I LOVE this thread! Great examples everyone!
Here's my first car - circa 1969:
My second car - 'round 1980 (8" in front & 10" in back!):
The one I roll in now:
My best friends Dad has a Falcon Ranchero that he has owned for about 30+ years. He has wheels that look very similar to these. He once told me that they were chromed and reversed Toyota wheels. They are 4 lug too. He said it was pretty popular back in the day to do.
Friend of mines green sedan...and others that I dont know where I got the pic from...
couple more and Bob Bleeds dads red truck back in the day....
I just had too....
No car in the world looks bad with chrome reverse wheels.
I'll play. Chrome Ford wheels (not reversed though), I don't have an updated picture, but it now has chrome bullet centers and lugnuts.
These are way sweet man. I really like this setup.
Love this post. No matter what you put them on be it Rod, Custom, or truck they instantly give it attitude.
IMO they look great on anything except customs, especially if it has skirts. I've had them on five cars over the years. Never get tired of them. Plain, painted centers, spiders, small caps (like '60 Fords), baby moons, knock offs...they all look good.
My last Galaxie...
My project "A" sport coupe...
This thread is full of win. I want some Chromies for my Buick.
Awesome thread...Keep it movin!
Pretty sure I need to give the steelies on my '60 the strip & dip here really soon!
Great picture thread!
mine, 15" mercs i drove 10 hours each way for 5 of these. origenal 60's chrome.....ohh the shame
this car just screams hot rod. is thet a pontiac engine
Looks like it
Chrome Reverse ... the only way to go!
Thats my buddy Drew's Hot Rod "Tugga" it was started in Oxnard at the same place Live Wire was built.. its now in Chicago were he moved back to.. Drew is a brother to me and pretty much helped me finish LW..it was cool to see it in this post.. I haven't see it since he left..
'car has some serious attitude, early 60's drag
The perfect wheels for Impala's, El Camino's etc! Had them on this 60.
Here's mine. First with blackwall then my personal fav W/W/W
I had a set of Wheel Vintiques OEM chrome steelies on the 66.
Not reversed...just your basic chrome smoothie.
I'll throw one in here. Chrome OEM's on my '57.
Ya beat me to it, but here is a sampling from '62 How to Hop-up...
My 47 Chrysler
