  • NAA front wheel
  • Front rim on my 54 NAA has rusted through. I am going to replace it with a new one, but want to keep it original. I can get a 8N1015C or 8N1015D. The Master Parts list says it should be the C, but the ad for the C says it measures 4 1/2 inches wide and the old rim measures 5 1/2 inches. Anyone know which is the most like the original? The original had a 5.50 X 16 tire and tube on it. Thanks Larry

  • HiYa Larry-
    The 8N-1015-C is the correct rim, listed as 4" x 16", used with 5.50 x 16 tires, NOT for FEL, meaning the 6.0 - 6.5 x 16 tire was for use with a FEL. Rims and tires were measured differently back in the day. They were measured from the inside of the rim. Later, the industry changed that to dimension them from the outside. For example, the 10 x 28 rear rim was on the 9 x 28 rim, tire was listed as a 10 x 28, and then changed to 11.2 x 28. Where did you get your rims? Often you can find OEM rims on fleabay and boneyards. I found a pair of 16" OEM rims at a local boneyard for like $20 each, blasted and painted them, and installed Firestone repop 6.00 x 16 Guide Grip style tires from MILLER TIRE just like the originals were. The OEM 16" rims have a ROUND hole equally spaced in which to bolt the 2-PC front wheel weights to. Aftermarket rims have square holes. Weights have square holes and require square head bolts.
