I have a pair of these wheels and nothing to put them on yet!!
does this count
Red wheels were cool in the '50's - doesn't that make them sorta traditional? Maybe some of the red wheel haters just aint old
enough to remember how it was??
Red looks good as does so many other choices
not the best pic but it is red wheels
Who here don't like red wheels??....thats like saying you don't like Hot women!!
As a 65+ year old hotrodder since the age of 14½, be advised that red wheels on hot rods have been around a lot longer than the 'rockabilly' trends you are whining about. They copied hot-rodders, not the other way around. Nothing wrong with red wheels....they're like anything else, you don't like them, don't get any. I'm sure you're just delighted with milk truck/artillery wheels which are a much more recent trend.
A flatblack hotrod look best with redwheels in my book, thats why i bought mine...
I even got em on my swap meet wagon
Would you believe 4 years! HRP
Yep, go with what you like instead of listening to all these experts! I LIKE RED!!!!
Personally,I like red wheels and if nothing else they are traditional,,guys much older than me were using red wheels when I was a kid,,
The right car makes a difference.HRP

Yeah but, this wasn't fair, I never got to vote...Not to mention I have seen some of the things this crowd has voted for before......LOL. I mean really?? Sandstone steelies beating halibrands??....I am thinking this Poll was rigged!! Oh well, I never did want to be like most people anyhow, So I will keep my red wheels, maybe they will stand out in a crowd of "Sandstone Beige steelies" someday....LOL
