Custom steel wheels?

Post by Jer73 » Sun Nov 22, 2015 4:00 am

Anybody have any idea who makes custom steel wheels in an 18in?
Or Forged alloys for less than 2 grand for the set?

I have been looking at Weld racing and they have something that would work but at $620.00 a piece I am hesitant :?

Yes 8.7in backspace is correct. The front spacing on the wheel is what's important for me I need between 2.5 to 2.75in from hub mating surface to the outside lip of the rim. Anything more than that is going to force me to cut the fenders up and I am really trying to avoid that.

Hey there, if you have not been succesful in your search try http://www.stocktonwheel.com/, or https://www.wheelvintiques.com/. I have worked with stockton wheel in the past with early Olds steel wheels, there wasnt much they couldnt do. Good Luck
