Yeah, that looks pretty cool (as far as vans go)! Where can I get those wheels for my Dart?!?!?
Rims are RS Watanabes. Vans are referred to Dajiban. more boxes to see: http://omgpancakes.wordpress.com/2010/01/12/dajiban/
Ahh... so Vans like this are "a thing." I thought they looked like Wantanabe wheels but as far as I knew, those were always 4-lug...are they converting the hubs on those vans or what?
There is a sweet original black Streetvan in Toronto(Etobicoke) I'll see if I can find some pictures.
As per that blog: "Yeah, those are RS Watanabes! Arent these vans some weird lug pattern? I wonder where they found the wheels for such a crazy lug pattern. My guess is re-drilled wheels."
I think they are 5 bolt 5 inch circle. The wheels look like british minilites, or styled like them. I think that look would be cool on a 77 dodge tradesman, was never a fan of the las gen ramvan nose and tail. Its funny tho i think the dash is the same from 78 all the way to the last of this bodystyle., Always thought the sprinters were ugly, but they look better than the fiatvans we have now.
I have been googling around for a set of 5-lug RS Wantanabes and no luck so far, regardless of bolt-circle. I know they're pricey but if a 15x9/4.5" bolt circle set was available, I'd seriously consider them. You're right about the Minilites they do look similar...I have never seen them in a dark finish like that though. Usually, they have painted spokes and polished lips which look nice.
Autoblog has a great article on these things...and more than ever, I want a set of those wheels. http://www.autoblog.com/2015/07/14/japan-dodge-ram-van-racing-video/
the wheels look like ETs. http://www.etmags.com/
They do...I'm pretty certain that there forged Wantanabe wheels though since this is Japan The ET wheels look great but they're not available in 15" and they're really expensive for a cast wheel. http://www.etmags.com/lt_iii.html
I thought maybe Rota rb wheels, but the rota are 4 bolt
Rock magnet! I just replaced one of the long side windows in my 1 ton Plymouth...
Guys, just daydreaming again...didn't want to start a new thread. As you can see above, there was some good feedback on the wheels on these vans. The fact that they don't have the 5x4.5 bolt pattern ruined my day. Anyone ever attempt to get this style of wheel on their A-Body? IIRC, Panasports are available in custom offsets/bolt patterns, no?
There is a member here that has a set of wheels very much the same on his 1968 Barracuda. I think he is from California and road races the car. Not sure which bolt pattern he runs though. Bobby
Really? If you can remember who that might be, that would be a great help!
Just found him. He goes by autoxcuda. Hope this helps. Bobby
Autoxcuda i believe has minilites on his cuda autocrosser
