Set of wire wheels with rear end available


Darth Vader
After dropping the rear end of two cars in order to mount a set of wire wheels ...we don't really like them. I think I would really prefer the Rostyle (?) wheels or maybe a set of Maglights. So, this weekend we will be swapping it all backout again....anyone need a set of aluminum wire wheels (5)(they need cleaned and painted) I'll even throw in the rear end if you pick em up....

I don't think they're aluminum if they're OE.

I have no idea about these...they are steel, old and need lots of love to clean em up. My husband and I just don't know if it will be worth the effort to remove the tires, clean em up, remount the tires etc. I will try this weekend to get some pics......stay tuned.


If they are steel, not aluminum, then a good cleaning is probably more than enough. You can always spray them with a fresh coat of paint, but it will be rough and obvious it was a quick job. Might be better to just leave them as is and let the next owner blast them to bare metal before painting.

Give me a shout if you go the alloy wheel route, and I can get Superlites for you.
