Another 16x10 Halibrand but notice the window is different than the pair I posted above. The lip goes all the way around the window on these. I used to think the ones above had the lip polished smooth towards the front, but that's not the case.
Tires are old 11.00-16 AF/X M&H Racemasters.
I hope this isn't to new and off topic But my brother bought these wheels in 1974 and I've very rarely seen any ever since. Apliance Wire Mags with Fourmula 1 Super Stock tires H50/14
Shakeypuddin55 I love your 55. I have ever since I first saw it on Pass Time.
It's the 55 I've been wanting to biuld for years.
great thread...mags and drags...gotta love it!
Jeez, Kev, someone would think you had a fetish or something! Great photos!!!
Now, are you going to have a contest to guess which tire/wheel combos are on whose FED? I saw lots of famous cars. Stellings and Hampshire, Frantic Four, Mooneyes, and lots more that I can't remember as I sit here typing.
Question for the real history experts. Who is driving the blue SOHC Ford powered Tinker Toy V? Is that Art Malone? Tinker Toy was the Pete Robinson car and I remember it being red with the SOHC Ford. A little help please. If someone else already asked or posted about it, I'm sorry. I haven't had time to go through all eight pages of this post.
Got some of these vintage 5 spokes on my El Camino. Anybody know what kind they are?
Right up my ally
Great to see the new wrikel slicks on mounted, really can see what will fit!
Have a pair of vary nice 11x16 American five spoke mags, with abit of cracked 11.50x16 Blue Streaks.
Thanks for posting!!
I don't know what its but I have one too!
It's a steel hoop with an aluminum face? heavy!
I found mine in a scrap pile 20 years ago and thought it would be cool to hang on the garage wall.
Anyone have pics of cars wearing some 15x10 American Racing Daisys?
I just bought some on that auction site and I am thinking of running them on my Topolino with tall Radir spokes on the front.
15x10 American Racing Mags
While were on the subject of rear wheels and slicks. I keep seeing old early A/FX pictures of cars that look like their running the wheels backwards. If so dose anybody know what wheel it was and what size? Do any of you guys have these pictures?
Southfork and MotionNova I am running two wheels,14x7, exactly like yours. They had 'ET Mag' labels inside when I got them in the mid 70's.
here is a picture of my new ones fronts are 15x3 maybe ansens not sure didnt see any markings with 24"m/t tires, rears are def sprints 15x10 with a set of old school m&h cheaters i just picked up 28x10.5x15
These are the new E.T. classic 5
I bought these a couple years ago they 14 inch 4 3/4 x 6 and 7 inch and two different makes I think. I would like to know what they are exactly. There are no brand names on them. The 6" says it it meets SEMA 5-1 spec. The 7 inch ones have a small diamond symbol on the inside. The holes and center cap screw holes are 1/8 difference. Just trying to figure out what I have. Gonna put these one my Nova.
They look even better getting some HEMI abuse !!!!
pic borrowed some time back, its my fave screen saver, THANKS.
Well they're not "mags" but they are the "slicks" for my Nova Wagon!
How about some 10.50x15 Bluestreaks on 15x7 Americans.
My beloved Bubble Tops wheels
15x8 halibrands, firestone Indy
One of the best threads ever!!!
i had these 16 x 8 1/2" mags and mint 11.00 x 16 goodyear blue streaks there and nobody bought them so i brought them home. still available
Cool thread Kev.
15 x 9.25 Americans with Hursts In Action
Tudor, what size Hursts are those? They seem to fit the wheel well reveal perfectly.
Those are the 10x 30's They are actually something like 29.5 tall on a 30" carcus.
