Default aluminum slots

looking for some time to find 15"x6" aluminum slot for my 28 model a. they only sell 7" with 4" back space in the repo market. I would like to stay away from the repo stuff. does anyone know if they even made that size. I have a 8" from a 65 mustang rear end in a 28 tudor sedan. hoping not to have to tub the fender wheels.Has any one delt with this. I would like to keep the tires in the fender space. I like the aluminum slots any other good vinage wheel ideas. thanks for the help terry

Terry,

There is a local shop that has the new US mags in a 15x5, 15x7 15x8 & 15x9.
I assume that you are looking for a 5 on 4.5" bolt pattern.
I asked the about the 5" for you this morning and they have a 3" back space.
If you are interested shoot me a P.M. and I'll send you the number.
I've seen them at the local trade shows and they are very nice looking wheels.
Hope this helps you.

not sure if they ever made 15 X 6 slots , my guess is someone did...so you have to hit the swap meets and that auction site

why not use a maverick rear end and 15 X 7 ? the maverick is a bit narrower than the mustang and everything should fut up nice

King Karl, can I get that number from you, please. I am looking for a set of slots for the front of my 70 Road Runner.

Thanx.

Forgive my ignorance, but are these "slots"? My father passed and left a shitload car parts that I don't know much about. I grabbed these thinking aluminum scrap. But I seen a thread here I think about this style?
