Inexpensive Trans-Am style wheels

I'm taking my car to Sebring on April 5th and want to get a spare set of wheels & tires for occasional track use.

Don't want to spend a lot of money...cheap is beautiful.

Anyone know of a good source for either those nascar looking steel wheels or the trans-am style wheels?

Something like either one of these:





What's the bolt pattern on a 1968 Camaro?

How do I measure the backspace on the wheels I have to be sure that something will fit right the first time?

Re: Inexpensive Trans-Am style wheels

Here are two options that come pretty close to the stamped-steel NASCAR look:

http://www.dixieracingsupply.com/pro...productid=1645

The other style is called Minilite and they're much more expensive. Here are some sources:

Here's another option for the "Minilites". Team III has good customer service but I'm sure if the pricing is going to be good for you. http://www.team3wheels.com/ac/ Click on the LTIIIs

Re: Inexpensive Trans-Am style wheels

Team III makes awesome stuff. I know a lot of guys who have them for their Cobra replicas....but the name TeamIII and inexpensive aren't allowed to be used in the same post.

Might know a friend of a friend that has some used racing ones. If not, I'll probably bite the bullet and get the ones from Bassett.
