Yes. Just get a wheel with the correct bolt circle and number of lug holes. Look at mid fifties Ford pickup or some Chrysler products rims for 15". '40-'48 Ford or Merc for 16". You can also buy new from Wheel Vintique, Coker Tire and others.

Unless you have wide 5 it is 5 on 51/2 bolt pattern..Ford pickup or later steel wheels fit that bolt pattern..

Good luck on finding a wheel that suits ya....

A search of the Knowledge Base for "wheel bolt pattern" gave these results:

http://www.hotrodders.com/kb/search....&searchid=8223

Scroll down to the 5 X 5 1/2 bolt pattern and you will find all the wheels that fit on a Model A.

As well almost every aftermarket reproduction or custom wheel company makes wheels for the Model A bolt pattern.
