little wheels

Any body know where I could find a 15x5 wheel with a 4 to 4 1/2" back spacing. Looking for a Gennie or an OEM wheel. These are going on a 70 ltd clip job.

thanks

That backspace on a 5" is a problem. I would think it would be a front wheel drive or a semi modern small pickup.

A friend went though that looking for chevy pattern, 6" wide 15, with 4.5 backspace for his salt flat moon disc wheelcovers. He found them on a early s-10 chevy.

Semi-modern to fwd just might get the backspace, but the 5" would be a little tough, unless it was a small vehicle. Don't forget to check factory spare tires on one that has aluminum wheels...sometimes they had a steelie that was skinnier to save $ and space.

You can get up to 3" backspacing on a smooth center or rally wheel in 15 X 5 from Early Wheel .

Jason also offers up to 4" backspacing on a smooth center or rally wheel in 15 X 6.

You might give him a call to see if he can make what you need.

I have purchased from him twice this year. Excellent service and product and next day shipping on custom wheels.
