Chrome Five Spoke Wheels


6 posts in this topic

Posted

I'm looking for some five spoke type wheels in chrome for my AMT 1971 Thunderbird. The wheels that this model uses have the hub molded into the wheel for the metal axle to fit into. Need the inner rims as well.

Don't have any to part with, but that wheel can also be found in the AMT 55 Vette

Are you looking for another set of the chrome 5 spokes from the 71 T Bird or just any old set of chrome 5 spokes? Keep in mind chrome 5 spokes came in many variations and kits, so some more specifics might be needed. If you have a picture, that would definitely help (if it's not the one already posted).

Mike, I'm looking for wheels with the same way to be assembled to the axle, but a different five spoke. I'm not a fan of the little bit between the spokes that has the two little screws in them, they look like something for a 4x4 and are not in keeping with what I plan for the car. I'd even go with wire wheels over what is in the kit, but what I want is something like a set of Astros, S/S, or even Keystones.

These wheel backs from Scenes Unlimited could solve the problem of mounting and allow you choice of any wheel that fit the tires. I think that kit has axles that are larger than the normal wire axle. If so, maybe the wheel backs could be drilled out large enough.

Scenes Unlimited has some great stuff as I'll be using their products on one of my current builds.
