The spoke connection profiles at the outer rim are different on the repro's from the originals.

Berts model A in Denver usually has good original wheels . I bought the wheels that are on my 31 tudor from Berts and they were perfect .

I've never been to a parts swap that didn't have some Model A wheels. Easy to find.
Usually cheap, but you don't know if they run true or not.
