    I have recently come across this wheel,together with a Spitfire wheel,on a farm near to me. I was wondering if maybe all you buffs out there may have a good idea what it may have come off?Thanks in advance,hope I can get the pic on.Huffy

    Well thanks very much flyboy,I had been doing a lot of looking here and there and have seen a pic of a P51 with what I took to be a similar style wheel.
    Apologies to everyone for not thanking you for allowing me the place to post such a question,I like the site a lot.Also sorry for putting such a biggggg picture on,anyone not on broadband would have to wait an age to download it :oops:
    Going back to the wheel,was it likely that the same type were fitted to several different fighter types(American)??
    The tyre is indeed a C27 Firestone Sky Champion ,made in Canada.
