The best looking wheels I have ever seen

I was blown away by a set of wheels I saw in an Armor All advertisement about 15 years ago. I pulled the ad and dutifully kept it in my dream car file for all those years. As I am now ready to order new wheels for my car I pulled it out and had it on the kitchen table. Big mistake. My wife is a bit of a clean freak and things torn out of magazines are not to be left in her sight.

Needless to say the ad I saved for a decade and a half is now gone.

Does anyone know of a web site that might have an archive of old ads like this?

Alternatively, does anyone know where I could find a whell like this:

The wheels had a chrome rim, black annodized spokes, a chrome spinner, and black annodized bolts on the chrome rim. I would love to duplicate this wheel but it will be tough without a picture to refer to. I have searched the web for hours and cant seem to find anything close.

Can anyone help?

Robert

Re: The best looking wheels I have ever seen

If you remember what magazine it was from, you can try to find archives, or write or email the publisher. Also I'm sure Armor All keeps an archive of old ads if you could write to them with any information you can remember like around the date of the ad.

Re: The best looking wheels I have ever seen

Yep...tried armor all, they gave me the run around. It was kind of frustrating.

I have no idea what magazine it came from or the year. It was just a random car mag...coulda been any one of them.

Re: The best looking wheels I have ever seen

it would be greatly helpful if you could do a nice sketch and post it so we could get an idea of what to search for.

Joe,

Nope...both of those have a single molded pice for the spoke section. these tires had actual spokes.

Trex, got a picture?

Re: The best looking wheels I have ever seen

Are you putting the wire wheels on a camaro or what? Can't say I've ever seen spokes on a camaro.
