plain jane 15 by 8 wheels

I know they were never available originally, but I'd like to get 15 by 8 inch wheels, the plain jane style that you can install factory poverty caps on. I've checked on wheelvintiques website and stockton wheels, and can't find anything. Any ideas ?

Re: plain jane 15 by 8 wheels

If you have a local wheel shop, that can take a 15x7 wheel and extend it to 8". There is a shop in south Jersey that will do that for $90 per wheel.

There are places that will make custom width wheels or offsets, I would Google it, I have seen displays in the past at the Carlisle/E-town Events.

Re: plain jane 15 by 8 wheels

No problem. I bought them in 14x7 from Summit and they are very close to my original 14x7 XT wheels.
