Since this will be an entirely new series of cars designed around the new spoke wheel I am starting another toy car topic.
These wheels are scaled down from the 30" Model T wheels to 2.4" which mean the cars and trucks must be scaled up to fit the wheels.
The new wheel base will be 8.0", 1.25" longer than those designed for 2" wheels making the cars between 1.25 and 1.5" longer too.
Using a 1/8" end mill to cut the axle holes it was necessary to make the wheel slightly larger in order to make them look as realistic as possible even though it was necessary to reduce the number of spokes from 12 to 10. I started with an 8-spoke wheel at 2" diameter but I didn't like the look.

The real deal, I took the photo in Moses Lake WA
The lower left wheel is finished with Tung oil
It was necessary to make a 4-wheel version, the 8-wheel was too big to post.
