is this possible?

I'm wanting to run a set of smoothis on my soon to lowered 72 Lincoln. Cutting springs as its a budget build.
I like the look of smoothie rims but I like the spike looking lug nuts so.thinkn if I took a set of stock steel rims....have my buddy with his cad machine cut about a 1/8 inch thick piece of metal to fit cleanly just inside the edge of the rim(15ish) inches...then drill holes so the spike shaped lug nuts can go thru till they go on the stud and tighten the wheels down.
Then I can have the best of both worlds...but is it feesible? Tnx all...HG

You mean like a Moon Disc with a lug hole pattern in it??

Lug nuts would have to be like 4" long to stick even the tip out through a disc at the tire bead/rim edge area.

And then it would probably rattle
It could be done, but you might be better off to use a set of snap-on Moon Discs and attach you spikey nuts to them

dish wheel with spikes ?

I don't know the year of Mark but i got a 9 3/8 lincoln disc rear with the aluminum smoothie dish wheels at the bone yard, they might work with the Loong spikes you want. The wheels have about a 1 inch black band of paint, I thought about grinding out the small bead and polishing then on one of my projects, Mercury Monarch or versallies also use the same design with the car 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern.

You know, the more I think about it, the more that sounds familiar

Just bolt the spikes to the disc.

The spikes on the Pete are at least 2" diameter and slip on the lug nut. 5 of those would about cover the disc...

I have seen smaller spikes that would be more size correct on Harleys.
