Where can I find....
 
Don't know where else to put this so here it is. When I got rid of my '37 Chevy I got a set of brand new 33x21.5 Mickeys for my '32 as part of the trade. My goal for a rod is a old style (now) this may change as its gonna take a few years to complete. I would like to find out where I could get a set of 15" rims 15" wide. Preferably the plain steel wheels. So do any of you know where someone custom builds rims? I can't find anybody around my hometown who will even look into it for me. And I can never find anything on the net. Let me know.

Hey thanks guys I have went to the early wheel outfit and had a look, prices look fair and I'm sure they're a good product but they only make a 14" wide rim, I'm not sure if they would fit the monster 21.5 wide boots. I have e-mailed them to see what they think and maybe, just maybe they do make a 15" wide wheel.

And I'm looking for the Ajax outfit now.

Stockton wheel can widen wheels to any width.
Here is the link The page says 14" but I bet if you call them, you could get a better idea.
Later,

Thanks Weimer I have called and the Lady said they would get back to me. I'm hoping.

I have thought about the rear being all tire Ian, and thats why I'm gonna do it. I want a Muscle Machines style rod, just plain old exagerated. As for the Tire bill there's no problem there, the ones I got are new, and I don't think either of my choices for the powerplant will be able to smoke them boots.

1st choice is my 409, it complete but needs completely redone, and I'm finding that they are kinda pricey to build compared with the other choice a SBC. Its going to be a low buck build, so far I have purchased nearly nothing. Just trades and working for parts. So as you can well imagine the Mill will also be fairly low dollar. Just a cruiser for now. The body won't be cheaped out on however (good friends a body man!) Yeah I know how to pic my friends;)

Anyways I gotta quit talkin' about it cause once I start I can't stop..... Or sleep..:D
