  4. Most chromers wont touch wheels, so if you find one who will, that'll probably be your guy.

    I don't know of anyone else that does it! Thankfully, they know what they are doing. I haven't mounted my wheels yet, so I'll try to grab one from storage and post a photo.

    I had a set of 14" early Mustang wheels chromed for my '61 Falcon. They are 4-lug so I had to have them made.

    Unless they just started back doing the reverse wheels word was that Rally America was just doing wire wheels since the fire took out their building a couple of years ago when they had the big grass/brush fire in that area. Still it doesn't hurt to call and ask.

    That's what I heard as well. I would love to hear they are back doing steel wheels, Jimmy had built several sets for me, always pleased with them.

    We have a local machinist here that will reverse them and true them on his lath, might check in your area. Chrome has gotten real high around here and the local shops have closed.

    Might be easiest to just go to a company like Wheel Vintiques. They offer custom backspacing (reversed) and chrome finish for just about any size and style wheel you want.
