Help identify woodspoke Buick wheel

Can you please provide width (thickness) of the rim ?   It should be either 6.73cm or 7.82cm  depending on which series it fits.   

The back side should measure 60.96cm which equates to a 24" rim. 

Wheel sizes were listed by the outside diameter of the tire when it changed to rim diameter in 1926.

The formula to convert tire diameter to rim diameter is to subtract (2 x tire width) from tire diameter.

(If my understanding of this is correct !)  

without knowing rim width, possible identification could be

1923 model 44-45 wheel  32 - (2 x 4) = 24

1923 model 47-50 wheel : 33 - (2 x 4.5) = 24 

1924 model 41-45 wheel : 32 - (2 x 4) = 24

Looks like a front wheel.  40 series rears would only have 6 holes ... i think.

12 holes is correct

 

6 bolts hold the hub on

 

A hidden six facing inward under the hub flange hold the drum to the wheel

 

Large center hole for the very large double row bearing would suggest rear wheel

 

Lack of any maroon paint (‘23) would suggest 1924 where black with gold trim was standard I believe. 
 

At least that’s my guess

You are right again. 🤔
