Default Ford Wheels Question

Did Ford make an 18" spoked wheel? If so, what year and model and whats the availability of them?

Let me know if I should be posting this on the Model A section of the forum.

Thanks
Jim

'32 is the only year Ford had them.They are 3.5" wide.Kelsey also made aftermarket bent spoke 18" and Motor Rim & Wheel made adjustable spoke ones.

Thanks for the reply. Are they hard to find?

32 ones are relatively easy to find, because lots of people like to run the '35 16"ers.

Put an ad in the WANTED section and find some locally since shipping is expensive. They should be easy to find in good condition since most of the cars unfortunately ended up hot rods. They are about the only '32 part that is cheaper than the same part on a Model A. My guess would be about $40 each for good ones that need blasting and powder coating.

I see them quite often on EBAY. Vintage ford suppliers might have them also.The thing is when you are buying them sight unseen make sure you verify they spin true.I have seen many that have lots of runout.
