I have another coupple sets down at the shop,i will go take pictures and post them,
Oh my, having the actual wheels in a pic is luxurious. I gotta make like a baby and head out but yeah look at your edit and give me the wheel shots at 5he angles seen in the edit. I am accustomed to fishing on web for wheel shots. Anything you want canbe shown whether you have some or not.

This is a great opportunity to not mention Mitch being wide open to critique concerning era clash... whut with TTs on a 38 and all.

I am with you on that. When the recession came, I had to scramble to keep a DD in good rubber.

Trouble is, I had to let them all go but one. And the song remains the same, I never recovered.

That was on purpose, that all my junks took the same wheels. Except the IROCs that were front / rear specific. Glad the GP didn't sell... I briefly had it on CL for $3,500.

Aftermarket wheels are wide open as to vehicle. It's the factory wheels that get a stigma of being for the vehicle they were released on and don't look "quite right" somehow on anything else.
I tricked people with the Rally II's I had on my Chevelle for a while. I put SS caps on them...

Those look GR-RRREAT on that car. Best OE "5 spoke", IMO.

I hope you're right because the Radir looking Cragars on mine are put on prewar stuff too, and look cool. Just neither those or TTs were around in the 50s.
