    i was recently going through a junk pile and i ran across a steel wheel that had heart shapes in it......i was not able to get it but i know that it had the ford/mopar 5 on 4 1/2 bolt pattern......i am not sure if it was 14 or 15 inch ......i was told that they were used on vans in the 70s ........has anyone ever seen these or does anyone have more info on these wheels???

    I have Hollander interchange manuals from the 1920s thru the 2000s. If you have a picture I think I can tell you what it is off of if it is an OEM wheel.

    The more I think about these, I am recalling some aftermarket wheels with the hearts. They were like spoke wheels but had hearts instead of the spokes.

    I searched eBay looking for some. Some reason I have the name Superior stuck in my mind as the manufacturer. I don't even know why I think that but when the wheels clicked in the earlier post Superior came up with them. It may be totally wrong. I haven't seen those in years.
