    Anybody ever dealt with these guys before?

    Looks like theyve got a fair bit of vintage stuff, im after some old steelies for my RR.

    Im always apprehensive about buying sight unseen, especially when they dont list the price on their website, but these wheels are not easy to come by round these parts.
    If anyone can give me a ballpark figure what these babies are worth, I will reply with copious burnout footage!
    Any other hemi wheels.jpe recommendations also appreciated!

    I
    ve never heard of them, but that doesn't mean anything. I know the "H" wheels that came on the A12 cars are big bucks, can't say on the regular wheels. You after 14" or 15"?

    15's. Whats the difference between the wheels? My Rr was originally 15" steelie with redline tires, which i think is pretty cool.
    But im also a fan of the dog dishes, and the colour-matched wheels.

    In fact, the more i think about it, the more it reminds me of playing with my hot wheels as a kid.

    probably more, but the wheels used on the '69 1/2 A 12 cars have an H stamped on them.
