Can You Identify These Wheels?

Spoked-wheel Outer

From David S. – I’m an avid (daily) reader of your e-mails and hope to make a FIND/BUY in the near future.  Thanks for doing such a great job.  It’s a kick looking at our auto history through your posts. I inherited a pair of spoked wheels from my father, but have no idea what they go to. Can you give me a hint as how I can find out? They have 24 (x2) spokes on each side, 6-bolt pattern with 2.75″ spacing, 16.5″ diameter, and 4.8″ wide. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Looks like the wheel used on 1934-35 Chevrolet Master sedan. Also some 1/2-ton trucks.

    Looks like 1934 or 35 Chevrolet to me. I could be wrong, though, since I know Fords better. Note that the Standards and Masters had different lug patterns, so Googling ‘1935 Chevrolet rim’ turns up a bunch of 5 lug rims too. Confusing to track down.

    Way before my time, but I bet there is someone out here that can’t live without them. They look to be in great condition.

    These are wheels off of a 1935 Chevrolet Knee Action Soft Top Sedan. I should know because this was my first automobile!! Sure wish that I had it now!! I am 70 and got this car while I was in high school ion 1961!!

    Looks like two different wheels.

      Front and back of the same wheel.

    Those measurements are unheard of. You do know that wheel width measurement is inside width, that is: between flanges. And wheel diameter is not outside diameter but the diameter where the tire bead seats, next to the flange. I would guess your wheel really is 15 x 4 and therefore not a size from the 30s or early 40s

    I was going to say a 1935 Chevy,next were the artillery wheels. I have some of those,same lug pattern

    I have another of these, the six lugs tell me GMC/Chebby p/u and I recall reading about the early p/u’s having 15″ wheels. Where are they?

      The wheels are in Springfield, OH. My apologises for the dorked measurements. I really appreciate the help worth this. You guys rock.
