  • Question of the Day: What

    Wheels are such a huge part of the look and performance package of any car. There are thousands of different designs out there, from the classic steel “rally” wheels that adorned so many cars to far more racy looking stuff like Mini-lites, magnesium Halibrands, and on and on. Outside of the commercially available stuff there [...]

        I have a thing going for Turbines right now... but certain cars need certain wheels. A Duster with Ansen Slots. AC Cobra with pin drive Halibrands. THen there is this.

          I like joes choice.. final appearance.
          I have had the uniiug keystone classics, the cragar was a common one.
          5 spoke and 5 lug.. I still don't get it. I even lostone on the highway.
          the best for an 8 cyl comes on a truck as an 8 lug.

          every car has a specific.
          4x140 on an old boxer worships the 20 pound peugeot rally wheels.

          my favorite is modern alloy, not spoked..solid bead. so solid a 6 inch rim looks like a 8 inch with 9 inch wide tread.

          I lost a classic wheel on the highway, sheered five studs.
          I have been a bitch about wheels since.

          the icing on the cake was the cracked center of a 24.5 inch alcoa on a steering tire on one of my dads rigs.

          indestructibly respected? think again.

          the greatest wheel is an ugly one.

          for the sake of photos..this one makes sense. does not look half bad.
          an excuse for spokes is getting lug to match it.
          a 4lug could get away with this same wheel.

          peugeot..very heavy. 4x140

          it could be in my top 3 of all time. I liked them enough to smoke a 3 inch holesaw on 1/8th titanium sheets to make centers.
