ntfday is right on. Sometimes Ansen's or chrome reverse's on the back and black steelies with baby moons on the front. That pretty much said that you were saving for the other rims for the front. Don't remember Radirs that much just on dragsters.or gassers. That was in SoCal. I'm not sure about the rest of the world.

Period correct rims
Thanks folks. I'm going to put 15x7's on the front and 15x8's on the rear. You were right Techinspector1. Both the Sprints and the Torq Thrusters were introduced around 1963.
I'll put some pictures on my project journal in a few days.

Period correct rims
Both '41's are restored and use a 16" rim. These have 6:70 X 16 tires on them. I have seen some with a 7:50 X 16 too. More may respond. I always thought the '41's had a nice appearance to them.

DrBee, looks great.

My dad got his in 1968. I would say if you're doing a mid 60s to late 60s theme...they're correct. If you wanted to go earlier, it'd probably be chrome reverse dish with a spider cap; or painted steelies with chrome caps.
Apparently (Im 31 tomorrow) what we think of as normal bits for our hot rods, were still high dollar in the 60s and most guys had mixed/matched rim combos (steelies on the back and cragars on the front for example) Im sure the O.G. Hotrodders will chime in here

Period correct rims.
I'm working on my '41 Chevy Coupe and I currently have Ansen Sprint wheels on the car, but I want to be period correct for the early 60's. Were the Sprints out during that time or do I have to do something different ? I do not want to use hubcaps.
