    Anyone know of a stock application of a 15" steel wheel in the small pattern? I would like to run black steels on the back with a drag radial. Similar enough to what dad had but I believe his would have been 14". Not much for 14" tire choices other than M&H slick.

    I will check them out. Was there ever a stock application of a 15" with the small pattern?

    OK, so another question. Does it effect the value of a true GSS Norm's car to convert to 5x4.5 brakes and axles enough to worry about changing it or just keep the original stuff around to change back some day?

    I got mine from Wheel Vintiques through Summit racing special order.

    Big problem was they made them wrong twice. Summit customer service made it right and I finally got the right ones.

    Watch your backspacing I just put 215 /70-14 tires on my stock 5.5 x 14 wheels and I was shocked at how little space there was between the upper ball joint and the tire/wheel. This was with the wheel at full droop, I did not check at ride height or full bump

    thanks for the tip. I have a full set of 14" ralley rims for the car, but wanted black steel rims for the back if it was a viable option.

    I have Wheel Vintiques 15X6 in the front and 15X7 in the rear. I believe they also have an 8” and 10” available. Purchased at Summit.

    Wheel Vintiques made my custom 15x10 backs and 15x4 fronts in SBP. Already had aftermarket axles so I just decided to keep SBP.

      It will ultimately cost more money to go to BBP. Then what about the front? Mismatched bolt pattern is up to you. Cheaper just to get custom 15" wheels made.

      Whatever you do, keep the original parts. If it is a documented GSS car from Grand Spaulding Dodge, it may add value if you ever sell it.

      Or.....come to the Mopar Nats and ask the man as Mr. Norm is always there.

      If it's a true Mr. Norms GSS leave it small bolt pattern.

        It is a true, documented GSS. Looking at what the reason to change to BBP would be, I will either just leave the ralleys on or get 2 wheels made. BTW, I would have changed both front and back. This would have gotten me disc brakes too then. Thank you all for chiming in. I love this site.

        You can do what you want, it's your car but if it were me, I would leave it as it is. No different wheels or brake conversion.
