Interesting rear wheels.

Looks like the front are the same too. Downright ugly in my book! :-)

I would say a cast of some kind, Fiat, British Austin and morris had similar ones that are cast iron.

I think it's a T T with rear wheels from an International or similar truck of the same vintage. You should never have to respoke them.

Someone way in the past showed pictures of cast Model T wheels for military artillery canons. Do not know if the ones in the OP's link are the same. Memory not like it used to be!:-)

Ted, I am thinking the same thing. Old Internationals in some years did use that design of cast steel spoke wheel, but I never thought about adapting them to a T or TT.

It looks to me like the front wheels are regular wood spoke T wheels, painted yellow to match the rears. I wish we could get a better look at the rear hubs and rear end. It's an interesting old truck.

Probably nothing more than an aftermarket set of rear wheels.

Typical period truck wheel. These were used on White trucks.

Not IH. Here's a 29 Six Speed Special front wheel. The rears don't differ much IF I have my head on square. :-)

IH wheel

Why on Earth do I think of those rear wheels as European?
