    I just bought these wheels for my wife's Chevy II wagon. There are no markings in the inside of the wheel. I know the caps are Appliance but I do not think the wheels are Any one know what kind of wheels these are?

    Does this take a mag lug?

    I say that NOT because of the 'A' on the cap. They look like an early cragar knockoff that AR would have put out.

    They are in fact Appliance "steel spokes" from the late 1970's or very early 1980's

    Thanks for the great info. THere is a little rust around the bolt holes. I was thinking about painting that part black if the rust does not clean up very good. Thoughts?

    no---wd40 and some 4 (0000) steel wool and good old elbow grease should take care of that---don't do the paint thing.

    What color is your wife's wagon? Biting ideas here, but those would look cool with the centers detail-painted to match...

    Oh, and some quick math tells me that 5 packs of 4 lugnuts is not too many for "us" 5-lug guys...

    The wagon is turquoise. I did a little research on rust removal and I am pretty certain that a littel Autosol will do wonders on the rust and clean up the chrome pretty good. Might try a littel this weekend if I can find time.

    Thanks everyone.

    Are these the world famous one-dented-spoke wheels I've heard about? I think they made them for Pintos. LOL. Gary
