Same here. I always have originals but I wanted a custom rim so I bought the late 30s Ford spoke wheels for one of them (still haven't installed them). They are for 6.00-16 tires and I was going to use original Allstate knobby tires on them, and get that old tractor look from the 1930s, when they were going from steel wheels to rubber on the big tractors. I know other rims will fit, but the ones I listed will bolt right on and take a 6.00-16 tire, otherwise you can do your own research if you wish to run low profile tires or wide tires, or whatever. Most will require modifications for the center hole, but Ford seems to use the same 4" hole. Do not get a for wire spoke wheel prior to 1932 (the lugs on the outside of the protrusion). You need the later model spoke wheels that hide the lugs inside or else you won't clear the clicker hubs clamps. Not saying they wont fit, because they will, but they will lock in the hubs, literally (interlock the clamp). Just some advice.
That's Great detail Info Casey, thanks for sharing, I get guys ask me about this all the time. I knew old Ford & I heard old Dodge Rims will Fit the DB's as well but I just never knew exactly what ones & I have never had the need to try them, allways had the originals.

Hi Woodman. Since you are looking for other rims, I am looking for an original rim for my David Bradley. I have one good one, but the second one is rusted beyond repair. Are your rims still good and would you be willing to sell one?
Don't hold your breath on this one. The post is from 2011 and Woodman hasn't been on since July 2011.
