On my 59 Meteor, I`d kinda like to keep the steel rim/dogdish hubcap look, but I would really like some wider 15" rims for the rear. Did any of the full size Fords ever come with a 15x7 or 8" wide steel rim, with the 5 on 4 1/2" bolt pattern? I though prehaps a station wagon may, but I have no idea for sure.Thanks

The 70/71 TORINO and MUSTANG came through with either 14x7 or 15x7 (special order) steel wheels that had center caps and trim rings.

You can also get standard wheels widened.

15x7 wheels are hard to find {Boss Mustang} but the 14x7's are plentiful. The problem with 14's are tire size,the limit is 225/70 or 245/60,unless you are willing to go bias ply.

I have a buddy that is a '57 freak. He wanted to do the same thing, have reversed steel wheels that would accept the '57 center caps and shaped trim rings (used to be available from CAL-CUSTOM before they went off-shore) that are available from Early Wheel.

I was working in a FORD parts room (early eighties?) and ordered him the last four in existence as they went obsolete (I believe I had one in stock and the others came from dealers across the country stuck with them). I believe he still has two but his son ruined the other two while racing his '61 STARLINER.

If you get lucky at a swap meet;

D0OZ 1007-B 14 X 7 on a 4 1/2" circle
