Re: Slot lovers unite!

I had a new pair of 17x8 ansens slots and couldnt find any 17s or 15s so i got pissed and sent them back. Oh they let me order them but it went on for months as ''backordered''.. i did a lot of checking and found out that they had sold American Racing to another Co. and were out of production .


all I have now is a single 15x7 for a spare.


I'll always be on the lookout for some nice new ones but will take a nice older set too. 15x7 and 15x8

Re: Slot lovers unite!

Well, I finally found a set. Actually it was via Ebay but the seller was local. Went out to his place tonight and man, I was in slot mag heaven. At one point he had over 200 wheels. All different sizes, widths, brands, etc. He said that 5 on 5 are the hardest lug pattern to buy and this is the first time in 10 years he has started selling his 5 on 5 patterns.

He had three different sets, two full sets of 15x8.5 and one set of 15x7/15x8.5 combo.

Well, the mixed width set came home with me. I was thinking the same size all around but I had issues with 8.5 width rubbing on my last truck. I decided to play it safe and use 15x7 for the front.

I am so stoked!!!

Re: Slot lovers unite!

I have a full set (4) of 6 lug slots that my dad will be bringing out to me next week. They still have the original center caps and have been in storage for the past 30 years. They were on our '58 stepside Apache back in the 70's. I will post pics as soon as I get them.

Yep, a lot more for sale. He has these listed on Ebay but you can contact him thru Ebay to see what else he has.

I have read good things about this guy but I always hate when prices are listed and you have to contact them. Makes me feel like the price will be different depending on his mood that day.

Re: Slot lovers unite!

The newstalgia wheel looks a lot more like the old ones than the ARE type. If one wants the classic look those are the way to go.

Re: Slot lovers unite!

This is a picture of my truck in 1970 with original Ansen Sprint Slots . They are centifigugal cast , then cut with a lathe. From Gardenia California. The Horse trailer has the original hub caps. Old Skool is the way to go if you want to keep it real. I still love the lowered look with the Coys though...
Either way you can't go wrong. It is like putting a nice set of earrings on an already Beautiful Woman.

Thanks for the link, that is exactly what I'm looking for! My Jimmy has the front end sitting wider than the rear and if I use 8.5's on the front and 10's on the rear it should level the width problem out. Gotta check the BS, 3 1/2" are what these are listed at

Wierd how the center hole is so much bigger then needed to be. It's like 4 1/4" and you only need 3 3/4"

Cool, hope they work for ya. The guy seemed REALLY cool to deal with and I would buy from him again without question.

As for the center hole, many different 4x4 axles have been used, that use the 6 on 5.5 pattern. Not all of them use the same size center hole because of different parts used in the hub assembly. It was easier to make one size bore, the largest needed by any axle and all the other ones would work. It is not like they are using the bore for hub centric use. They are lug centric so the bore can be bigger. Hope that made sense.

Also, if the BS might not be correct on that set, contact him as I know he has a bunch of other ones not listed yet.

Looks like there are a couple companies making these again. Retro is in. Better than 24" wheels IMO.

Re: Slot lovers unite!

I'm always looking on CL for a set of slots or some other vintage wheels. They just look right on these trucks.

OK, yes that does make perfectly good sense. Just thought the distance between the lug hole and center hole looked small. Do you have a phone number or something to contact him at?

Hey, Chevy Mike...thanks for linking me to this guy. Just traded my 10" wheels for the set on Ebay! This board rocks for info. that is unobtainable, would never have been able to make a deal without it. Thanks guys

Great!!! Glad to help out. I just talked to him about giving out his number and it was fine with him. If anyone needs it, PM me for it. I won't post it in the open thread for privacy reasons.
