More questions on Crosley wheels.   Do the FORs use the same wheel as the other Crosley cars?  Is there a longer lug nut for the rear dual wheels?

The outer wheel on a FOR is unique to the FOR. It is a much heavier, cast iron with a large offset.

The outer "dual" wheel, is used only on the FOR. The inner wheel is standard Crosley. Between the wheels is a special wheel adapter, with male, lug bolt threads on one end and female, lug bolt threads on the other (outer) end. The outer wheel is retained by standard Crosley lug bolts.

The front  and inside rear wheels on the FOR are the same as the Crosley CC, CD, and VC.  The outer rear dual wheel is obviously different.  The inner rear lug bolts are unique on the dual setup are different in that they have the male threads to mount the inner wheel to the hub and are also female threaded to accept the lug bolts from the outer dual wheel.  There is also a center hub spacer for the outer dual wheel.  The outer dual wheel uses the standard lug bolts as the rest of the Crosleys.

Jeff, the spacer is present in the picture of the red wheel attached in this email thread.  Are you the one selling your FOR on ebay?
