Oh no!!! The K5 wheels I’ve been hoarding have just plummeted in value!!! Ha. There’s a ton of chatter on the 67-72 side of the forum about these, to include the vendor. Reviews will be coming in soon. I think this is a great idea and long overdue, despite what it does to my 401K of steel wheels.

No. I just bought a set of smoothies from Summit racing a couple weeks back. Wish I knew about these OE wheels.

Don't get to worried-

The center hole is 2.75" and the originals are 3.5". They may work on front disc conversions, but will not fit on a rear axle.
The backspacing is 4.25" vs the Military wheels which are 3.875". For those with drop spindles the increased backspacing will not help at all with clearance to the LCA. The Military wheels require LCA trimming as it is.
They're 7" wide, not 8".

I'm curious as to what the 'powder coated primer finish' is. Most powder coat is basically a plastic coating applied to metal. Automotive paint is not intended to be applied over plastic. In fact PPG will not warranty their products if applied over powder coat.

If the center hole is only 2.75 then the picture is not of the wheel they are selling. Also the 4 1/4" back spacing would be a no go on my 66. The 4" back spacing wheels on my 66 took a lot of trimming to get to work. Would not feel comfortable trying to make room for a 1/4" more. Now this is with 2 1/2" drop spindles so with stock height applications they would be OK.

I was just notified that the wheel specs on my website were incorrect. The center hole specs were wrong (they were specs for a smaller bolt pattern). And a couple had the backspacing listed wrong. Sorry for the confusion. All the specs have been corrected. Center hole for the 5 lug truck pattern is 3.125 and for the 6 lug pattern is 4.25" Backspace was also corrected to 4.125" for the 15x8's.
