Can anyone tell me if Chalmers ever had wire spoke wheels? I have a wire rim with tire and hub cap, and as near as I can tell from the cap logo, it appears to be the same symbol as their company logo. It is a 19 " rim, with a 4.75 X 19 Allstate tire. Any help appreciated! Chuck

Most Chalmers had steel disk type rims, but I am sure that there were wire wheels available. Do you have a photo of the logo on the cap?

keiser 31, thanks for your reply! I see you on the DBC forum a lot. I'll post the picture soon as I can get a picture of it. I'm sure there were many manufactures out there, and I may be off in left field as to this being Chalmers.

Does the logo look like the letters "M" & "c" inside a large "C" or does it have an olde English "C"?

I'll try to load the pictures into this page, but never having done it before, it may not work. If not, I know I can send them to your e mail address, and then you may be able to.

Well , no luck! I can be reached at jaehaws@msn.com, and then with your address, I can send them. Chuck

Tried that email address to no avail. If you can send photos to me, I am at keiser31@charter.net

1917 Speedster2.jpg Hi,
Attached is a photo of the 1917 Chalmers Speedster 24" Houk wire wheel, showing the Chalmers hubcap.
Chalmers introduced the disc wheel in 1921, and continued with Budd and Kelsey wheels through 1923, their last year of production.

We figured out that the wheel is for a 1931 Chrysler CM6. Mystery solved.
