    I usually run wires on my old Plymouth, but I do have a set of 15x5 and 15x7 chrome reverse with Ford centers made by wheelkid from the HAMB (rallyamerica.com).

    I bought the rear ones in 1968. Sold them in 1980. Bought them back in 2012 with the 5w attached. 20160521_141518.jpg

    This car is why I am currently on the hunt for some chrome reverse wheels for my 40 (and would appreciate any leads to find a set). Thanks.

    Hey John, I got mine from Summit. They are Wheel Vintiques. I waited 3 months for the 14x5 fronts but they had the 15x7s to my door inside a week

    Sent from my SM-G900V using The H.A.M.B. mobile app

    Just was wondering if they offer these in a 6 lug Chevy wheel pattern? Have a 64 C10 and rim selection is limited at best. Wanted to run Cragar's but no 6 lugs that I know of.

    Always been a chrome reversed wheel man, had 'em on the front of my very first car - '40 Ford deluxe coupe, black steelies with Inglewood slicks in back.
    Put 'em on my Model A to give it that drag rod look for a change (with real vintage M&H piecrusts, of course)

    My old 55 Olds many-door from 1966. I was poor and only bought 2 wheels. Put 'em on the same side for the photo. I used them on the front and had a pair of cheater slicks on black steel rims for the rear.
    The chrome reverse had OEM centers with the 3 slots for center hubcap clips. I later bought another pair and bolted them on my 57 Pontiac with original 57 Pontiac center caps. Loved my chrome reversed wheels back in the 60s-70s. scan0002.jpg 57Ponchoonstreet.jpg

  23. Ed Roth's Mysterion had chromed reversed wheels too. This is not the original Mysterion, it is my c lone but I had to revere the wheels like Ed did. The guy who made them only made the shallow front version so Ed had to cut the rivets and reverse the wheels to get the deep mag look. George Barris had to do this also when he used these wheels on his Batmobile TV show car. P1010435.JPG
