But in 6 lug <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

These are on my jeep now but I am converting to 6lug - these are 15x10 wheels

They look like old american racing rims. Had a set like that on an MG Midget.

Man I loved those old slot mags. I had some on the back of my first car (74 Plymouth Satellite <IMG SRC="smilies/puke.gif" border="0"> )They're very hard to find now, and I don't know of anyone that still makes them (I wonder why <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">?) If I could find some, I'd probably be runnin them

Stupid question here, but can you actually beadlock aluminum wheels?

If I recall correctly, they ARE still made.

A.R. I belive has them (or something VERY simular) called the "INDY" (or something like that).

I was happy to see them release them as well. I too like that style of rim, that's why I remeber seeing them. I think they are even available in 17 <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> . That would be killer on a hot-rod. RETRO!!

I would love to have your 5-lugs, if they were 15X8, and you wern't in Cali and me In Washington...... not to mention I'm broke right now <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

Champion Beadlock down in Fresno (?) uses AR aluminum rims almost exclusively, or so I am told.

Yep you are. I think they look cool on a 70's vehicle like a scout or blazer or bronco. They would look pretty <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> on a buggy.

Brandon I almost bought some wheels like that but they wouldn't clear the 1/2 ton chevy/wagoneer caliper! It was close and I could have made it work but I didn't buy them cause of that. If you are considering upgrading to a waggy front in the near future you might want to check.

Find Gunracer on this board. He put some on his FJ62, so that'd be 6 lug. I thought he said he bought them new too - I could be wrong.
Cool 62

I like 'em--on the right vehicle. Had a set on my '72 Firebird Formula wanna be. Fortunatly some previous owner has painted red over the OE poop green for me, though.

what can I say they grow on ya - didn't like em at first but I like to be a bit different and that they are..

I think they look good on the jeep - since it is kinda retro <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">


sorry no front yard lawn clean show pics for ya <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> This pic sucks for showing the wheels but I just think they go good with the old round jeep style..

From my searching, best I could tell is that they are MT/Alcoa Challenger wheels in a satin finish.

You were going to Toy axles, right?

Careful... some of these wont fit Toy axles.
Check out the left two. The top one has the large center hole, the bottom one has the small hole that won't fit over a Toy hub (but they'd probably fit Chevy/Waggy). <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

I had a spare that was on an oddball small holed rim like that... I didn't know any better and good thing I finally tried to put it on before I actually needed it. <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">

well 2 of those are 7" wide, but thanks for the advice, I probably would not have thought of it

I like those alcoas! Probably not exactly cheap though! <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">

The older ones were kinda prone to cracking on 4x4's, but I do like 'em though.
