Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Wheel felos

I have a square felo rear wheel currently on my 1910 T and all the rest are round. I know my car is supposed to have 5.5" hubs but these are 6" and I may just use them until I find or make the correct ones. Can I pull all the wood off the square felo wheel and have Stutzman make the correct matching felo for it? I guess the real question is are the hubs and rims the same regardless of the felo?

I thought so; thanks Tom! BTW, any word on my front axle?

Bill, in my experience, square felloe wheels have round spokes. The spokes on an 09-10 wheel are teardrop shaped and much finer than the square felloe type spokes. If you are going to make it correct it would be better to have Stutzman rebuild the whole wheel.

Hope this helps.

Allan, I was indeed planning on all new wheels; I just wanted to be sure I could use the hub and rim with the correct spokes and felo.

Bill, if you are going that far I would put new rims on also. You will never regret it.

I had Stutzman make 4 wheels with new rims for my 1910 Roadster. The wheels were correct and looked good. I took the 6 bolts out of the new wheels to install new bolts with correct heads. With all bolts removed the hub fell out. Checked other 3 wheels and they were the same way. Hubs must be tight in spokes or you will soon have loose wheels. They are currently remaking 4 new wheels. For the excuse I was told my hubs were smaller than standard, not true. Glad no paint had been applied.
