    Wondering what would be the best steel wheel to locate for the sedan . I was thinking some middle 70 Ford 15 X 6 would give it the right look . It currently has some mid 90 ranger mags and after looking at it for this last year there not going to cut it . I will be running the fenders . Someone did some photoshop renditions on what it should look like so here is some before and after . One with the thought of some color

    Try your local trailer supply for 5x4.5 steel wheels. Just don't get the white wagon wheel ones!

    I have seen some with cap 'nubs'. Guess it depends where they get 'em from. Trailer wheels usually run about $35 with a tire. We've bought several at a time when the deals come through...

    not to hijack this thread, but what do you get for shipping on your 15x4.5's? i may order a set monday:cool:


    Hey Bluestang67...........all of our gooseneck trailers at the farm here have tires that specifically say for trailer use only and not to be put on a vehicle. you may want to keep an eye out on that. i doubt the rims would be a big deal from a trailer to a car but you may want to double check with folks that know:confused:
