Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Switch to demountables

Can someone tell me more about these 3 wheels? I now have non-demountables on our '21 Touring with 30x3 tires on the front and 30x3 1/2 tires on the rear. If I had the matching front to complete this set and the rims, would my tires fit? Are these a common style? Do the rears in this picture match? Do the brake drums look like improved car (26-27) drums? Would my early drums bolt to these? How hard would it be to find the fourth and to find the rims? Thanks

You would have to change drums to use on your car they are the large drum and yes you could used your drums. Look like 21" in poor shape. If they are 21"s, no your tires would not fit they would use 21X4.40/4.50 tires and if 30" you would need 4 plus spare 30X3.5 tires and tubes.

Your rear tires would fit 30 x 3 demountable rims, but these look like 21" wheels, which take balloon tires. These rears are 26-27, but the earlier drums will fit. I consider wheels an easy search at auctions and swap meets, but they may need new wood.

When in doubt consult the encyclopedia.

You need about $500.00 worth of spokes, the hubcap threads need chasing, the drums are wrong and the tapers and keyways on the rear pair could very likely be shot....ask me how I know. lol A nice clean set can be found for $450.00 or so. Put out the word, someone will contact you, I'm sure.
