    When I was a young fella, guys kept them covered with hub caps or wheel covers because four lugs on the wheels was a dead giveaway to something wimpy under the hood.

    I however, am a fan of the simple four lug look, especially when combined with four spokes. 4 lug Cragars.jpg

    Any other four lug fans on here, or am I the odd man out?

    I like them. My '60 Falcon runs a Ranger 8.8, that I re-drilled from 5 to 4.

    Cool, when I'm at a cruise-in or car show, I have to check out the 60's compact cars to see if I can spot some cool 4 lug wheels on them. Guess I've got 4 lug fever bad. lol:D

    Im genrally not a fan of em on 60s back stuff but I could live with it for a while if thats what I had.
    I think they are kinda cool on the smaller, later cars like vegas, pintos etc. but thats just my .02

    Must not be too many 4 lug fans out here! I've had 6 four lug wheels with good 14" radial tires on local CL for FREE, and still no calls!

    Nah, at least with my Falcons I really dig four lug wheels. It says "I bucked the trends and kept a six in my car". When the wagon came home, everybody assumed it was going to get a V8. Not even close! These things are sooooo light, and so responsive to steering input and such with a six, and get such good mileage, there just isn't any reason to go V8 with them. I have other cars to go REALLY fast in.

    If I remember right, my two '52 Willys Areo Eagle H/T's had stock, 4 lug wheels on them.

    And the front hubs were the same as the Henry J's, 5 lug back then.
