    There is someone in the heartland that specializes in custom steel wheels for Mopars... can anyone help me remember who that is and his website?

    Thanks,
    Jim

      Unknown. Once I get the paint on and the axel in so I can do measurements I want to get a back spacing that allows a good size tire on an early Dart.

      Jim, you can run a 245/60/15 with a 7'' x 4 1/4'' backspace. I did on a 64 Dart. IMG_1997.jpg

      perfect. The Cokers are 4” backspacing. Do you think that would have worked?

      You talking on early A's? I have used 15x7's with a 4" backspace and 225 70's on the black wheels and 235 70's on the Halibrand clones.

        Yes.4'' should. Like all Mopars of this area you may find that it fits on one side and the inner fender on the other side may be closer and need some massaging.

          This is the first place I thought of: http://www.classicchambered.com/classic/wheels.html

          ...but, I guess not custom and he's not supplying anymore.
