    Re: Where do I find wheels.....

    I'm trying to remember what the general lee's wheels look like.... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I believe I remember hem to be "hurricane" style wheels. I'm not even sure they sell them anymore.

    someone had some on here, I think they were thinking of selling... skigirl? Maybe someone else remembers.. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Actually, I guess those are not the ones I was thinking of. Hurricanes have a tighter groove pattern. Here is the General

    I think you might be right. Thanks for trying.

    I also like Cybersniper's. Maybe I'll send some PM's.

    People around here refer to them as a "Turbine" wheel. There is a 4wd van for sale not far from here with them! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Not sure if they are 6 or 8 lug though...

    They'd be 6 lug.

    I've googled for turbine wheels and hurricane wheels, but neither came up with much.

    I have a set of 6 lugs like that. I don't think that you can buy them new anymore... they quit making them a long time ago.
