Re: hub bolts

That is out of the Leaside 1938 aftermarket catalogue.

Ah yes its been years since having to deal with rim bolts and I do recall the turned up head side. The 32 has 6 bolt wire wheels so no split rims, rim spreader, and wood spokes my 30 had in the 60's.

Doesn't a Ford T rim fit our cars but you have to alter them by redrilling a hole or something ?? This came up on Forum sometime ago, when someone had same problem. Macs Ford parts has a T rim

Model T Ford Demountable Rim, 450 X 21, Split Type, Bolt Style Rim Latch, Steel Part # 16-55470-1
Ouch $459.99 each.

You would think someone would have Star rims in their spare parts and could help you.

It was sometime ago on Forum 2009

Hi Dib.....

Those rims that are on Mac's website are for the larger size tires (30 X 3 1/2)used on the earlier T's. (I'm a dealer for Mac's)

The T rims you want are used on the later (1923-1927) T's with demountable Balloon tires. It is an easy project to relocate the valve stem hole.

No matter what you find the shipping costs to Brazil are going to be high. So probably best to find the correct Star Rim.

When you get the tire size on your car, contact me, I may have a rim that will work for you.

Enjoy your car......Frank
