#9 Wheels?

True.

The front steel wheels on my Avanti came from one of the Bonneville cars. They even had the original Bonneville Allstate slick tread tires on them when I got them. The seller, however, wanted the tires back so I only have the wheels.

Sorry, I misunderstood the question. I've seen the pictures of #9 with Halibrands as well as a picture of Paula Murphy on the Salt Flats with #9 after going 161 mph to break the land speed record for a female driver. In the picture, #9 has four stock wheels and hubcaps. Obviously, there were two sets of wheels and tires.

Perhaps there's someone somewhere who knows the story.

You're 'Right On The Money' psdenno! The Valvoline Oil ad showing #9 with Halibrands is exactly what I had in mind.
