i am not sure if this is the best forum for this question but here gove anyway;
I am builing a Ford based kit car. It has the Ford 5 X 4.5" stud pattern. I am trying to find a cheap 15" x 8" rim to see what size tire will fit. I think ultimately I will need one with a 6" backspace. I can custom order the wheels but first am scouring junkyards and other sources for a cheap rusty wheel I can use to check the fit. Anyone have one of these rims I can pick up cheaply, or even a loaner.

15 x 8 with a 6 inch back spacing is a tough wheel to come by even if you have it made.
