What I really like is the $2.85 for gas!
We just got these today. Now they are mounted, balanced and fitted with old Goodyear Thunder Bolts. 15 x 6 , reverse, 6 lug Chevrolet.
I do like these wheels...it'd just be a lot of work from what I hear....
I have been admiring this car from the internet ever since I got interested in Model A's turned hot rod. And I do believe that your's is the best example of both a hot rod and chrome reverses
Chromed reversed wheels on the front of a '64 Plymouth. Was originally the Melrose Missile VI with a Hemi, slightly altered wheelbase, aluminum nose, and eventually converted to full funnycar with a 2X3 chassis and seriously setback 426 Hemi. I currently own the chassis that was built under this car in late 1966 or early 1967. The chrome reversed front wheels are long gone
i just took these chrome reverse off my kopper krate and put them on my 32 coupedeville. i think they look neat for something different
Any photos of the whole vehicle with the wheels?
That looks great!!
Wow that looks so bad ass.. That car is always bad ass but now it's bad ass with chrome Hahahaha
I've always liked chrome reverse with spyders but figured the Olds needed something a little smoother . . .
Here it is , a little rough now.
Wow!, I love it!
where did you get the wheels and tires?
wow thats a nice lookin olds!!!!!!!! just did smilar wheels on my 58
was gonna put a pic, but just cant seem to get them to upload anymore, and i posted the same pic before
These rims will go on my truck once I drum up the fundage.
Those wheels are from Rally Wheels and the tires came on a nice originall 55 Chev my dad bought. These are some vintage 4 ply tires, but are in great shape. I will have to keep my eyes on them and don't plan any high speed use. They are Goodyears with the little diamonds all the way around, just like the tires that use to come in the AMT models in the sixties and seventies. Wheelkid on here can fix you up with these wheels. Hey 32coupedeville, that five window is just right!
My Dad's 1967 chevelle ss with some chrome reverse wheels in 1967
New shoes on my Edsel. Had the factory stocks done up right....
Another Santa Maria cruise shot....
I have been addicted to them for a very long time,.... Back when I was in High School, K-Mart automotive department had them for $7.50 each !
This set has been stacked up in the back of the barn for a looong time,... I am building this chassis for a pal,... so they are temporarily on loan,....
I also had this set of 14' Chrome Reverse laying around,... so they went on this O/T Item,....
Where do you find actual chrome "reverse" wheels? I can't seem to find them for sale anywhere. I would like 15x7 and 15x8 for my Galaxie.
YES...now thats perfect! ....i'm diggin the shit out of that......It complements the chromed out and polished full race Caddy mill.....now howz about I bring down a can of my secret ingredient and take off the pinstriping and replace with some Fields stuff
I need a 58 Edsel now .....
If you are talking about the old tapered hoop type, rallyamerica has those listed.
Such a bitchin picture...
This is just an old picture, but I was pleasantly surprised to find the pair of chrome reverse wheels in the trunk after I drug it home (as well as all 5 Kelsey-Hayes 15" steelies, since it's a hi-po car). I like this look quite a lot
Looks on topic to me....
These rear tires are killer! Does anyone make them? I know Hurst make a radial front runner, but who make one in a 8.20 size?
Here you go - on my 57 Fairlane
