Default 1+ton heavy duty truck wire wheels.

I have found a set of split rim heavy duty Model A truck wire wheels, with hub caps. I have only seen one other set in my sheltered life. Value?, rareness?

Split ring or split rim . Split rim are dangerous ,do not use . Split ring are also dangerous but if done properly are not as bad . Know how to work on either type or take to truck tire place were they have proper tooling and safety cage.

1928's used a wire wheel


In 1931 a Deluxe wire wheel was also available.
