DESOTO, SOME TRACTORS USED THE SAME BOLTS AS YOUR COUPE FOR YOUR WIRE WHEELS. I HAVEN"T FOUND A SUPPLIER FOR THE LONGER WOOD WHEEL BOLTS. TO HAVE THE WOOD WHEEL BOLTS MACHINED IS ABOUT $15 DOLLARS A PIECE. I DON'T HAVE THE WEB FOR THE WIRE YOU'D HAVE TO SEARCH UNDER TRACTOR LUG BOLTS. HOPE THAT HELPS.

Is there a retainer that goes under the lugs for strength ?

The bolts pictured have two different threads which I doubt would be the case as the drum, regardless of the wheel would have the same thread I would speculate but I could be wrong. There was a guy in VT or NH that made high head bolts years back that no longer makes them and now owns a bicycle shop but continues to sell old inventory on eBay. He didn’t have the size I wanted on eBay but was able to locate him by phone and he had what I needed. It might be an avenue for you to persue but you will need to know the correct thread and diameter. What is shown is coarse thread in the top picture and fine in the bottom.
