims are 30 x 3. That's the original front wheel size, but sometimes you find they've been changed to match the rear wheels.
