    These are stamped KH on the inside of the wheel and on the back of the mounting hub.

        Curly Not at all
        Many like using them for touring, higher speeds, handling.
        Do they frown upon them in Alaska? I thought you guys were part of the states!

          Regarding Wiz's pictures i guess not all KH wheels have one spoke crossing two? I wonder how nany variations were made?

            We never know how many companies were making wheels, to keep up with the demand! Many think Models As came NEW, with 16s!

          I'm betting Kelsey made the bent spoke wheel like Mitch showed AND the one's DaWizard shows which look like regular Ford 16"ers.

            After doing some more digging Kelsey Hayes manufactured some wheels for Ford without the bent spoke crossover type pattern. That is probably what Wiz has on his car since they are stamped KH. The bent spoke rims are the more difficult ones to find>>

              I have 1 4 1/2 wide bent spoke. Try finding one of those. Looking for 1 more so I can put them on the rear.

                Some do. Many of us have 16’s. Carl’s set up is the best of both worlds in my view. Radials that have the driving quality of modern wheels but the more period looks of the originals. This is the direction I am going when I can.

                Hawaii and Alaska refer to the contiguous United States as “The States”. Alaskans also call them “The lower 48”, or simply “outside”.
                We’re currently in talks with Russia to buy us back from the lower 48 (don’t tell you government). The main hang up in negotiations is vodka. We Hairy chested Alaskans like whiskey, not vodka!
                Another point of contention is the ugly Russian ladies but we’ve about decided with enough make-up and whiskey they won’t be that bad. Besides it’s dark up here half the year so that should help as well.

                  Curly, I loved Alaska twice and would go back in a heartbeat. I never checked out the Russian towns yet, Vodka and women you say

                I always like finding bent spoke KH wheels. Unfortunately I have had to sell all of the ones I have found. Hopefully the next five good ones I find I will be able to keep. Had a 17" KH last year, but the lug holes were toast. A guy at the Lincoln swap meet bought it and was going to put a new center in it. Lots of work, but he was saving the only 17" bent spoke I have ever had and seemed happy to have found one. Rod

                  Cleaning My New Steering Wheel
                  by Cape Codder
                  I thought I would take some time off from cleaning my NEW Steering wheel.

                  The first picture shows how I have mounted to do it. I sit 90 degrees to the shaft while working. Much easier than working on it
                  as you would while sitting in the car. The pipe vise was a gift from my Uncles Estate years ago. Thanks Uncle Jake!

                  Wheel Balancer Floats on Air
                  by Tom Wesenberg
                  I made a wheel balancer for my Model A wheels some years ago, and just added it to the "Homemade Tools" section. I have another wheel balancer that I bought at a swap meet about 10 years ago. All the bubble balancers I've seen in the past work by pivoting on a point. This balancer works by having a concave pocket with an air hole in the center. The top part, which supports the wheel, has...

                  Original Steering Wheel Restoration Articles, by Gary Karr, Pluck
                  by Gary Karr
                  Original Thread

                  OK, restoring the 1928 red steering wheel is actually easier than you think. I started off with a rather shabby wheel with several cracks and a couple of missing pieces. I began by laying out some newspaper and began sanding the entire wheel with 320 grit sandpaper over the paper so I could collect the red dust off of the wheel. Try not to sand off the circular grooves...

                  How to know if wheels (rims) are good?
                  by Curly
                  I am trying to put 5 good 19 inch wheels together for powder coating. How does one determine if the wheels are good? Any tell tale things to look for?

                  i thought I would put them on and spin them to check for straightness, but I don’t know how accurate this might be. I will also check each individual spoke.

                  Thanks in advance....
