    Marius, the axles are the same. The hubs on the 29 are only slightly different and these can be swapped for the 28 hubs. I can't say whether the 29 hubs would be an issue on the 28 - I doubt it.
    Someone else will offer comment I hope on this.

    and he wrote "I rebuilt the front wheels, power coated stainless hardware, the wood is in great shape on all 4 wheels just haven’t rebuilt the rear wheels, maybe a winter project some day."

    Maruis - those are 1930 wheels, (19 inch) and will definitely not fit your car.  
    If you're stuck in a hole, stop digging.

    What else are you looking for other than 29 wheels. I have a 29 with wheels and a lot of other parts including the visor, tranny, axles ,engine has less than 20 thousand miles original radiator pictures of the car are on the Hudson swap page. Entire car is for sale. Paul coolsen
