Sold my TF to a gentleman in Holland and regretted it as soon as the car left my house. After a year or so of remorse I found another so I am back in the fold. Car arrives from Kentucky tomorrow and very much looking forward to it.
Quick question, has anyone converted steel wheels to wire wheels?
Cheers and glad to be back in the fold again.

That's why he wants to change the wheels and hubs!
Fairly straightforward job - and all the parts are available from the usual sources.
Great looking car!

Nice Car! I so rarely see TF models with steel wheels. I rather like they way they look. They suit the car well.

That said you can find the hubs and wheels and knockoffs but be prepared to drop some serious coin.

Good luck!

Enjoy!!

Me too, maybe a box with spare bulbs?
I also hesitated a lot but I leave it in plate wheels, it has a lot more charm ...

Great looking car! I like the steel wheel look also and with all the hassles I've had with my wires over the years, I would definitely stay with the whats on the car right now.

Wheel Chock? ( Rubber covered 2x4)

( 2x4 = Construction Lumber - 2 inches by 4 inches.....but actually measures 1 1/2 inches x 3 1/2 inches)

Wire wheels = British sports car.
Dog dish hub caps = Dodge truck.

Go for the wires.

The package on the front seat was all the receipts for the restoration not a 2X4

Yes a nice car got it state tested and registered in Texas today so hoping the rain stops
