This may be old news, or not. Wire wheels were quite common on British sports cars of the 50s and 60s, as you might expect there is a good supply of tools to deal with them. I don't know if the specific tools would work out of the box on our K-H wheels, but this might give some food for thought. The rawhide/copper mallet was a standard part of the tool kit on many of those cars, but I like the idea of the wood "wrench" even better.
