I have a ' 26 AC that was delivered new with solid tires. It was converted to pneumatics in the'40s [ single fronts , dual rears ]

I have seen them with single rears before , but not sure of the correct hub adaptor and rim combination. The dual pneumatic rears stick out way beyond the fender line , and look horrible. Any info is greatly appreciated.

There was after market pnumatic conversions made by Good Year, Fisk, Dunlop, BUDD and others that involved the cutting and welding to the hub. Some use standard split rims with an attachment ring and some have the split rim with a flange to bolt directly to the factory cast spokes. There was also Factory and Dealer set ups with Spiders or BUDD style Disks with adapters. Paul

I have an AC with the same setup. The rear wheels stick a whole tire width beyond the body. Matt Pfahl says this is correct and the only way to narrow it is to return it to the original solid rubber tires.
