Well, I'm thinking of trying a set of wheels on a 1958 Dodge. Modified car. Not stock.
Looked for SORT OF time/era correct.
Gonna try these....

The pic is not showing for me (yet).

I have a couple of sets of 15" Astro Supreme wheels on my cars.
Most of my cars are midly customized, so the wheels look the period for me.

Unlike popular believe, short of custom made wheels, there isn't alot. Just because the bolt circle and center hole fits, it doesn't mean you should run them on a FL car.
In front, Offset is very important, not to mention that wheels sticking out of the wheel housing look downright stupid on FL cars. Most aftermarket wheels do not have enough backspacing.

I'm not much into "wheels that stick out of wheelhousings"?!?
I'll post pics when on. I'm pretty picky about wheel fit.

Those are what I am shooting for - maybe next year.

Chrome set on a 56 Lancer in the same colours as my car. I would go with the grey spokes like the 55 Lancer below the 56.

Isn't the white/black/yellow with "mags" the car formerly owned by band leader Doc Severenson? If so, I test drove that car when for sale some 8(?) years ago.

they look good

 

5 spoke style/hot rod/ cragars work for these cars. steelies/smoothie also work. Spun rims...

the 3 piece forged simply do not.... deep lipped. unless your doing a super custom, deep lipped rims dont look right on these cars.

Have to be shallow "hub cap" looking. I think i just found a new rim for my car though while looking I am considering also using a White Lighting Racing Smoothie rim.

You can get them for a great price, great quality smoothie.

I'm not sure I would like Cragars on my 58, Torque Thrust maybe. Not Cragars.
I'm not a big fan of steelies/smoothies on MY car, that's for sure. Not the look I'm looking for.....
What's a "spun rim"? What 3 pieced forged??
I don't see how deep lipped rims can be used? Unless on the back and the rear end shortened......?

Maybe, but in real live in in 1958 not existent. Having read about all 1959-61 available car magazines, I have never seen them, don't even remember an ad. If they were run, not on fullsize cars, only dagsters, strip only cars.
Maybe someone here can post a pic of a full size car with T-trusts from the 50s? I thing they look totally out of place on a finned jet age automobile.

"History

"Romeo Palamides, an early drag racing innovator and grandfather of jet car racing, designed and crafted leading edge, high strength-to-weight magnesium drag racing wheels for a competition dragster designed in the early 1950s for competition. The vehicle debuted on the cover of the November 1956 issue of Hot Rod Magazine. The car gained attention but, in the early years of hot rodding, there was considerable street enthusiast interest in the lightweight, high-tech wheels he had custom-designed for the car. Romeo's vision, working from Jim Ellison's small machine shop in San Francisco, along with engineering innovator Tom Griffith, evolved into America's leading aftermarket wheel company. In 1956, they formed American Racing Equipment." https://www.americanracing.com/

Platinum Equity investment group acquired American Racing Equipment Inc in June 2005.[1]

Torq Thrust

American Racing became famous with the Torq Thrust wheel that, although first applied on the dragstrip, became a popular street racing wheel. The Torq Thrust was specifically designed with a "tapered parabolic contour" spoke, as opposed to a semi-solid modular design, to increase brake cooling and simultaneously decrease wheel mass.

The American Racing Torq Thrust wheel is considered by some as the most famous muscle car wheel of all time[2] and is sometimes credited as starting the entire custom wheel movement.[2]"

I alllllllmost went 18s on a 1967 Charger of mine a few years back. Looked at car after car after car. I went with 15s lol

I have seen a couple cars with 17/18s I didn't mind. Just honestly not for me I think. 20s and up for sure not me.

I don't like the most modern billet wheels on older cars honestly. New cars sure.

D500Boy,

Yup, as I said, dragsters/strip only. Anybody got a pic of Torque-trust wheels on a full size mid/late 50s car from back in the day (50s)? I don't think you can find one. Not that it matters, but these competition wheels look so out of place on a googie-machine. Just leave it to the muscle car guys.

I think the pics 56D500boy posted say otherwise.
I think his two pics look pretty good.
The black wagon too!!!!!

I don't mind the modern Centerline pic from above..... EXCEPT!!! The rim with those bolt heads. Wish the rim was a clean lip. The perimeter busy bolt look ruins it for me

I chose the American Racing wheels because they are reminiscent of the Halibrands of the 50s. To each their own!
I'll take pics when mocked up, not just for feedback.... but to see if I like them myself!!!! lol

Okay. Looks like it will be me die Pille schlucken.

"Initially, the intent of American Racing was to produce lightweight, durable wheels for race cars; wheels for street cars were not even on the founder's radar when the company was launched. Early offerings included wide rear wheels to accommodate the steadily growing availability of drag-dedicated tires for traction along with narrow, extra-light spindle-mount wheels for the front; a spindle-mount wheel carries its own bearing hub, and is fastened directly to the spindle.

Not surprisingly, the desire for magnesium wheels, or "mags" as they became known, ramped up quickly, and by 1963, American Racing released its first street-targeted wheel, the Torq-Thrust Not long after, A.R.E. came out with an aluminum version, providing a lower cost alternative to consumers who were more interested in the look than the weight savings."



REFERENCE: https://www.hemmings.com/magazine/hmn/2006/10/American-Ingenuity/134...

Never mind. I love the look. Even on a [cough] [spit] Chevy (easier to find photos) :

Okay, they came out in 63, I guessed it. These wheels mimic the european look (yikes) or the englich sports car wheels. These jet age cruisers were never meant to be sports cars. That doesn't mean they are slow, they are fast, yet, these cars all look big an heavy, loaded with massive bumpers and chrome and THAT makes it cool. Trying to make them look like muscle cars is, Imo, inappropriate . Okay, it is a matter of personal taste but these spoke wheels, that show the rusty drums or disks and calipers, are very anti-FL/fifties for sure.

These are non stock custom wheels I like!

Sid: I think we'll have to agree to disagree. Your tastes are your tastes and mine are mine. I was alive and well (12 years old) in 1963 so I can remember that those five spoke wheels were put on anything that moved, fins or no fins, because they looked good.

As for exposing rotors and/drums, that is why caliper (high heat) paint exists. You can actually *ADD* to the look of the car by exposing the brakes, not to mention the fact that the exposure helps with cooling the rotors and/or drums (if there was a need).

Each to their own. (I dislike your chrome Imperial wheels with a passion)

I'm not into chrome Imperial rims either. At all.
And I like the Torque Thrusts or a Halibrand looking wheel on the older cars. Will have to see how they look on my 58 Dodge of course....
No rusty drums for me, Wilwood discs all four corners, but I don't think you will see them unless up close and personal.

Good point, thanks, and by 1963 nothing was more out of date and out of style than a finned car.

I just love the FL-era and its wonderfull creations, cars, buildings, furniture, etc, etc, etc. Everything started to go downhill by 1961. But yes, to each their own.......

I don't know about backspace or bolt circle, but I find these turbine rims nice.

Perhaps too much on a MoPar car, many would know from what car they came

I liked the cragars on my dodge.

Those flat sort of wheel don't do much for me, to be honest, I think they are boring

I also like deep dish (reverse centre) stockies, but painted with dog dishes and trim rings

I believe THESE are the most era correct no??


The Halibrand Sprint pre-dates (1946) all of those mentioned so far, but anything that was readily available in the year the car's model year would be "era correct".

Sand-cast, and usually alloyed with aluminum and zinc, the first Halibrand magnesium wheels appeared in 1946, initially offered to customers in 18-inch diameters for championship race cars. Halibrands would be mounted on the car that won the 1946 Indianapolis 500, the Thorne Engineering Special driven by George Robson, and on every succeeding winner though 1963. Until the Halibrand's widespread adoption, the nearly universal wheel at Indy was a comparatively weak double-laced steel wire rim. The most immediately recognizable Halibrand wheel was the Sprint, known vernacularly as the "Big Window" wheel for the large, kidney-shaped cooling slots in between its structural ribs. Halibrand would also make major inroads as a wheel supplier for hot rodders, in drag racing and on the Bonneville Salt Flats, where its near-indestructibility and relative lack of mass made it all but mandatory. They were also specified for the original Shelby Cobras, the Ford GT-40, and numerous Can-Am sports racers. Briggs Cunningham used Halibrands almost exclusively on his Le Mans racers.

15x5 and 15x7 (reversed) chrome steel wheels using '56 Ford wheel centers and new outer rims, with spider cap centers. Very typical of street and show cars from around 1955 to 1965.

I guess that picture was a little small. Here's another one, showing the wheels from a better angle.

I actually LIKE the Radir wheels.... thought about those too. I bought a set of VN502s. I'll try and see how I like until the car is done. 15x7 and 15x8

Lots of people think that I am running Rallye wheels on my 56 Dodge. (They're 85 Dodge Diplomat cop car wheels)

(Rallyes have 5 slots, not six)

I don't know about backspace or bolt circle, but I find these turbine rims nice.

Perhaps too much on a MoPar car, many would know from what car they came ;)


I too like the turbine wheels. Nice and old school looking. I'm in a toss up considering either turbines or Cragars for mine. I don't see too many cars out there with turbines anymore, so it would be nice to experiment how they look on a car especially a FL'er.
