Re: six lug rims whatcha got?

Newfisher,
I have a set of those slots. They are from a 70's Wagoneer IIRC. The tri-bar and tower are Gorilla brand. I have a set of those on my classic car. Soooooo . . . . I want to know, Where did you get the cone cover? Aluminum or steel or stainless?

Re: six lug rims whatcha got?

.
The cone covers are from the 80's and are aluminum. You used to be able to order them through the wheel suppliers like Gorrilla Industries. They stopped appearing in the books a few years ago, maybe someone has some old stock? I found these ata buddies place and tried to find a few more sets to do this to the 5 slots, kind of like a modern day version and take a few sets to the swap meet, but I haven't had any luck finding the cones.

Re: six lug rims whatcha got?

Mixing old school and modern center caps. Here's an idea.

The Chevy Colorado with a factory steel wheel uses a center cap that presses onto the 6 lug nuts. Here's a pic of a Colorado wheel without the cap and a cap picture I stole off of eBay. It might look weird on a slot, but then again it might look good. I have not tried it to see.

Re: six lug rims whatcha got?

New 20s on the front for now, Ill run red rims with caps and rings about half the time, and switch to the newer 20s for an occasional change,

Re: six lug rims whatcha got?

Lugnutz65,
Does the Colorado wheel have the 3.5 dia center hole to fit on the 64-66 trucks?

Re: six lug rims whatcha got?

They will bolt right on to the rear axle. I used 2 of them on the rear of a 66 I had to move. The backspacing is a bit more that the factory C10 wheels so it tucks in a bit more. I have not installed them on the front yet. They might have to much backspacing for the front, but maybe they will be ok.
The Colorado wheels I show are easier to find than the 4X4 rally wheels from the Chevy K10. I think they look pretty nice with the center cap installed. I am strongly considering using a set. I have a lot of options saved in storage. Just haven't had a chance to see what they look like installed because my truck is still in pieces.

Re: six lug rims whatcha got?

I currently have stock steel wheels on my 64. I just found a cheap set of mid 80's 4x4 rallys which look a lot like those Colorados. I don't know if I will use them, but the price was too good to pass up. Someone will want them if I don't. It's good to know what's out there that might fit. Are the Colorado wheels 15 or 16? 15" tires and rims are getting harder to find these days. Everything seems to be 16 and up.

The Colorado wheels are 15". The tire I have on in the photo is a 235/75/15.

I know you responded a while back, but are those plastic? How do you hold them on? Wouldn't the lug nuts crush the plastic when tightened? I'm assuming they are deep enough to clear the front center hub without removing the center emblem? (can't see the fronts well in pic) Thanks.

Correction here about my earlier post. These Colorado wheels have the correct bolt pattern but will NOT bolt on to a factory front drum because they have too much back spacing. You will need spacers to make them work. They bolt onto the back drums just fine.

I would think that they would bolt right on, others can chime in...

Re: six lug rims whatcha got?

Good afternoon. Great looking truck! I also have those Jeep slots, did you have to put longer studs on? What lug nuts are you using? Mine only catch about 3/4 inch of thread. Thanks!
