Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: What brand of wheel are these??

I just brought home a '24 T Touring which is loaded with aftermarket accessories. I am not sure where these wheels came from. The hubcaps are siliconed in place, the original ones were threaded on. Thanks for any help. I will post more pics later of several of the other interesting accessories.

Maybe Hayes with a different Hubcap!

I think they're Hayes wheels too. If you're suggesting that those wheels are retro-fitted from a different car when you say, "I am not sure where these wheels came from", be assured, they're made to use on a Model T and are a VERY nice accessory.

Thanks Jerry, Bill, and Jay! I guess I meant I did not know which manufacturer the wheels came from. A local T expert is also of the opinion that they are Hayes wheels.

They are definitely Hayes, but look to have 26-27 wire wheel hubs caps on them rather than the Hayes hubcap which screws into a female thread in the hub. Apparently the previous owner used RTV to hole the Ford caps in place. Hope that helps

They look like Hayes to me too, but I have never seen 36 spoke varieties. They are typically 48 spoke. They have straight sided tyres and split rims so are likely 21". On the 21" front wheels I have, 48 spokers, the outside edge of the felloe is rolled outwards. Those appear to have a straight up/down edge like our standard Ford felloes. Beautiful reproduction Hayes hubcaps are available for them here, but they are spendy.
