The original FORD/KELSEY-HAYES 28 x 9 Hat Rims use the 11.2 x 28 tires. Tires were measured differently back then. The width was from the inside, later changed to the outside so the 9 x 28 is the same as the 10 x 28. Aftermarket 6-Loop rear rims are sold at Just8Ns, Dennis Carpenter, and Miller Tire (click on LINK) for a few good vendors. Calcium Chloride was the substance used for ballast and if/when the tubes leaked, ate away ferrous material like a cancer. If you want to preserve hat rims or aftermarket rims, get rid of the Ca Chl and use Beet Juice if you need extra weight. If you seek OEM Hat Rims, I have a nicely restored set for sale as pictured -my email is open.
