Those factory wheels are hard to find
IT IS CRITICAL your wheels are the correct fit or they will not work. Risky buying used wheels unless they come off the same type/model car that you have. I mentioned in an earlier post that I got my Cragar black powder coated rims through Discount Tires and because they are not chromed they were not expensive and are NEW!! Wouldn't think of any unknown aftermarket knockoffs for a car that we all have poured a ton of money into.
Those chrome slots I posted the pics of are $255 for 15x7 and 265 for 15x8, you specify what back spacing you want
Paid $90 for the rims (brand new from Discount Tires) plus a few bucks for the chrome (steel chrome) center pieces. The is the wheel... and they look fantastic on Road Runners... I get a ton of complements from other guy (and Mopar) guys
Found a set then was disappointed the add was old. They are hard to find those used. Remember to check the back set on them.
Yes those are very sharp. They should really set that blue Bird off. Your bud Big Mo.
Not in Australia mate, came on a bucketload of Valiants from early70's right through to when Chrysler shut up shop in '81.
Found this ad for a set locally
Those look to be aluminum slots made by several different manufacturers over the years. They look close but different.
I know ford had a very similar wheel locally, also called the jelly bean rim. Came on the GTHO's in late 60's to early 70's. But they were definitely an Aussie Valiant factory wheel. See them all the time on super-correct restos at the shows. They might be reproductions of them, as they kind of disappeared for a while. Now, like most old stuff, starting to pop up again from nowhere.
finally found a set in an original ad, check em out at 3:29.
Funny, we are on the other side of the wolrd, but all the Chrysler marketing still has the same vibe.
I like that body style. This one lives here in Ct and has the 6 cylinder Hemi.
Those 245 and 265's came out in everything down here. Seen some rusty farm trucks with the trusty 245 still ticking over. Plenty of triple webber setups floating around. Unfortunately no big blocks ever made the long swim over here.
Too bad about the big block's not making it over to you guy's. We should consider our selves luck here in the US. Bigger was better in the day. 442's. 351's 427's. 426's plus the 440's. Might just add the 472 the caddie had. In the coupe Deville.
finally got the new wheels and tires put on. Center caps were delayed but I will be throwing those on ASAP. I think they turned out ok ♂️
Looks great !
Nice wheels. Can you specify size and brand? Love the way the car stands. Oh paint color is beautiful. Do you mind stating the color?
