Electric Wheel Company's 1958 catalog doesn't have your wheel. What puzzles me is the fact that your RS-490 follows none of their numbering conventions. All the car and truck wheel manufacturers used numbering sequences that allow me to know roughly what era a wheel fits into. EWC's catalog does show part numbers having a letter or letters followed by numbers, but nothing with an RS. It could be that your wheel is much earlier or later than my catalog which could be the reason. Their 1958 catalog shows EWC to be a division of Firestone. Stu

Thanks. I checked again, and it is RS-490. It is just a hunch, based on stuff that I have seen on the internet, but I was thinking it is from the 30s.
