    Nice job Joe.
    How does the finish hold up to rock chips, etc?

    It’s uncool to hijack a thread to sell your own stuff.

    They also appear to be PS ENGINEERING aluminum roadster wheels. That wheel from Halibrand wasn’t available in a 5 lug bolt on version. But what do I know?

    DDDenny, So far the car has just over 1200 miles without any noticeable wheel wear. I have been dodging the pot holes though. Photo was taken this past weekend at Syracuse Nationals.

  12. I never realized that the old M151 Army Jeeps had magnesium wheels, they are 16x7 in size. Screenshot_20180729-213158_Google.jpg

    The early production of M151 did have Magnesium wheels but by 1965 almost all of them had steel wheels.
