Body painted Steel wheels
 
Anyone running Body color painted steel wheels with poverty caps on their 60s impala?

I think I may....

Some ideas...

Currently have some aluminum 17" wheels I'm not a fan of these. I think the painted wheel with the cap looks cool.

I do like the look of a painted steel wheel and a dog-dish cap. I almost did do that but sort of at the last minute went with some 17" Vintage Wheel Works with that late 60's bead-blasted Torque Thrust look.

If the car was ordered with full wheel covers or any of the optional wheel covers the rims were black, poverty covers wheels were body color.

Anyone running body colored steel wheels in a 15x7 and 15x8 setup?

Big Dave 11-11-2019 12:38 PM

Not to many steel wheels in 15x8 outside of a Rally wheel.

Further reading some of the reviews the Wheel Vintiques are made in the USA and sound like they are well made for the money.

So I bought 2 of the Steel 15x8 wheels (paint them later) and a Milestar Streetsteel ($102 shipped) 245-60R15 tire.

Had it mounted and I bolted it on to check fitment to see if I want them on all 4 corners.. not sure I want staggered

It's about 26" tall and about 9.5" wide. No issues fitting on my 66 Impala but I may want a tire that's a little wider.

other brand 255/60s have around the same spec...


I wonder if this will fit in the front?

Man...those are cool !!

https://i.imgur.com/mCAMo6p.jpg now to choose a hubcap... It think I'm leaning toward the Camaro smooth style

BA. 01-05-2020 03:28 PM

Love the painted look, and for me, that bottom right cap.

brickwhite 03-24-2020 11:41 AM

I ended up with 15x8 (4.25"bs) on all 4 with a MILESTAR STREETSTEEL P245/60R15 tire,at $102 each.

I know they are not BFGs or Coopers, but for the price I thought I try them out. I like the look of the tread pattern.

Tire looks great. I'm just curious where they're made.

brickwhite 06-26-2020 04:27 PM

They are cheap Taiwanese made.
