Buick wheel rims


Recommended Posts

Hi

Could some learned person tell me what colour the wheel rims should be on my 1930 Buick 40 Bus. Coupe. The car is at present pale blue with pale blue / red wheel spokes ( wood wheels ) I assume black or silver but not sure , I am about to put her on a set of Goodrich white walls.

Many Thanks Tim

The standard wheel rims (metal) would be painted. The wood spokes would also be painted, probably body color. Natural finish was an option (unlikely in a inexpensive business coupe). The tire rims would be cadmium plated. Red is dead wrong I believe.

Thank you very much guys, I have a '26 also and that shows plating under the paint, but could not find any plating under the '30 rims, they are at present silver but have some black paint underneath, I think black should look good, as I am treating the old girl to a set of BFG whitewalls ! Will post a pic when she is re shod Tim
