  • Moose needs wheels

    SP it's time for new set of wheels for Moose. I'll leave the snow tires on the directions as they are pretty shot at this point.

    I want wheels that look like American Racing pictured. Any suggestions where to find lookalikes?

    If you go to a 5x114.3 the options get allot bigger and prices get better. But I'm guessing you want to stay with the current Mark pattern of 5x108.

    Your best place to get them would be http://thecustomwheelshop.com/index....7urmoun07nsv44 .

      Ditto on Custom Wheel Shop. I'm sure Moose would look great with a set of Coddington Billet Junk yard Dog wheels.

        I can't imagine Moose without stock wheels.

          Seems they don't have much of a choice, I need to stick to the proper diameter, I don't want or need to buy new tires. What range of sizes can I stick to that are replacements for the 10 spokes?

              Sure but I can't seem to find anyone who sells them for the Mark VIII

                Found 'em. I think Moose will like his new spats. American Racing Torq Thrust Anthracite. Not a bad price at 130 each.

                They were not easy to find, I had to call several distributors before I could find them. Seems anthracite and black are rare but available but chrome or polished are nearly impossible.

                        Summer tires back on with the new rims for Moose! I really like the new look.

                          my old bullitts. I hated them....sold them the day after I bought the car/snapped this photo....traded them actually, for a mint set of Octastars with brand new rubber.

                          offset is key....these bolted up, but stood out like wagon wheels on a stage coach.

                            This is an old thread, but did you ever put up a picture with the new wheels?
