  7. I had Wheel Vintiques make up 5 custom wheels for my '40 coupe several years ago......7" wide x 15" with NOS script Ford centers, custom backspace. Their workmanship was awful......weld spatter all over the rims, raw edges on the rims also. Two of the five centers were out-of-true by way too much...not useable. The three useable ones required many hours of grinding to make them OK. I would never go back to them.

    Try Rally Wheels or Wheel Smith.

    I bought 4 Wheel Vintiques wheels a couple of years ago for my '40 coupe project; two catalog and two with custom back spaces. These are their chrome "64" series that use stock Ford vented centers with one bolt pattern, necessary because of the spider centers I will use. Maybe I was lucky, but lateral/radial run out checked out fine at our local Tire Rack on their Road Force balancer, along with good build quality and chrome.
    I initially wanted to go with Wheel Smith, but their vented wheels are multi lug drilled, fine if you're using caps or covers.

    Wheel Vintiques Series 62 and 64 wheels need to be balanced off the lug holes, lug centric balancing... The center hole was off center on every set I ever owned!

    Lug centric balancing is the best method on any wheel; steel or alloy, old or new.

    Funny, all the guys having problems with WV wheels.
    I’ve had 3 sets and they’ve been great.
    My latest ordered through Summit are 16”
    Series 14 gennies (16x 4 and 16x6) and they spun true and required minimal weights on a hunter road force balancing machine.

    On top of that they came in a really nice quality powder coat primer that my powder coating shop just had to wipe clean and coat with color.
