    Hey Everyone!
    I'm looking for a retro chrome 5 spoke wheel for my mod-inspired '64 Dart Conv and would love options. My '64 has disc brakes all around and uses the 4 1/2" bolt pattern. It's a cruiser with tight ratio manual steering, not a street burner, so I'm thinking 6" wide all around will fill the factory well nicely and not be too difficult to turn (as long as you're moving a bit ;-p) .

    Nothing against Cragar SS, they're just too common for my taste and I'd like something different.

    Suggestions?..

        Keystones were popular back then, but finding a set these days might be a little tough.

        Hey Gina, if you check out the wheel & tire post, I'm the last one on there. I just went with the AR torque thrust 15 X 6 all the way around. What ever you go with post so we can check it out. Happy shopping :)

          I agree , Magnum 500's on any A body look great , mainly because they were never offered on them.

          With a 5 on 4" (stock) choices are seriously limited. With 5 on 4 1/2, the world is open, there are hundreds of choices. You could shop at something like jegs or summit for what you like, and then price shop at places like wheelsforless.

            With my Dart wagon to panel wagon conversion I will be using a set of 14x7 or 8’s chrome Magnum 500’s as that is what i have in hand.

            I have no idea of your budget, but.....my three favorite wheels are 1. American racing torque thrust. Several varieties, look good on everything, but VERY common. 2. T70R, a varient of the torque thrust, my very favorite wheel, but completely unobtainable. Originals made for only two years, in the seventies, repoped recently, and then discontinued WAY too soon. So....
            3. American racing 200s, commonly known as "daisies". Different, not seen much, available gray, polished or chrome (at least they were) but definitely NOT inexpensive.
            Check out "two lane blacktop" to see if you like em.

              Looks like your vert is black. Chrome looks great there. Duster2 mentioned Magnums. Another great looking wheel on a black car.
