Original forged aluminum wheels installed
#1
So I finally got the reconditioned wheels I've been working on installed. I think they turned out real nice.

They're B F Goodrich Radial T/A's. 215-60-14's on the front and 225-70-14's on the rear. The wheels are 14x6. Now to list the Magnums for sale...

Thanks for all the compliments everyone!!

Nice! Are they Ansen Slot wheels? They look like they are. I recently bought a set of 4 14x6s Ansen Slots, and I'm in the process of polishing them up. I have spent roughly 2 hours thus far on each whel, and I've got them just about to mirror-like finish. I ordered new caps (I got the black ones) from Don at OMS.

I'm going to put 225x70R14s all the way around, I think.

Yours look great!!

Thanks a lot! These are original FORD wheels that were optional in 1973. Since they were only offered in '73 they can be a little hard to find. I purchased these off ebay for under $200.00 + about 80.00 shipping from Illinois, I think. They came with faded center caps, and a few broken off screws, so I purchased the new center caps. I too, had to work the polisher on each one to get them presentable. I really like the Ansen wheels too.
