1922 Single Six 133 Touring WHEEL/ RIM HELP

Hello all,

I have a question about my wood rims/ wheel help. The wooden rims that came with the car are not the right ones. They measure to be 20" rims. The original ones would have been 24" in diameter to fit the 33x4-1/2 Firestone tires. My rims are also very skinny in width. They measure to be 2.875" rear and 2.55" for the fronts (CAD drawing are attached below that we made of the rims). Yes both the fronts and backs are different in width but same in diameter.

Now the Packard service parts list for a 133 is:
"P/N 120522 Wheel front assembly 32x4 (firestone) (driving plate bolt 6 3/16" from valve stem hole)
or
P/N 121655 Wheel front assembly 32x4 (firestone) (driving plate directly over valve stem hole).

I just got off the phone with Coker Tire and they informed me that they no longer make wooden rims.

Does anyone know of a company that will make me new wooden rims so I can fit the 33 4-1/2 Firestone tires?

I have attached some pictures below.

If you need more information just let me know.

Thanks,

John

You might try Restoration Supply Company 800-306-7008. They are in Escondido, California...however, I have seen fresh wooden wheels in their shop that were being made for a customer...Ernie in Arizona

I remember seeing in one of the "How Its Made" programs one with a segment on making wood spoke wheels. Don't recall the name of the company, but i did find http://www.calimerswheelshop.com/ . Coker also has a shop in Tennessee ( https://www.hemmings.com/hmw/how-its-made-wooden-wheels.html 1-877-358-3450.) that makes them.

Good Luck and keep us up to date with what you find out.
