    Don't know anything about the company, or their customer service. That said, I like the looks too.
    Here's a bump for ya,

  3. They kick ass, look better than the new American Torque Thrusts. I wish I had kept the set that I had.

    Had a great experience with them. They custom made these 15 x 15 with the bolt together look. Excellent service and nice quality. 20181123_094517.jpeg

    Good company and a very nice product. Unlike some other vintage wheel guys when you give him money, he will actually ship you wheels not just promise to ship them. Last time I spoke to them, they couldn't get a reliable foundry in the US, so they may be cast overseas, but ask them to be sure if that is important to you.

    Got that right!
    Many years ago I helped my pal in Bakersfield transform his deuce 3W with a wheel change. For the rears we got a pair of big ET's from Scott but wanted the fronts to have the little Halibrand look, problem was, nobody was in production at the time but Randy Clark CLAIMED he had a guy tooling up for a new run of wheels so like you said I had my pal send a FULL PRICE DEPOSIT to Hot Rods and Custom Stuff, yep, kept getting the "they will be in production shortly" BS, long story short the money was EVENTUALLY returned.
    I'm sure this was a great way for Randy Clark to get a zero interest loan for over six months to keep his shop business afloat as I'm betting a lot of people fell for it.

    I got a pair a few years ago at an estate auction. 15X7s probably early 70s vintage. One is drilled for slicks (only four holes), spokes were faded gold-ish tinted, no center caps. Sticker inside of one said Super ET-III if I remember right. A buck, yep $1 for the pair! Sure they're Uni's, but for fifty cents a piece I can make some concessions. :D
    They lay in wait for a future project..

    If your worried about the quality don't be.
    If your worried about the owner don't be.
    If your worried about customer service don't be.................................

    In any of my interactions with Scott the only issue I had was his inability to grasp that a person might have a reason to mix/match two of his wheels with two of another brand.

    That's understandable, he wasn't a Gasser, Rail, Funny Car, Top Fuel, Altered driver or builder!

    Scott lived 3 doors down from me when we were kids. that has nothing to do with the quality of the wheels or customer service, I just like to be a part of the conversation.

    Keep your eyes open at the swap meets : sometimes you get lucky! You don't say where you are located, but the big Turlock is coming up in Jan..... If you're within 500 miles, it's worth the trip!!

  15. I *LOVE* my custom backspace ET Classic V's. Not cheap, but the good stuff rarely is.

  18. Oh Gary! I'm just ate up with jealousy! I gotta get some of those for my coupe and I too need a custom offset to clear the body. Those are flat gorgeous.

    I have a set on my 69 RS/SS. I love 'em. Evidently so did the judges at the Portland Roadster Show a few years back.
    (the wheel is in the lower right hand corner if your having trouble finding it in the picture)

    I've purchased multiple sets of wheels from them and think they're the best wheels out there. They work with you and you can get almost any sizing you want.

    I bought a set from them and received them and was amazed they looked like a piece of jewelry! Mounted some big 31 tall Hoosier tires on back and one side needed 5 oz of weight tire guys thought it was the rim, called and he said I guarantee it to be less than 1/2 oz on its own broke down the tire off and it was 1/2 oz out on its own . The owner is a very personable guy to deal with and knows his wheels. Would absolutely recommend and buy from them again!

    That is the ET 17" wheel. polished barrel, argent spokes, flat caps. 10 years old and still perfect.

    I had a set on my 32 3 window and loved them, so I now have a set on my 32 sedan delivery. Just as nice as first set. Very good people to work with. Highly recommend

    I am interested in the 16X10 FUELER wheel. I think this is a split wheel and if so do you need to run tubes?? I have enjoyed all the good comments on here so far...……..

    I've bought a set of wheels from Team III and was very happy with the quality and finish. Would definitely buy another set. May cost more than others, but quality comes at a price.
