    Does anyone know what the backspacing on a 15x6 wheel would have been originally in the 60's? Did they offer different backspacing? I am getting ready to order a set for my '54 and I don't want wheel center pushed into center?

    What they offer now is 3-3/8" back space. @Muttley those look so awesome. I want mine to look like them?

    THAT is the style of car I love.
    I would so love to own one just like it.
    It's just spot on to me.

    Thanks. I'm not sure what the backspacing on my wheels is, they are 15x4 and I was fortunate enough to find them on eBay for a 'Buy It Now' of $200. I couldn't believe how lucky I was to find them in the Ford pattern (that kind of stuff never happens to me).

    Always wondered about those super-duper deep dish Cragars on the early 70's ear show cars, like Turnpike hauler for example:
    [​IMG]
    They surely weren't standard catalogue items? Did guys like Dan woods order Cragar centres and mount them in their own rim outers with extreme offset maybe?
    Other examples that spring to mind include Milk Truck and Stage Fright stagecoach.

    Thanks Kan Kustom. The car was originally modified in the early 70's. I tried to restored it back to its former glory from then.
