#1 look quite a bit like ET drag wheels, but not an exact match. Close enough that I'd use 'em on the rear of something, though. B)

#4 - The outside diameter is 16.8 mm which would work out to around a 15" wheel.  They are 4-lug.

#1 - looks like the back wheels from the MPC Street rods of the 70s. 

#2 - looks like the Revell 69 Yenko Camaro or 32 Ford street rod wheels. 

#4 - I'd say MPC Pinto, however they look like they have 8 lugs. But if you say they're 4 lug then I'll take your word for it.

#5 - looks like the caps from the Johan 63 Fury, but that's just a guess.

I zoomed your pic of the #5 wheels. The center cap looks like the Imperial eagle emblem. I checked my '64 Imperial kit, and they look identical to what's in the box.

JC, what does the backside of wheel #2 look like? I took a pic of the wheel I have which I *think* is from the 1/25 Revell '69 Yenko 427 Camaro kit, but the plastic underneath appears to be a much brighter yellow than I recall the original issue being molded in. I still think that's the source, but not as confident now.

I also found a wheel identical to the five-slot, four-lug you posted, along with the (I think) Pinto and/or Mustang II AMT or MPC 14" or 13" wheel I was thinking of (third from left, below), so I can't help much on the I.D.:

#4 are from the MPC "Convoy Chaser" '76 Dart.  Don't ask me why they are eight lug.

#3 are from the AMT '67 (original annual) Impala kits (hardtop and convertible), and the "for '68" "Chevrolet SS 427" which was the '67 Impala with the stock parts deleted and the rear window opening filled in (!).

Casey, #2 looks like the far right wheel in your top photo and the backside looks like what you posted above.

#4 looks like the far left wheel in your top photo.  It has 4-lugs along with 4 exposed bolts holding on the grease cap.
