Wheel Pinstriping - 1941 Packard 110 Club Coupe

My '41 110 had 3 reddish/orange pinstriping rings around each wheel, which were lost when I restored and powdercoated them. I retained the spare wheel the way it was when I purchased the car.

I am now considering getting the 4 wheels pinstriped to match the spare but wanted to ask if the pinstriping is likely to be original? If so, I will put the other 4 wheels to that condition but if the consensus is that it was likely done outside the factory by some later owner, I will leave them be.

Anyone know whether these cars came with pinstiped wheels -- either standard or as an option?

Pics of my spare attached.

Thanks!

I have a '37 115C older restoration, and a '40 110 that's unrestored and is a mess.

Both have wheel pinstriping. The green '37 has gold pinstripes, a double row. The tan/grey/rust/primer '40 has tan matching wheels with what looks like a dark brown or black double stripe.

All the striping has a width of maybe 3/32" with a 1/8" space between stripes.

I restored my wheels, 1939 Packard Six, but before, they did have original pinstriping, including the spare. It was a very time consuming project but the end results were very good.

Thank you all! This makes me more confident the pinstriping is as it came from the factory and not a later addition, so I will look to have it put back to that condition.

41 models did not have pin striping. If you look at the original sales brochure you will see. 39 had 3 pin stripes but after that they did not have any.
