I just read this entire thread WOW! Ithink Ill be dreaming of old wheels tonite!
fronts on the 31.
So very good ...... I could cover the walls in my shop with old wheels
i'm almost sorry that i'm not buying any more wheels, cuz i'd snatch these bitches up...
i eat ,sleep,and dream wheels.....heres a few more of mine:
15x4 crestlines ( just got the matching 16x8 1/2's on bluestreaks) , 15x4 halibrands, 15x4 american magnesium( w/ matching 15x8 1/2's) , 15x4 fenton gryos w/ nos caps, 1974 15x4 cragars,
Pictures saved! Thanks for posting those!
GOD i'd love some 15x4 crestlines on my coupe!!!!
Subscribing, great thread!
I've got a set of 14x6 5 spoke ET wheels... guess I should post a picture. Trying to find out more info on them.
Does anyone know what brand of wheel this is? It is on Tommy Grove's 69/70 Mustang f/c. Any help is appreciated.............RatPack............
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.
great thread guy!!!! i love vintage wheels , and photos!!! just read the whole thing start to end..... yes... i think i too am addicted to wheels
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...............
Here's one I got from a AMC Javlin F/C last year....
One more of a Torq-Thrust mag wit Goodyear redlines... Damn, I love these!!
i wish someone would sell me a pair of skinny slots...ford or gm pattern,i need a pair for my gasser...
on my roadster, i made the front 15x4's from original 15x6" american d spokes and the rear 15x9 3/4" are made from 15x7's
Kiwi Kev : Email me here email@example.com I am new to the HAMB and havent figured out all the different symbols or how to post pictures etc.
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
We can't have a thread on Vintage Front Wheels without a pair of American Dragmasters !!! >>>>.
halibrand spindlemounts with silvertowns
My Ansens........they are very light.....
Widow Maker Rims IMAG0037
Split Rims with center welded from other rims, with Blue Streak Slicks...............And they look like they were used. And still hold air.
I just got these 15 x 3.5" / 4.75" BS Fenton Gyros off Craigslist.
They're going on my '28 Tudor, wrapped by a set of Firestone 145R/15 shoes.
These are... ah were 4" Cragar SS's with old 560/15 tires
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?
Well i have been looking for front wheels for my project wagon and i had to revisit this thread. It is still awesome !
