As Purchased Condition Of The Car

Left Rear Hauk Wire Wheel Rim and Tire

The tires on the car were in poor shape.  An added problem was that the wire wheel spare was in bad condition and not really useable.  From having been run loose at some time in the past the holes in the wire wheel rim had become ovaled and thus the wire wheel rim would move in relation to the wheel hub.  The tires also experienced the slow loss of air over about a week,  Several of the wire wheel rims had spoke replacements made but those replacements were half the diameter of the original spokes.  Clearly being gently with the wheels was going to be required until all the wire wheel rims could be properly attended to.
