That’s right!! Wire wheels replaced the 1930 model disc wheels and were now standard on 1931 models. Wire wheels were an option on both 1929 and 1930 models and made such a difference in the appearance regardless of the body style. Chevrolet realized this and thus incorporated them with the nice additional touches made to the 31’s,ie, chrome headlight shells, good looking taillights and more attractive body color options. In the writers opinion ’32 models are nicer looking, but the ’31’s run them a very close second!!
