Where can I get custom made factory style steel wheels? I would really like to get a 15 x 7.5 or a 15 x 8 with a 4.5 backspace. Is there a place that would build wheels to my specs?

These are the steel wheels I picked up from them.


These are the road wheels with trim rings.

Are you going to get the chrome or the trim ring styled steel wheel?

BTW, I found the center caps for my styled wheels for $35 each at Specialty Wheel out of Sandy Oregon at the Portland swap meet. That was 3 years ago. These are alot cheaper than Y/O and look great.

Wheel Vintiques gives a few people good service and others, well, let's just say it's random. I walked in there trying to get some wheels made up and they didn't want to do it. They kept trying to sell me something that wouldn't even work. I wound up making them myself with rims that actually came from WV, but they had to be bought by another wheel shop here in town who would sell them to me. From that one experience (and others I have heard about) they will never get my business.

I want to get the steelies powder coated in black. I think I'm going to order a cheap 8 inch rim from Jegs, then mount the rubber so that I can measure the actual cross section, then get some rims made. The backspace should turn out to be 4.5 to 4.75 inches, no room for error ???

Jim - I'll call Wheel Vintiques, stockton and Pete Paulsen for quotes and see who sounds the most helpfull and competent.

Thanks for the help :)
