Help identify wire wheels
 

I have a set of old ford wire wheels I would like to date. they are 16" and have 32 spoke. I looked for a part number possibly stamped and see nothing. im thinking after looking on the net they might be 1933-34? any help much appreciated. thank you

A question about these spoked wheels... Are they worth anything? I just acquired my first early V8 ford, a 1934 pickup. Along with it came 13 extra wheels. I've got a ton of work to do on the truck and lots of stuff to get so it would be nice if the wheels were worth a lot, but I doubt it.

Want some more? Sorry to disappoint, but while the 16" and 17" versions aren't worthless there are a lot of them around and it's the old supply and demand phenomenon. If they were of the bent spoke version, that would be a different ball game. The 18" straight spoke variety are also more in demand and fewer were made originally.

I recently sold a set of 5 seventeen inch '34 Ford wire wheels for $200.00. They moved pretty fast....

If the rims are straight there is certainly a market for them, check around for what they have sold for.

Today at the ford swap meet in Sydney AUS, 5 16 inch wheels sold for $650 AUD in resonable condition.

The 16" Ford wires are always in demand. They are popular with the trad hot rod people. Straight welded spokes = Ford.
Bent spokes = Kelsey Hayes and are worth more.

Mart.

Are the '35 European 17" wheels the same width as 33-34 US 17"?
