    A great photo with a great background. Just like to focus on the star of the show.

    No matter how many times I see this photo I still love it. For me it's the wheels and the car. Either look great without the other. Better yet together.

    I find 15x8.5's and 15X7's the most common sizes to find. 15x6 are sort of challenging. I can't recall the last time I found any 15x5. I wish you well with your search. Your car and the wheels are lookin' good as is.

    Back in the late '90's they used this roadster that I'd built for one of their ads and was given this set of wheels . Nice people . hpsc9-rev2[1].jpg IMG_2068.JPG

    Cragar S/X 15 x 6 one piece aluminum. They made about a BILLION Cragar SS but only made the S/X for a couple of years. I've got 6 or 7 of these. 000_0631.JPG

    Works for me!
    By the way, have you ever had any International Dragmaster five spoke wheels?

    All I can say is WOW. Kudos to wheelguy. Very impressive collection. I'm suffering envy. Like the cars too.

    Did you do any of the polishing/restoration?
     
  22. I believe you have that backwards. They started out in Walnut Creek then moved to Port Chicago before Port Chicago ceased to exist in about 1967 and Crestline was no more. The first series had each word in the lug nut space. The last ones only had MARK II by the lug holes adjacent to the valve hole. Over the years I've had all the variations. Now I only have the later MARK II in 15 x 4, 15 x 7, and 15 x 8 1/2".

  23. Also the earliest ones are smooth out to the edge as in the first picture. The later have a raised edge like the second picture
