Default Re: Ideal 16" wheel

I would probably run 600-16 all around (if not stockers) but if you are into big and little tires I think this post on HAMB came out very well, although I would have used a 16 for the spare. Go to https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/...1111340/page-9 and look for post 249. Be sure to read the whole thread, he did more than just change the wheels. I took the liberty of copying his picture. Any chance you have a local machine shop that could widen 16 inch Ford wheels or Kelseys? A bit of trivia, you can put 600-16 tires into a stock fender well on a '30-'31 (and I assume a '29) by letting some of the air out. Remember to carry a tire pump. Sure like to see a picture of your car.

By the way, what kind of new reproduction wheel are you considering? Did you check them out in the archives (here and on HAMB)?
