Re: Calling All Steelies - Caps and Otherwise...

Just changed to the white steelies. Still dig the chrome/whitewall combo but wanted to make a change. Now I need a white bumper and maybe paint the top half of the cab white.

My first post on this forum. Here's mine.. not steel though, they're aluminum Coy C-33 smoothies. 18"x7" up front, 18"x9.5" in the rear. I added my own stripe to the lips.

Re: Calling All Steelies - Caps and Otherwise...

Here's mine. I just recently lost one of my original hub caps while driving on the highway. Never could find it, so I had to resort to an aftermarket cap. The aftermarket caps are pretty nice.

Re: Calling All Steelies - Caps and Otherwise...

My old '66. Stocks up front, spaced out 1.5" to fill out the fenderwell and clear the calipers, and really hard to find vintage aftermarket chrome reverse 8" wheels with 3 nub/rectangle slot centers in the back. They're different from Blazer 8" wheels, the drop center of the rim starts a lot farther back so the lip looks deeper. 215/75 and 235/75 tires.








With caps.





Dad's old '66 on stockers.







The '65 I restored on stockers.

Did those Wheel Vintiques have the nubs for mounting the caps? If not how did you mount them?

I have some aftermarket steelies of unknown origin without nubs. Would love to mount some caps....
