Those look like the wheels on that 89 I was looking at. Are they Cadillac wheels? The lady said they came form the dealer but they don't look Cadillac to me?

Yes, I can't find the center caps too. I am just going to make inserts that are maroon, and add Cad crests. The ones that are on the C pillars look perfect...

If you have nothing else to do on Sat and Sun, you could sit on ground and polish all of those spokes.

(My dad was a Harley Dealer, and guess who had that job when I was a kid.)

lol... when I picked up my wires, they had been painted with gold spray paint! I spent two days with paint stripper, a pressure washer, then naval jelly with a toothbrush. It was messy...

Hey Wheelman, how much did it run you to have them rechromed? Are those rims tubeless? I've been wanting a set like those for my '77.
...and, what do you do to rechrome? Complete disassembly? Removal of all spokes? Then just rechrome the hoops and the centers? I think the spokes are stainless, right?

Maybe I'll get mine redone, too...
