      Ok so good news and bad.

      Good news first- picked up the wheels and caps for 120 (gave him 60 for wheels because I'm to lazy to get change before going).

      Good news- love the look of these wheels and caps best .

      Bad news- I'm an idiot and these aren't cop car wheels, just regular steel wheels. (Luckily I like them better than cop wheels)

        Skinny, between 6-7in. I'm not home right now, I'll measure when I get back. But if I remember correctly from yesterday they were closer to 6

        I think the Police wheels are a -6mm or ~4.25" back spacing.

        That is pretty funny! When I was picking my wheels for my 71 Barracuda, I thought about the Ford wheel like the Cobras had. They look really good. I ended up going with minilites instead.

                  My1970 dart has 15x7 steelies with 255/60/15 the back, they would go well with the 15x5 1/2 you have on the front. I got them from Wheel Vintiqes, Oh and they are 5 1/4 back space. Jeff DSCN0352.JPG

                    How hard are original 15x7s to find? (Besides new)

                    Also did they come with those redlines? They look horrible with the blue, you should send them to me I'll pm my address right over :rofl:

                    I don't know how hard it is to find original rims. Yes I know the blue sucks, I'm going to paint it Barbie pink soon, LOL. I had the red lines, they don't come with the rims.

                      My daughter would love for me to paint the dart pink. Maybe for the next project we will do pink, unless my son wants a different color.
