Hi all. I'd like to identify the wheel below. I'm sure the hub will give it away. Can you tell me what it suits?

Model T Ford of course!!

I am thinking the wheel is Hayes No.100 which came on:
Ford Pass. Part 1919-26
Ford Truck, Part (front) 1919-25
Briscoe All 1921-22
Chevrolet 490 (open) 1922-23
Overland 4,4A, 91 1922-23
Star All 1922-23
Part- some of the vehicles produced
Pass.- Passenger cars
open- open cars as opposed to coupes and sedans

Andrew, I guess your real question is...What is the hub?
Star is possible but Overland is more likely, especially if it has ball bearings and the flange comes off to the inside ( which it appears to do).

Andrew.

I forgot to mention that SAE Society of Automotive Engineers standardized the dimensions of the hub so the wheel is exactly the same on all those applications just the hub would be different.

Thanks Layden. I hadn't considered that I he wheel itself might be the same as model T. I couldn't see past the hub! If it had been a wire wheel I would have asked you first. I didn't realize your knowledge extends to wooden wheels too. Thanks for the great information.

Andrew
