Reply To: What do you use for tires?
Virgil & Sue Klein
I do use the original wheels without any problems whatsoever. I have heard that the flexing of the radial could cause problems especially with hubcaps staying on the wheel but that has not been an issue either.
Any wheel that can be used with a tubeless tire should be adequate. You referenced wheels from the 40s and most of those required a tube. Not a good thing with a radial tire.
One other comment: do not get tires that are too wide as they will not fit between the rear brake drum and the body of the car when you try to put them on.
