    Thanks! Do you know what style/name of Halibrands? They are not Sprints or the Kidney Bean's, or are they and they are being run with the backside out? At first glance I thought they might be a set of spindle mount slot mags with the backside out. Wish I had a close up of the opposite side of the wheel. The rears on this car were Safety Racing dirt/sprint car wheels........RatPack...........

    I think those are Halibrand Sprint spindle mounts.
    Real Rodders Wheels sells some very similar to these.

    That wheel was a low production model Halibrand made, that appeared to be similar to a 15x4.5 Sprint bolt-on, turned around backwards, then made into a spindle mount. Real Rodders Wheels http://www.realrodderswheels.biz/ is supposed making a replica of this wheel as a bolt on version. They'll also be making a back bolt version with steel inserts in the back of the wheel, so that you can bolt it from behind through your disc brake hat.

    Hey Bruce Larson used these same wheels on the front of his 66 Chevelle. Here is a better picture of them and they look exactly like the ones from Real Rodders that they call "Winged Express". This is the June 66 issue of Car Life........RatPack...............

    Can anyone ID these?

    There's no name or markings other than 15 x 6 stamped in the rim. They are steel rims and mag/alum (?) center. Thx

    Still looking for those skinny rims to run with Buick aluminum drums on an open wheeler, 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern. The choices are slim for skinny rims other than repo steel wheels. Don't want too much of the drum showing. Anybody got some aluminum slots in the narrow width with 5.5 bp?
