Model A wire Wheels on Model T wood hubs

Model A rear hubs machined and ready to be welded to Model T rear wood wheel hubs.
The front Model A hubs fit right onto Model T spindles. Only a 1/2" spacer is needed in the front.

The reason I am using Model A wire wheels is availability and cheaper costs.
