Default Would like some info on solid wheels and chrome hub caps

Hi,

I have a 2002 base Cruiser with stock 15" wheels . I have seen a pic or two of Cruisers with what looks like a deep painted steel wheel with plain domed and chromed hub caps. Where could I get more information on wheels and caps like I described ? The look is simple yet retro.

Thanks

Don

If you were close to Rogers, Arkansas you can have this set with hubcaps for $100.

Rims are 15"x6.5". Bolt pattern is 5x100mm.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, that is the look I want however I would prefer painted wheels with the chrome caps. Not sure I want to deal with rusted chrome wheels however.

Cheers

Don

hi, I have been running 15" steel wheels with full moon hubcaps for two years and have no trouble with the brakes. I have a base 2005 pt and did change to the turbo calipers and rotors. jim hoysa

For a deal like this i could deal with a little rust and you can always paint chrome wheels

as far as the heat not a problem unless you plan to run a Nascar circut the get plenty of air

I got mine from Summit Racing. Free shipping and great customer service when I had to return one that was out of balance.

They are starting to rust, though. I'm thinking about a drive to Rogers, AR. That looks like a good deal!

Whoops ! Double post. See below.
