I've found a good deal on some model A rims and tires (21"). I'm thinking of getting them to put on my 26 touring. I've got wooden wheels that need redone and I'd like to get the car on the road. I can always go back to wood later.
Question: I read in a posting from years ago that these wheels can cause the rear to "wonder". Assuming I get good adapters do you think I will have any problems?
Thanks for the input.
I don't know of any reason that the available adapters and 21" model A wheels would give anything short of excellent service ...you indicated that your wood wheels were in need of redo ...this being the case you should also determine the condition of the rear axel thrust washers and transmission ,front end and steering systems...always an optimist...gene french
Yes sir Gene, so far the rear end and engine are rebuilt. Waiting on the transmission. Still need to check the front end and steering. It's getting close after a longer than expected wait! Thank for the input.
Hi, Rick. My friend, Jim, now deceased, had Model A wheels on two of his Ts using the adapters available from the vendors. I drove one of these cars extensively, the other one not much, and noticed no problems. Both cars drove fine with no wandering. Only problem I could see was that a set of the adapters cost neighborhood of $400. Good luck with your project. Bob
I agree with the above, But will add make sure the Model A wheels are true radially and axially then you will minimize any other problems.
Bought one set made a set even made a set to use on a TT truck all worked fine
