    Love the hardtop. Reminds me of my brothers 57 hardtop he had back in 1968, Harbor Blue with chrome reverse rims. $125 in 60 is like a grand today.

    A pickup we just finished at work.. not true reverse but still looks cool! Spiders and trim rings give it a bit more depth!

    Yup, one of my pet peeves.. I can even go along with guys calling a chrome O.E.M. Wheel a "chrome reverse" but not smoothies...

    I don't know who decided on that definition, but I think it's BS. Chrome is chrome, reversed is reversed, and a smoothie can be both. I don't like smoothies either, but the words "chrome" and "reversed" are generic.

    I think that Stockton Wheel is closed the owner died (self inflicked). I have 4 - 8"x 16" chrome rims with Goodyear Eagle P225/60 R16 tires less than 500 miles on them, they had 51 hub caps on them. $300. for rims and tires..PM me if interested
     
  13. ^^^ Stockton is back in business, they were barely even closed during that.

    I refer to mine as chrome steelies so that nit pickers don't roll their eyes at me. :D ;)

    I have two like that- I think they're 60's accessory wheels, the center has vents and lug pressings like Ford, but there's a subtle ridge around the edge of the lug depression. I'll use 'em on something...

    Yeah, I have a full set of what I think are the same thing. Mine were a Craigslist score. They will go back on my F1 later this year.

  24. Smoothies are not chrome reverse..
     
  25. Don't have time to read all the posts. I'm at work.
    Who sells a GOOD, high quality chrome reverse wheel now?
    Hell every auto store had them 30 years ago. Now I can't find them.
    Looking for 15"

    Not authintic "reversed" but summit offers Wheel Vintiques chrome steelies in many different sizes, depths and back spacing for about $120 each. I got a pair of 14x7 with 3" b/s and they look nice!!

    These are from Summit. I have a set on my 49 Olds and a set for my 32 5W coupe.
    Reasonably priced and look great. Front on Olds is 15 x 5.
