Well I did it! i ordered everything and should have it this weekend.
I ordered 4 Alcoa Classic 8 hole wheels with caps and lugs, 3 Steel wheels for inners and spare (brand new), 7 Firestone transforce 215/85/16 E rated tires, Balance Master for the front and rear wheels, and Balance Masters for the driveshaft.

When I ordered the Balance Masters I had them send me a catologue as I can get them wholesale since I have a store. After I have them and can say if they are good, I will be happy to get them for anyone that is interested at a discounted price.

I am pretty excited as I have wanted to do this for some time now.

Pictures soon!

Richardt

AlansD,
The $130 wheel I spoke of early in the post was for the late madel classic trailer wheel. The factory wants $3oo.62, and Sotwest Wheel wantes $137. enters and lugs are extra. I am sure they have similar savings on the big ones, but I wouldn't think they would be that cheep!

More aluminum to polish! I had a bad experience with 2 sets of Aluminum wheels. Although they saw year round use, the clear coat separation was UGLY. Classic hub caps look great!

OH! I'm not sayin they don't look great, they do, got Chrome Mag wheels on everything I own, well not the '58 Case Front end loader. I just seem to like the hub caps for some odd reason.
