Default Wheels

Can you use '26-'27 Model T sedan wheels(21") on an older Model T? (1925 and down) that had 30" X 3 1/2"?..

Do the hubs fit?? clearance issues?

I have a guy interested in a set I have but needs to know if it'll work? Thanks.

Basically both are 30 inches in outside diameter. You might want to change to 5:1 steering because of the larger tire foot print.

The brake drums are larger in diameter on the 26-27 and will have to be changed to the earlier size drum.
