    I used Rally America a few years ago, but I think they just deal in wire spokes now. Early Wheel seems to be expired. Need to find some company to make custom back spacing for a new set of wheels. Any help apreciated.

    My out dated Windows XP wouldn't let me into WS site. Got on newer computer and found site fine.
    Thanks, Egads

    Ditto on Wheel Smith. I've got several sets of their steel wheels and they are great. Their powder coating is like glass. I also like to order their hubcaps fit to the wheels so there's no problems.

    Excellent service from Wheel Smith! Great quality and fast turn around! Joe
     
  8. The center hole on the Wheelsmith (OEM style) wheel is not as big as it is on a Wheel Vintiques Wheel (barely fit over my ‘63 Belair rear axle center nub.). My powder coating experience from Wheelsmith was disappointing - there was a couple chips on the edges. And just the general appearance of the center stamping was not as well defined as it is on a Wheel Vintiques wheel. Just my observations, your experience may vary.

    WheelSmith. Had 15x51/2 fronts and 16x8 rears built by them. Very nice. Stainless beauty rings and stainless caps not installed yet.
