    I need a set....do they even exist? I'd go for a set in 13", 14" or even 15".... skinny CRAGARS or TRU-SPOKES too.

    What say yooos?

    The Cragars exist, I have an ad in a Rod&Custom from '68 or so in the front reading room announcing their availability. I have actually seen them too. But, the Mopar guys that are into A body stuff are big into them and they can get pricey. The TRU-S I kinda doubt, Supreems I don't have a clue... I know the best dodge for the early bolt pattern blues is to convert over to 5 on 4 1/2" stuff with late model "A" or "F" body spindles and such, and redrill the rear. Problem solved...Kinda.

    How about going to something like a slot or Halibrand with a flat center that can be redrilled? I happen to know an O/T Maverick that looks F'n awsome with a set of slots...And is for sale too... Perhaps I've said too much.

    Yeah, Chip. Kind of the point on the re-drill. I am so DONE with mentally playing with myself on the Dart. All I am going to do at this point is go through the front end....throw some wheels on....lower the rear a bit, run same size 13's or 14's and call it done. I'm into liquidating right now as I'm really into getting the pickup on the road.

    Ryno....if I can't find a CHEAP set of chrome wheels I'll definitely go this route.

    i've got a set of 14" x 6" Cragar S/S with 5 on 4" bp on my Valiant BUT I bought them back in 1966!! Don't know if they still make them as not that long after I got mine they went to the multi-fit stuff.

    Last time I was looking through the vintage wheels in the storage room at a local old time parts store (opened in 1946) I saw a set of the slotted steel chrome wheels in the 5 on 4" plymouth bolt pattern. These are the smooth steel chrome plated wheels with the kidney bean slots. I can check again if you like.

    I've seen Keystone Kustomag wheels with that pattern as well. Not sure I've ever seen a Supreme though.

    I bought a new set of Cragers for my 68 Barracuda but they had to search 3 different warehouses to find a complete set since they were discontinued. This was in 1979. Today I guess would be much tougher.

    Thanks....I guess that will be my backup if I can't find them used.
    Stillrunners...I know I'm being picky, but I've never dug Keystone Klassics, thanks though.
