    I've been looking for a set of wheels for my truck and I'm having no luck on who made them. They were a popular wheel ran in the 1970's and don't know if they were made out of aluminum or magnesium. Every set that I've seen on trucks don't run the center cap and they don't have any markings. The wheels either have rectangular or oval holes. They are not the thin fin western wheel style.

    Any info would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    possibly little known fact: some 71 72 trucks with the feathers and/or eagle packages were advertised wearing aluminum slots, theres a couple GM ads floating around the net showing that
