Hello all,

I've searched the forums for this, but the only places I could find referenced are either out of business now or said they don't have the tools to do it (ie, https://www.dependablewheelrepair.com/)

Anyway- I would like to have all of my wire wheels trued up but can't find anyone in the PNW to do it (and I don't want to attempt it, I tried truing a bicycle wheel once and it was a nightmare enough!). I know I can send them off in the mail somewhere... is that my only option?

Thanks!
-Joe

Try asking around good old motorcycle shops , they might know of someone who does wire wheels .

Another idea might be a model T club .

Lizzard probably has the best idea. I know we used to have one here in WW but they closed a few years back. Spokane used to have one but no idea the name. It probably was a motorcycle shop actually but also did car wheels. If I can remember long enough I will check with some locals tomorrow that have been Model T restorers for years.
