Thumbs up Wheels & Tires



The most important decision you can make on your hot rod or custom is the stance... and nothing sets off a stance like a proper set of wheels and tires. Some folks are rolling stock whores wit...

Some variety, but all the wheels were made by Ford.

You talking to me? They're '38 or '39 Ford standard, on wide 5 rims. If it's not obvious from the picture, the whole maroon portion is part of the hubcap. Very few people saved these, so they're kinda scarce now. They are not available in repop.

Are those late model Crown Vic wheels on the blue Ford? Did you have the caps made to fit? Either way look nice on there.

I know I am guilty of having too many "shoes" for the cars also.
The Z/28 has a set of Rallys and a set of 17" Centerlines.
The Cutlass has a set of Salt Flats and a set of rallys (skinny 3" wide fronts for the strip)
The Fairlane has a set of steelies and a set of Torque Thrust knock-offs.
My Monte Carlo has just a set of factory Rallys now but also had a set of 15" wires with vogues that looked damn nice. It got too much attention from the wrong people though so off they went.
Sad part is, about every two years I think one of the cars needs a new set of wheels.

Yeah, '91-96 Crown Vic. Thanks, I like them too, and they're worth nothing. The hubcaps are stock Ford of the same vintage.
