    Did BFG ?

    Thanks for all the input guys, sounds like cooper has most all the votes. My BFGs are 9 yrs now so it's time to replace them. I will try a set of coopers this time. I will make the switch to 15s this time also. Just need 2 more steel wheels. Thanks again.

    Polish Or Bead Blast Aluminum Rims

    They will never look new again unless you are willing to spend many hrs on them. I'm not a big fan of them ethire, but hell I run black steel lol. If you like them polish them up a little and stick them on the car.

    Any demand on 14" steelies?

    15s have a better selection for tire sizes. 14s though still seem to have a pretty decent amount of new tires available. 60s 70s 75s. Hard to tell the difference on a car unless you go read the side wall. I would keep the 14s, some of stock look restorations still run hub caps. Lol, I just...

    Question on 15" oem steel wheels.

    I have a pair of 15 x 6.5 , I'm sure some call them 7". They are 3.5 " back space. I was going to call around a few local yards to locate another pair. Does the 80s /90s 1/2 ton Van's and pickups use that wheel ? Thanks.

    Magnum 500’s NOT hub centric !

    When wheel shopping if your looking at used road wheels aka magnum 500s pay close attention to the lug holes. Make sure they are not worn out from years, and over tightening. Without your hub centered worn lug holes will make the wheel near impossible to mount and balance straight.l...

    Talk to some circle track guys, One of them will point you to a welder that will move your center to the back space you need. Repaint and balance .

    Fair Price on Magnum 500 wheels?

    Heck , 14 , 15 , going down the street good luck telling the difference. Even walking up to a car your going to have to read the side wall to tell. True the tire selection is better for 15s .

    No 15x8 magnums anywhere

    If you want to get it rolling you could run 15x7 all around. Once the 8s are available get a pair . Sell one pair of the 7s and get part of your $ back.

    Raised White Letters

    Grab a box of SOS pads at the grocery store. If they do not get the letters back to white nothing will.

    Wheels & Tires

    I also have 245 60s on the rear of my 67. 4 .25 back spacing on a 7" steel wheel. Nothing rubs. Yes for sure there is room for a little more but I can swap a tire on the side of the road if needed.

    The Forgotten World Of Bias Ply

    There is no one kind fits all answer to the bias / radial discussion. Apples & Oranges. To me , someone who has used both kinds as daily drivers I will say the radial tire improves ride and last longer. The bias tires have a stiffer side wall and if in good condition seem to want to roll under...

    Studs and lugs for mag slots

    those wheels will use the round washer , as far as lug nuts you will have to measure how thick the wheel is at the lug hole and the hole dia. you will want the shank of the lug nut to contact as many threads as possible without bottoming out on the drum or stud base. Old aluminum mags are cool...

    Tire balancing question

    I hate tire shops that just keep tacking on weight until it zeros. I used to mount and balance tires as a kid , no spin , all bubble balance. I have tried to tell these {techs???} that you have to break it down and move the tire if your nailing on lots of lead to one spot LOL. Try telling them...
