Those red-lines are so damn cool.
Black smoothies on my 49
Here is mine
Here's me with one of mine. Black wheels and spiders - 1964.
Uh ... dunno about your wheels, but mine are 16-inch International truck wheels. Are yours 15s or 16s? (Nice shoebox, btw.)
Thanks for the compliment. I'm so far into this thing that all I see is how f***-ed up it is, but yeah, someday I'd like to have a nice car!
As for the engine, it's a 350.
Got Gloss Black Gennie steelies from Wheelsmith and they look like they're hand rubbed!
I just kind of like the look of the black wheels with whitewalls. Here are a couple of mine.
I love that truck!
Now that's a cool picture!
Now thats what I am talking about Great thumb.kudos
You would probably liked the white rolls and pleats with black piping, too. The paint was '56 Chevy (Sierra Gold, I think) - kind of a copper color. Typical So-Cal style of the time.
I'm betting that if you could take an actual count you would fine that black wheels would outnumber red ones.
Black on Black is Back!
My cars not back on the ground yet but here's the back wheel...
Yeah mine are 16's too.I don't have that car anymore but I sure kept those wheels and Firestones (bought some $100 tire shop specials to roll her out of here) Looks like you've got a nice Shoebox yourself Man, gotta get her finished up. That's gonna be a nice car!
THAT is a Hot Rod!
Original wheels for '49 1/2 T in excellent shape, original striping, I cleaned them up and hit them with flat rustoleum out of a can. Will gently touch up the stripes where needed, not too much though.
Black steel with skinny whites
Thanks, man. I'd have it running this summer, except I lost my job--so right now I'm just focusing on getting the front clip back on. It'll probably get running next summer. That's my hope, anyway.
"Cause black wheels are just "right".
I has originally painted the wheels on my T Coupe red but after 1 summer of driving I decided to change to black and the difference is incredible. Its looks much better plus it just looks older as well.
Here is a pic I've posted many times. Maybe if I'd quit working on all my other stuff, and spent an aftertoon on the Wagon, I could drive it around and take some new ones!
here you go.
Al......^ I sure like the look ^...........Bob

My '47 is Barcelona Blue (factory color) with black wheels, blackwall tires.
