Just finished these for a chopped 32 three window . A close friend . They still need a crowned surface on the O. D. and valve stems . Size is 16" x12" wheel and 12" x 31" tire .

Thanks for looking in , Jeff .

Just was curious and dipped a wheel in alodine solution . I then polished the outer part and added a center cover ala Real Wheels . And I did get some valve stems made . Think only one set will get this look . 

Thanks for looking Jeff .
