It's only money! However, I cannot justify spending $429 per WHEEL at Coker tire. Any alternate sources out there?

Thank you!

Good - and the operative term is "good" - wire wheels aren't cheap. You want the retro look upgrade you're gonna pay big bucks.

Cheap out and I guarantee you'll be one unhappy camper.

Replicas are fine for me. I found a used set of (3) Kelsey Hayes OEM wheels for super cheap-- reason being, the spoke attachment points to the rim barrel were cleanly rusted through! They are expensive scrap metal at this point. Can't believe the guy is trying to sell them, they are truly "junk"

Ebay has a good listing going on.. $750 for replicas (5 wheels total), $300 shipping (OUCH!)

Then, consider the wheels need to be media blasted, re-coated (powder or chrome, you choose), another $100 per wheel =$400

All-in, over $1400.00 for used wheels that *might not be round. Throw in another $100 per wheel for 2-4 of them to be straightened.

Better to buy new.

Thanks for the Dayton dude referral!

What are you going to put those on? Those wires are for 1950s Cadillacs. 1977-79 wheels are different, as are the 80-92 wheels.

I have owned both the wire hubcaps and wire wheels and personally, I always prefered the look of the hubcaps.

Those wheels pictured, like Jay said, are for early Caddies and I don't think they will fit on a car with disc brakes. Correct me if I am wrong.
