The original FORD wheel suppler was Kelsey-Hayes, but I think you knew that. I have the same problem when typing. With my bad eyesight and fat fingers I often hit the wrong key and fail to preview my response. The original 3 x 19 FORD/KELSEY-HAYES rims were riveted. Ford soon went to the welded assembly; it may have been when Budd Wheel resumed production. Kelsey-Hayes also made the 28 x 9 hat rims, but I do not know who made the original, early 8 x 32 6-loop style and 32" Hat Rims, probably K-H as well.
