"Thanks for six great wheels"
When Don Lyons called, we discussed the process and cost to restore the
six wheels for his 1932 Auburn Speedster.. He decided that chrome
plated spokes be used. He will send the hubs and rims to the
plating shop doing the rest of the plating for the car.
After the wheels arrived, they were inspected and bent rim flanges
straightened. Next, lateral and radial run out dimensions were
documented, spoke lacing patterns photographed, and spoke samples
removed from each wheel.The wheels were disassembled and returned to
New chrome plated spokes were fabricated during the time the hubs and rims were being chrome plated.
Once the chrome plated hubs and rims arrived, the new spokes were
laced, and the assembled wheels trued and spokes tuned to OEM
specifications .The completed job was shipped out immediately to meet
It gave me great satisfaction to help return one of the finest
automobiles ever made to its former glory. This job is a perfect
example of the wire wheel restorations we have done at Wheel Repair
Service of New England during the past fifty years in business.
