Default Re: my new 31 truck!!

One minor bit of trivia that is frequently missed. If you run later solid wheels (like you have on the back) you need to use an adapter ring to make up for the raised ring on the stock mechanical brake drums in the area around the inside of the lug nut pattern. Original wire wheels were stepped slightly to avoid this problem. The result without a ring is dangerous (a wheel can fall off) and you should check that the ring is there. I like the truck. I have a '31 RDPU truck

Thanks for the kind words and advise!

Charlie, the truck was basically sitting for 20 years on these wheels with no movement. I have a full set of 19" wires that I ordered tires for! They will go on soon hopefully.
