    No, never seen/heard of them before. Do you have pics or a link? They sound interesting.

    There are some w/ the saftybead out there. Don't remember the size but some of the old narrow Chevy 16.5s had it. If Titanic is around I think he knows more about them.

    They look like StockChevy wheels.The centers are thicker than old style rallys.Got'em at Yard sale in FLA couple years ago.Was going to use centers to make 8 lug 15s,but,rim od was larger.Stock 16s will fit right into 15in rallys.Want 2 more to have fitted with beadlocks. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gifer /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
