I have a very large Budd wire wheel center that I think should be with others of it's kind. I suspect it was from a much larger car perhaps a Stutz or something similar. It's in very good cleaned and primed condition. I can send pictures to help determine what it belongs to.

Budd made what they called "old" and "new" style and each in 2 sizes, simply large and small. Most that we see especially those 30 x 3 1/2 tire size sets are new small.
This is an old style large, it takes a wrench that has 2 pins:

This is new small, wrench looks like big pickle fork:

Layden, Are those hubs fitted to Overland spindles? I am considering buying a set at the moment but I think they are Overland front hubs as well. Does it take much to make the Overland Hub fit a T spindle? Also are the spanner readily available?

Layden, what I have is the center portion of a Budd wheel, the part that holds the spokes. This one is much larger than the typical center for a Model T. I will take a couple of pictures and count spoke holes next time I am at my shop.

Mike,
I got astray, you did indeed say wheel center.
This list shows the small center for 30x 3 1/2 on Model T Fords and Overland 4 series, the other listings for 5 car makes would be the larger center as you have.
