I know how to help you with writing and publishing and it won't cost you anything. My brother Joe is a book writer, has a PH.d, is a SUPER GREAT guy, lives in Palo Alto, CA and will help us with getting a book published.
Can you answer these questions ?
What is the weight of each of 5 -1953 PWD wheels?
What is the weight of each of 5-CMI wheels?
What is the weight of each of 5-wheels after the CMI wheels?
What is the weight of each of 5-1999 wheels?
What is the weight of each of 5- 2009 wheels?
I can answer them all but one. Wouldn't it be sad if that were to be lost to history. I think at this time in History we can find the answer to any question. You've got a BIG HEAD START on most folks. I think you would get a lot of help. Pictures of cars from 1953 to 1985 would be Priceless.

I keep getting "undeliverable" when I go through the info on Derbytalk.
Here's my email address: scorpiofortynine@roadrunner.com
Send me an email and say "Hi". That should do it. I'll get back to you.
Cheers
Bill

Speedster,

For the weight on the wheels used in 1953
Your guess is as good as mine!

Can you guess the weights on the wheels used
In the years from 1954-55?

But if I were to take a guess on the plastic wheels
Used from 56 and on.
I would have to say that the wheels
might be somewere between 3 to 4 grams each.

Same for all the years after 56.

Know why you couldn't email me!
For got to change my email address.
I'v up dated it.
But now I can't log in to DT.

Any of the 5 wheel total's for all the wheels should be around 18 to 21 grams give or take few grams.
On a scale for how many are in the 3 gram range
or in the 4 gram range.

And that's for all the wheels your asking me about after the 1953 -55 wheels.

Even the 1960 wider wheels with the hubs were in the 3-4 gram range.
(The ones that look like the ones from 56.)
