  1. If you can find some spiders to fit the 5-on-5 1/2 bolt circle, let me know-I'll take a set!

    Thanks. I've been looking for some push through bullet caps for them, but haven't had much luck. I may end up just getting some trim rings to add some chrome to them.

    Here are some links:

    Rally America (http://www.rallyamerica.com/) comes highly recommended from a few people on the HAMB.

    Go with the Radir Mags personally I think they are the sickest looking wheels by far.

    Hey Im glad you brought those up.. I had been meaning to ask about that...
    I had always thought if I was gonna go classic and modern ... why not a larger steel wheel like 63chevy did. Plus Im looking at them on EBAY and they are going for 50 bucks a wheel... same at a local U pull it. for 50 bucks.. .a little elbow grease. you got a nice set of wheels. Id prolly put a thicker tire on just for ride. and to fill in that wheel well.

    What do you guys think about these... certainly more cost effective... even if I went with the 17 inch stock wheels. and not the 20s...those run 39 bucks.

    Lol I could actually afford the tires then.

    I have the reds but I think Im going to change it. I do want some thin white walls and more of a stock rim with the spider caps but just not red, however it does make that seafoam green pop. Im going to re paint the white top and maybe have the rims match it or just go stock rims with the same lowered height. I like stock custom...just lower a little and Im good. Also I think wide whites look cool on just about anything...
    but like most people on here we all have our own little style.

    yeah thats what Im thinking about doing....just clean the rims and caps up...maybe get a little different type from Coker. I love the V8 symbol in the middle. Maybe sell the ones i have so i can get chrome bumers, grille and what not...

    Yeah, I like the look... lol IF I could afford to lower it that is.
    600 bucks is rough to come by and that s just the front....esp when I got other necessities
    like rear end work... body work... dash work... interior.... so on so forth.

    Maybe in a few years I can slap some drop beams on it. lol.

    i got lucky and found my front beams on ebay for like 390.00 then i cut the coils, and trimmed the front crossmember to give the beams a little more room to move. the back was easy, just bought a set of 3" weld on axle perches. flip the leaf springs to the bottom of the rearend, and weld the new perches to the bottom of the axle, that was a quick 5" or so inches for the rear..
     
  27. I agree, yucky.

    Rally America is an Alliance vendor so if you join the Alliance you can get a discount. Coker is a member as well and a great place to buy wide whites.

    Try looking for a set of American Racign Salt Flat wheels. I think they would look good on your truck and they are available in larger diameters.
