Can someone advise please? I'd like to move a wire wheeled 27 Tudor (with no tires) onto a trailer for transport. I'd rather remove the very straight original wire wheels first so they don't get bent during transport, and instead use some sacrificial wheels for the 600 mile trip on a trailer. Anyone know of a modern/aluminum wheel direct swap onto wire wheel hubs for a 27 Model T ?? Thanks. Bill
Make some plywood ones. Nothing modern that know of.
A space saver spare tire from the 80's or 90's worked for me once on '26 - '27 wire wheel hubs, but I don't know what they were from.
You might measure your hubs and / or take one of them to a salvage yard and see if you can find something that will work.
They are 5x5 bolt pattern which is the same as 72-98 Chevy half-ton 2wd pickups, 77-90 Caprice (wagon and police only) and 91-96 Caprice (all). Also Buick/Olds of the same years.
I had to make the plywood wheels when I had a similar wheel problem on a T. I wish I would have known of the modern wheels from a gm product. Tim
Thanks all. I thought about the plywood solution but will probably make a trip to the parts yard and get some cheap GM bolt ons - that's valuable info. . didn't know that . . thanks again! Bill
