We now offer a wide variety of newly manufactured Mopar/Ford/AMC, factory steel wheels. We can make cop car, standard steel and stock small bolt pattern wheels to just about any width and backspacing.
We start with an original steel wheel, inspect the stud holes and face finish of the center for damage or wear, and remove the center from the old wheel. We re-use the original centers because they are made with a better, stronger alloy than most current stampings. (It has recently come to light that the reproduction steel OE wheels available on the market are built to accept dog dish or poverty caps are having problems keeping the caps on--they just wont stay on. That's another reason we use original centers.) This helps keep the assembled tolerances much lower than most new wheels. The centers are then re-conditioned to the customers needs, and fitted into a new rim shell. Wheels are then set to the desired backspacing and MIG welded into place, using state-of-the-art equipment and operators. Our welds are full-circle as opposed to the factory's original partial welds. What it boils down to is this: we have the time to spend building your wheels to closer tolerances than most mass manufacturing plants do. Most wheels made now days have +/- .020 to .080 variance, or 'wobble' that is considered acceptable. We get ours as close to zero as possible, but due to manufacturing variances in the new rims, it just cant happen. We can generally get it down to +/- .005.
If you need backspacing less than 4.25", the wheels will need to be 'reversed', meaning that the inside of the wheel will actually be the outer rim...the center is fed into the shell from the opposite direction.
Wheel demand has gone up considerably in the last few months, and availability of rimshells and centers is not stable so plan ahead as best you can--may be a 6-8 week wait on some orders. Call for current pricing and availability.
