Post 4 lug wheel selections
Don't get me wrong, I think the 4 lug wheels that people have (aspen wheels and outlaw2 wheels) look good. But If some company would come up with a different style wheel, other then the aspen slots and outlaw 2 to fit our 4 lug vintage cars, they will do quite well on the sell of them.... A style that would be more vintage looking like cragers or a chrome looking wheel that fit the 60's era...The 4 lug wheel is a signature of the inline six cylinder. Although I don't blame people for going to a 5 lug set up for a great deal of selection you can choose from... I have an 8 inch 4 lug rear axle in the garage ready for a rebuilt and get rid of my 7.25 axle set up...
I just think some manufacture should come up with more of a selection for 4 lug wheels in 14 and 15 inch..If you google 4 lug wheels for like my car 66 mustang, you have a lot of forums that talk about the only 2 selection to choose from aspen and outlaw 2......I know Classic Inline was taking a survey or posting a photo of some cool looking 4 lug wheels that he was thinking of getting manufactured. More of a vintage look. I guess it never materialized ... Maybe something might change in the near future...

Have you looked at XXR 513s?

Looks like Minilites.

Post Re: 4 lug wheel selections
I picked up a pair of wheels for $20 at a Rhinebeck swap with traditional look'. They say "Dragway" on rim. They're on the front of the '61. They have less offset than stock so sit wider but still run 195/70/14's no problem and fit the Scarebird disc conversion. Disc conversions ususally eliminate using original "Coke Bottle / Dogdish" hubcaps as only availabe wheels have centers that don't clear calipers.


I'd like to see "chrome reverse " 4 lug Maverick type, they'd probably fit disc conversions.

8) dont limit yourself to stock type ford and aftermarket wheels. there are a number of cars that use the same 4x4.5 bolt pattern, older datsuns and nissans for instance, so you might find wheels you like from those cars.

Check out Vintage wheel works V48. They have them in a 16x8 with a 4.5 back spacing. They are what I am going to put on my mustang. If you call them they are very friendly and helpful.

Post Re: 4 lug wheel selections
Here is a set of photos of a 65- 66 mustang that have two different 4 lug wheels on them and is labeled inline six cylinder...The first set of the photos I'm real interested in. They are the steel chrome ones. They look like 15 inch rims. Just curious if anyone knows what kind of wheels they are.....There is another set of different wheels on the 65-66 mustang set of photos on this link and they look like 16 inch alum. rims. , I'm more curious of the chrome 4 lug ones on this 66 mustang that are posted below, Can anyone help out and tell me who makes both sets of wheels... I'm more interested in the steel chrome ones...That look like 15 inch rims. They don't fill up the whole wheel well like the alum ones do... And they have a more vintage look to them being chrome wheels then the alum ones do....
Any info would be great... Both wheels look cool, just like the chrome ones...
Thanks

Thanks for the web site. A lot of info but it does not give me wheel types that would fit that 4 by 4.5 set up to cross reference that wheel that I'm looking for in the photo I linked above..Do you think That Is a factory Wheel that I can cross reference it to another car.

Post Re: 4 lug wheel selections
yes!

if you want wheels for your 4x4.5 the cross reffrence sheet gives other make model and years that you can ask for that will fit the same bolt pattern in the size you want. :wink:

you'll probably be looking for other specks also like
15inch rim
7 inch wide
0 offset
backspacing


but at least you know more car models to search with when your hunting

Post Re: 4 lug wheel selections
Rostyle wheels from an MGB have a 4 x 4.5 pattern and look a lot like the Magnum wheels, esp when chromed or with trim rings.

Image

I've always liked Minilites and the Koenig Rewinds are a good clone with a better selection of sizes.

Image

The early Datsun 240/260Z and the Triumph TR4/250/6 used the same size pattern and there are a lot of wheels available for them.

Those wheels are cool. What are your guys opinions on these 4 lug weld rodlite wheels that will bolt right up to the 60's ford cars with proper back spacing of 3.5 inches and are 15 inch rims... I like the looks of these and are wanting other opinions on them... I have a 66 mustang also , and here are some photos to the link of a 66 mustang with these wheels (weld rodlites) installed on it... I think it looks cool, give me you're opinions...

Thanks
