Anyone has a set of OG wire wheels (70 spoke) for sale? Do you know of a place who sells these wheels? Reproductions...... I'm looking for a great looking used set. Thanks

Mine are not for sale, but they do come up on ebay occasionally. They usually go for a pretty penny too, like $1000+ for a decent set.

Just to get your tounge a waging:

There's a reproduction company that's been selling them new on ebay for $999. Keep you eyes out, they'll pop up eventually.

I just mounted up my wider whitewalls on my wires yesterday! They are going to look awesome on the car. Is it spring yet?

Everyone has seen this pic, but I still like it. This is with the skinny whitewalls.

The repos are made in China though, I personally wouldn't buy them. Wheels are one place not to cheap out on quality IMO.

Check out Dayton wire wheels, they do all kinds of custom stuff.

I hadn't even thought of that, good point. My buddy had a cheap set of knock-offs on his '93 brougham. He called me last night to tell me one fell off on sunday night and did about $3000 worth of damage (according to the insurance co.) and they're probably going to total it. I know those aren't knock offs but cheap wheels nonetheless.

Hobbycar.com (http://www.hobbycar.com/1977Cadillac.html) has reproductions of the stock wire wheels.

I have a set of 4 wire spoke wheels and lock nuts from a 1988 brougham.
They aren't perfect but come with a decent set of michelins
mounted and balanced for $500.
cheers, brewinator
