Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Please Help Identify These Wheels
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Terry & Sharon Miller, Westminster, CO on Sunday, March 04, 2018 - 06:59 pm:

Hello,

These wheels are 6 lug TT rear wheels, I believe. I can not find any name stamped on the wheel. The front diameter is: 22 1/4", The rear diameter is: 22 9/16", The overall width of the rim is: 3 1/4".

As seen in the photos there is a distinct recess at the lug bolt for some type of clip/clamp.

I need to know the manufacturer to ensure I obtain the correct demountable rims and clips/clamps.

The original wheels were the "widow maker" split ring, 3 piece rims, rusted too bad to use.

I spent a couple hours searching old threads to find an ID but couldn't come up with anything. I'd appreciate any input I can get to help ID these.

Thank You,
Terry Miller

They look like something for TT. Finding good rims will be a challenge. Good luck.

I think the are Hayes. The rims have lugs attached to them. See the attached post.

Mark and Tom,

You are both correct, they are for a TT truck rear end AND I believe they are Hayes brand.

Jerry Hoffman has been extremely helpful with photos and explanations. Mark is correct: finding rims seems to be the challenge.

Thank You All, Jerry, Mark, and Tom. I appreciate your help more than I can write.

Cheers,
Terry

The snap rings are used on 20 inch TT wheels with a 6.00-20 tire. These rims measure 22-1/4 front diameter. It would seem to me if they are TT they would use a 33 x 5 tire, with the split rim. Its possible they are for something other than TT if the are set up for snap rings.

I'll take a look- I remember seeing/moving some TT rims my Dad had kept for possible spares for our Gramps' TT with 23" wheels - I believe they are split rims - it has 32 x 4.5 tires on the rears.

Steve,

That is exactly what we're looking for; 23" split RIMs for 32 x 4.5 tires. I think 33 x 5 tires are supposed to fit as well but I'm a little leery on that until I get some more info.

Thank you for taking the time to look. Please let me know what you find. You can PM me or email millerkeesATcenturylink.net

Terry
