Hey Folks!Steve "The Desertrat"Here.Hope that someone can help with feedback. My Wife and I are wanting to go to 14" 4 lug steel wheels on our 65' 6cyl Coupe.Main reason is we need more tire selections and also want to run the 14" Spoked Hubcaps w/spinners.Can any one out there help with source? Also backspace dimensions for same?
Would Ford Dealers carry such an item? Thanks to all. Steve

I'm not sure the backspacing, but if you were to contact a local salvage yard or wheel/hubcap shop (there's bazzilions of them in SoCal), you could probably pick up a set of four for around $100, stamped steel wheels only, that is. The hubcaps are available through NPD or Mustangs Plus, links at the top of this page

For back spacing, do a search right here in M&M. We have had several threads about it. Both in this forum and in the racing forum.

Hey Dave

If I understood Mr. Rat correctly, I think he's interested in stocker stamped steel 14x5's that he could put some cool vintage hubcaps on... I haven't seen b/s measurements on stockers, or have I been sleeping in class again? Lots of b/s specs on aftermarket wheels though

A wheel with 5 to 7" width and 3 to 4" backspacing will fit.

Hey Steve,
If I'm not mistaken there is a wrecking yard in Medford that caters to older cars. I'm not sure of the name but they should be able to locate some stock wheels for you. If not, give me a shout and I can give you the name of a couple of places up here in Portland that I know will have the rims.

They should have what you want. Elsewise its scrounging around salvage yards looking for a set meeting your specifications.

Any of the 66-69 Mustang 4-lug rims should work fine along with Falcons. You might be able to get them from someone for next to nothing. I couldn't give a set away and they ended up in the trash!
