Found this great informative site while trying to research a steering wheel I have recently purchased .

 I normally collect wooden British steering wheels but I found the 16" Rosewood while looking for my next fix (purchase) .

 From what I can make out it is a 16" simulated plastic Rosewood with aprox 2.5" dish & 2 spoke design  , where I am struggling is that all the other wheels I have found are exactly the same as mine apart from mine has flushed rivets at the back , I just can not find another with the same riveted finish , any help would be greatly appreciated .

Thanks for the reply I have read it but I am sure there is still nothing about the rivets to the rear will try and get some pics up tomorrow as it is near 11.30 PM here in England.

A simulated wood 2 spoke sounds more like the 66 optional wheel. (I have one on my 66 chevelle)

Sorry perhaps I worded it incorrectly should have said 3 spoke in the overlapping design known as the N34 I believe .

Sounds like a N34.  Do post some pictures.
Is there a particular question you need answered about the rivets?
If you don't mind my asking, where do you live in England?  I've worked in Bournemouth and Fareham.

Its a very small world I live in Poole and is attached to Bournemouth how crazy is that , I was born in Bournemouth.

 I am just struggling to find a pic of a N34 with flushed rivets on the back maybe just looking in the wrong place , all the ones I believe I have found do not seem to have any rivets to the back, am I going mad ?

Bets shots I have of my late departed rosewood. No rivets I can discern - looks to be spot welded.

This was an exceptional wheel I purchased in the mid 80's, long before the current reproductions - a known original wheel.

Steve

Thanks Steve but the rivets are on the outer wooden rim like a Grant or Moto Lita wheel.

Sorry - I misunderstood the placement. It wouldn't be a '68 or '9 - molded construction with no rivets. Aftermarkets like Grant wheels had them, as you noted. I had one of those in my 1957 Bel Air in the '70's.

Steve

I would say that someone has added those embellishments (rivets) in a customizing attempt.
