Wire Wheel Support Rings
The MT wire wheel support is designed to help prevent wire wheels from becoming bent, or cracked by supporting the center of the wheel. On the 1928 to 1935 Ford drums there is a raised area which provides support for there wheels. However, when converting your vehicle to hydraulic brakes, the 1940 to 1948 drums do not have the raised area for wire wheel support. This is when you'll need to run the support rings.
