Re: Any new wheels?

When I bought my car wheels were the first thing that were getting changed. I was a Cragar SS guy way back and then started with different Weld Wheel styles. I just wanted something different on this car and when I saw the Billet Specialties Street Lites I knew those were the ones. I don't really see a change coming even though I have changed wheels on a few of my other cars over the years up to 4 different times.

I just got new wheels, I bought them from a friend. They are Weld but I don't know what they are called.

Car is coming along great, Kim. Sure wish I could squeeze a 12" wheel, under my 70.

Thanks Clint,
That actually isn't my car, it's a 65 in the shop at Schwartz with their chassis that has similar rims on it. My car is currently having mini tubs installed to house those meats.

Is Bonspeed still in business? I ordered some wheels last month after this post, CC charged, no email. I have been calling, no call back. I am running out of time, I may need to call my CC company if I don't hear from them.

Anyone know?

I think Bonspeed is still in business but they have a very poor reputation, now. If it were me, I would cancel the order and go with someone more reputable.
If you need any help, just drop me a note.
