Ford Model A wheel conversion

I have a 1931 Ford Model A that I want to update the wheels from the spoke ones. Is there a steel or aftermarket wheel that will bolt right on the Model A hub?

To the best of my knowledge the model A has a 5 on 5 1/2" lug pattern.This means most Ford pickup trucks and Jeeps and some Dodge pickups will fit.I mean Jeep Jeeps not Cherokees and such.

speedydeedy is correct. Model A's used a 5 bolt wheel with a 5 1/2 inch bolt pattern. As well as the Jeep wheels all Ford passenger car wheels from 28-48 will fit, as well as 49-86 full size Ford pickup and vans, along with the 39-51 Mercury and 54-66 Special HD Chrysler Imperial wheels. Most aftermarket wheel companies will have wheels in that bolt pattern as well.

Wide 5 wheels of 36 to 39 will not work. The bolt circle is somewhere around 11".
