Has anybody tried the Vintage Wheel Works Rims . I like the look of the 45 series with the blasted centre and the polished outside . I want to put the 17x 9.5 on my convertable . Also will the 5.5 backspacing work with the rear disc being thicker than a drum or will there still be room on a 69 .

The V45's are a very nice wheel and the company is great to work with. I have the 16x8, 4.5" BS on my lowered 69 with 245/50 on the front and 255/50 on the rear. A very nice wheel.

Mark, take a look at my 68 with the 16x8 V45s with 245/50 and 255/50 tires. They fit great.

Very nice CarlC . I think they will look ok on my Cortez silver rag , I thought the satin centre would go really nice with the Cotez silver .

The wheels come with everything. Be sure to specify the wheel stud size if different than stock.
