Wheel adapters

Post by Dennis_Brown » Wed Apr 24, 2019 6:15 pm

I asked back onApril 9 about adapters to mount A wheels to T hubs. I have seen pictures for using wood hubs but what do adapters look like using 5 stud T hubs?
Previous answer said the wheel was supported in 3 places but the wood to wire adapters looked like there was no support at the outer part of the wheel and only appeared to be supported by the studs and lug nuts.
I would appreciate hearing what others have done and pictures. I can use either Wood or wire hubs. Thanks

And that's why it's a bad idea.

Other than that, (and I realize this is only my personal opinion), Model A wheels look terrible an a Model T. But agian, that's just my 2 cents.
