I got these awhile back in a lot of parts....They have the center caps and valve stems on them, and don't seem to have been painted, but not sure...I have hung on to them for a future build, but was wondering if anyone knew what kit they were from originally...all the other parts I got were older parts 60s 70s and 80s....just thought Id see if anyone here might know...thanks

They look like the mag wheels from the Revell 32 Ford series

I was thinking they were going to be from a kit like that...there is no wheel-back to these, they slip right onto the axle. i just haven't seen any this detailed in any kits I have bought .....figured they were made back when they put alot of detail in kits lol

I believe they may be from the 68' Bullitt kit or diecast kit.

There were many many kits that had various versions of 5-spoke Americans. Many many many. I've probably got at least 25 different sets of similar wheels.
