Older 5 slot alcoa wheels

Was wondering if anybody out there has any of the older alcoa 5 slot 15"x6" wheels that they are willing to part with? Was looking for 4 of them but will be happy to get any to start with. We have been looking for a set for awhile now with no luck😳 I figured since a lot of people are upgrading to 16" wheels that there mite be some available for me to purchase please let me know I would love to have a set for are Overlander then I could take off those Ugly white spoke steel ones that we have.

Yes I have been checking that every day and only see the newer style Alcoa's which would be ok I have sent them an email but no response yet and the other is for local pick up only in California which is too far of a drive for me being from Indiana. Thanks you for looking if you do happen to see or know of any please let me know. Thanks

Those are not the Alcoa's I actually have a set of those but don't like them I should try to sell them as well. The ones I'm looking for are from the 70s and 80s era slotted mags I will try to find a picture to post it thank you for checking it out for me.

Deerfish: Those look like Western Wheels made by North American Aviation, they were popular in the '70s and '80s. Pay close attention to the Maximum load and air pressure ratings stamped on the rims. I experienced rim cracking around the circumference when I upgraded to higher capacity rated tires. It took a long time to find the slow leak because the crack was opening up under the higher pressures used. Discount Tire found it in their test tank.

I have those rims in pic. They are alcoa, they have thicker rim at bead site. I pur. hispec rims alcoa will not fit in box do to heavier construction. The only reason I changed is alcoas need polishing & I'm to lazy to do. Bill

Thanks everybody for the info on the wheels that we are looking for I will be sure to check them over If I do manage to find a set of them we are still looking. Also starting to think about just getting the newer set of Alcoas for it being that they are easer to find.

Wish to keep and may find some one to polish as only one my area only does large truck rims on machine. Our semis used persons that did by hand at rest stops, they were very reasonable, didn't have AS when drivers were on road. Bill
