    Default Wire/Spoke Rims

    I got a set of 4 14" spoke rims from a friend that need to be sand blasted and painted. I wanted to know a good site for purchasing the adapter and knockoffs.

    Are these Dayton style spokes or wire wheel hub caps?

    I would thumb through an issue of Lowrider at your local supermarket to find a good vendor, if that's your main concern.
    Chances are they will have a website... however knockoffs are not as common anymore, it's all about big wheels

    Back in highschool I went to a local custom Tire/Rim shop (not a chain store) and had adapters made, cost a pretty penny since they were custom made but they are more prevalent now for about half the price.
    There are plenty of places online that sell these, I would imagine that most of them get them from the same supplier...
    I wish they were as cheap as they are now back then...

    You know what, I have been contemplating buying a Lowrider magazine for months now and FINALLY, when I stop procrastinating, walgreens no longer has a magazine section in my area, CVS doesnt carry it, and nobody else in the area seems to have it at all. Pisses me off, but I will try harder to find one. Thank you 88HurstOlds. You always come through on my posts.

    Before I forget, do you know the bolt pattern for the rims? Is it 5 3/4?

    I ordered and had the adapter put on and got my spokes rolling. Guy said it was the 15 Hole 5-4.5/4.75/5 part. It worked. Thank you 88!
