Caps, red, trim rings. Like mine.
Caps! ...and what a beautiful car.
I'd say with the red wheels I'd keep the caps.
Caps and add trim rings....
Definately with caps. I've always loved your car, man that's one clean '40!
If I were to change the wheels, I would probably get a set of those 26"ers that spin when you stop.
X2 for sure
Caps looks more finished, but no caps looks like the street brawlers when I was a kid.
So it is a matter of what you are after I suppose. Maybe caps for the Goodguys or NSRA events and no caps when you are looking for a race.
no offense intended to the clubs mentioned or the members there of.
I like it with the caps on.
I gotta admit, it looks "meaner" without the caps. Looks great both ways tho!
without everytime. looks a bit poncey with. i see from the poll without is not a popular choice so I'd go against the grain and chuck 'em away. I don't conform...
I like it both ways, but I would keep the caps on.
And caps= street ready !!!! Drive it both ways !!!!!
W/! ...maybe rings, maybe not
like the caps,but the car also seems to be lower in the rear
Taking the hamb to the streets
agreed. i would'ent use red for the wheels. your car though!
Thanks to all the 145 who voted. 121 voted "with caps". 21 voted withoout caps.
I really appreciate all the ideas that were offered and will now go "with caps". Wheels will stay red as that's the way it was in 1960's where I lived. Plus, I learned a new word "poncey" which is defined as follows:
poncey , poncy If you say that someone or something is poncey, you mean you do not like them because they are too feminine or artistic.
Count me in for spiders too!
No caps! Looks like its ready to run! Nice to see I'm in the minority...I think that can be a good thing!
I don't think anyone is making spider caps for 5x 51/2 bolt pattern.
spider caps might look pretty good in my opinion
No caps, but paint the wheels black
If it is that hard to decide, put hubcaps only on the right side and none on the left side...that way you are covered either way...leave the wheels red, the car needs the color. The red may be too light& bright, paint them maroon.
My vote...no caps, black wheels with rings and chrome lugs....if it were mine probably blackwalls too.
Two totally different aesthetics there....it really has more to do with your personality and how you wish to project that "feeling" about your car....therefore not voting...you should want to figure that out on your own....just sayin..
Caps fo sho.
