Re: '40 Wider Wheels?

I sent a PM to the Cooperman with the sequence... No suspense, just the wheel picture that I had alluded to earlier in the thread. Those Ford/Merc/Zephyr 16" wheels are those factory wider than the...

Re: '40 Wider Wheels?

I should drag a few of the Merc/Zephyr wheels out for a family portrait. I go for the bragging opportunity. Some are powder painted and may resist posing with the riff-raff. I see that the red primer...

Re: '40 Wider Wheels?

On the starting the thread I had not connected the dots on wheel width. I continued to read the Ford sources, including the Service Bulletins to 1947. There are extensive lists with related tire...

Re: '40 Wider Wheels?

Here I am digging back 20 pages of this site to comment on Tinker's comment on running 700-16s on his 4" wide wheels. Looking at tire specifications in the Service Bulletins and backing up from...

Re: '40 Wider Wheels?

Re: '40 Wider Wheels?

I started with a Kube kind of question about 650s on a 4.5" wheel with a chance that Ford produced it as early as '40 for use by station wagons and commercials. I lost focus on the rear wheel knowing...

Re: '40 Wider Wheels?

The part about any innies as late as '66 put a wrinkle in my brow. This place is looking like a wheel factory and lucky if I can recall the source. Most wheels in "stock" are used as rollers which is...

Re: '40 Wider Wheels?

Thanks Kube, guess I'll have to dig into the Service Bulletins to get more of the picture. Would have been cool on my coupe, did I say cool? It's almost a set with these on the front for 650-16s...

I have 4.5" wheels from my '40 station wagon. Some seek '40 wheels and expect to find the squared profile rims. My 4.5"s are slopers and innies around the lugs.Could they still be '40? Original...
