1926 1927 1928 Buick Standard 21" wheels in unrestored condition. 4 fronts and 2 rears available.   $50 each.

Also 2 Standard demountable rims 21" x 3 3/4" wide. One of these is straight but rusty, the other is not rusty and not so straight. $50 for the pair.

I have 4 more decent demountable rims for standard, but at the moment they are holding up my car which is a Master, so if you have 1926 thru 1928 Master rear wheels and/ or 21" x 4 1/2" Master demountable rims I would trade

As a test of spoke tightness, I thumped on each spoke with a mallet while holding fingers over the protruding end at the rim, and at least 1 or 2 spokes do have some amount of movement when thumped.  All of the spokes are weathered; front spokes clean up to bare wood with sanding, rear spokes the wood degradation goes deeper. 

Banged up hupcaps are included.  I will look and see if there are any better ones that fit Standard.

ok, thanks for the info.  I will take one each of the best front and rear you have.  If you can determine shipping to Mike Bernal at 16860 Oak Glen Ave Morgan Hill Ca. 95037 I can send you a check for that amount or is there some other way you would prefer payment?  You can call me at 408 623 8017 if you prefer.  Thanks  Mike BCA# 49743

Those are Standard rims which are 3-3/4" wide, and you have a Master which requires 4-1/2" wide rims.  These will fit over a Master rim but will always be too loose and unsafe to drive on.  They work ok for just holding up the car stationary in the garage, which is what I have been using them for because I am still looking for Master rims.   Very few parts will interchange between Standard and Master models.

Kevin, you being from Oregon, did you know Jim Kanne, (pronounced Connie), a very fine old wheelwright South of Portland ? You might remember him set up at good ol'  "always in April". Chances are pretty good he would have had what you guys need. I have never seen so many wheels and rims as he had at his place. I have not been getting out and about for a few years, and it has been that long since I have seen Jim. He was getting on, and then I heard he was not doing too well. Please inquire among your network. Jim was well-known, and it is hard to imagine such a precious inventory as he has/had being treated irresponsibly.    -    Carl
