Wire Wheels

I am looking for a supplier for 15' inch wire wheels for a flexride axle.

Merry Christmas

Hey there, Brian!

Try TrueSpoke, Wheel Vintiques, or Stockton Wheel to name a few. Pick up an issue of Street Rodder magazine at the news-stand and check out their ads (go to the advertisers' index to find the page numbers). No need to buy the magazine ... ;-} ;-} ... just take a note pad & write down the #s ...!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! And as always ...

CHEERS!

Victoria British or Moss Motors has Dunlops for 15". Both are British car parts suppliers. I believe they are made in India of all places. Good looking but kinda pricey :twisted:

The decision has been made. The Misses says she likes the 30 spoke 39 ford wheels on Pete and Lynne's "Bubble".
