1930's-40's Ford Commercial Wheels

Recommended Posts

Those are indistinguishable from the AA wheels manufactured by Ma's Resins.

I do make them and I have cast up various test versions.  The biggest obstacle to getting them to the production stage has been sourcing a set of stainless steel lugs. I was finally able to purchase a set of lugs a couple of weeks back to complete the wheels after months of looking. Once I secure the right diameter wire for the studs I can begin the finally assembly before I cast them. The image below is of the master. This is also the same wheel that will be on the rear. The centre hub is also completed but not shown in the image.

When I was doing All American Models resin kits,  I mastered the 1.5 ton wheels, which BTW were continued by Ford all the way out to 1953.  Those were a feature of my Ford Model AA, Model BB and later V8 Ford truck kits and chassis.

I'm guessing that these would be too small for a 1950 Ford F8?

These are both 20", so they should be what you need for an F-8:

Sorry guys, just noticed this thread. I have the tires ready for the 1/25th version and I'm working on the wheels now.  Hate to give an exact date for market because I'm always over optimistic with that but hopefully they'll be ready soon. I'll definitely post here when I have them available.
