Would like to replace my split rims
I recently replaced my stock wheels with new alloys. The wheel specifications that I utilized were as follows:
15” X 6”
Six Lug on 5.5” centers
4.25” Center Bore
2,600 pound minimum load carrying rating
Must be able to handle 65 psi inflation or greater.
I know that the possibility of utilizing less expensive rims obtained from an automotive salvage yard, it is very difficult to find a set of rims that conform to all six of the criteria. You can find new wheels with the correct specifications at most tire retailers as well as trailer repair centers. The cost of a new wheel is not that great considering its importance to safety and durability.
Good luck with your '64!
