Question Slotted chrome reverse wheels... where did they go?

Okay... so I am an old man with a slightly diverse and sometimes sick (albeit a complete gentleman) outlook on life. And, it seems that I have a problem!

I have always used slotted chrome reverse wheels on all of my cars where they wouldn't look silly. I have had 2 Chevelles, 2 TransAms, and a Mustang... amongst others... and I have always liked the look of this type of wheel.

Nowadays, however, I cannot find any. Don't want chrome... ugh, so glad that is a thing of the past. But want today's version of the slotted reverse wheels.

I have a '06 Cruiser and it demands individuality... or at least I do. SO many silver ones on the road....

DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANYPLACE I COULD FIND SOME? I NEED HELP!!

THanks all for any help you can give!!

Welcome to the forums Dantzr. Sadly the reverse style wheels of the past have went the way of the dodo bird. With the front wheel drive cars and the different offsets it has created a different style of wheel. I also had several musclecars and some had the reverse chrome wheels, I also like the old school look. I ended up finding a wheel with some retro styling but agree a nice set of chrome reverse would look good.....

Thanks, War Eagle! Deep down inside, after all of the looking I have done, after all of the wheel dealers telling me over and over again... I should have come to the realization that they will be found only in my mind.

I appreciate your comeback. I think the inevitable has sunk in now.... after hearing from another owner of a Cruze.

Oh well... hmmmm... wonder if Cragar makes the Mag Wheels like they used to? Just kidding. Just haveta go and find me some new tires and wheels to love.
