Re: steel wheels

Like turkey said quality is not an issue.. 15x7 12 series smoothies bare medal and I had them powder coated..(Wheels Vintique) but buy them at Summit!! A whole lot cheaper in cost and shipping... I saved close to $150.00 that route...

Re: steel wheels

Rally America makes smoothies in custom offsets. Real good prices too. Have done business with them several times over the past 5 or 6 years. Good people to work with. no charge for custom offsets.

Re: steel wheels

Thanks for all the kind words. The wheels are Wheels Vintique series 12 smoothies. The front are 15x7 with a 4"back space. The rears are 15x10 with a 4" back space. I am running a 4x4 S10 rearend which is narrower than the factory by about 3". The rear wheels just clear the fenders, I had to bend the wheel well lip in to clear.


The color is antique white from Sherwin Williams straight out of the rattle can.

I ordered the wheels from summit racing and they come primered gray, great service, fast, and free shipping.

The wheel centers are 3.2 inches.

The center caps are 52 chevy from wheels vintique also from summit racing

Re: steel wheels

I actually like their Series 62 steel wheel better.
And they will take a dogdish hubcap.

The Series 64 wheel is chrome,... like the old school chrome reverse wheels.

Re: steel wheels

Lowlife I agree with you on the series 62 wheels, but I was told NO six lug options in that series... which sucks. I've kinda been on a rant of sorts here lately at the lack off decent six lug wheel options. If you look at the 17" summit torq thrust, they stay back ordered all the time. So I think there is enough demand for six lug wheels with some backspace options. Anyway rant over. Thanks
