the only 15X8 steel wheels i know of were the rally's on 70's Corvettes, and the 80's/early 90's pickups.
the pickup wheels won't work because they are a 5X5 bolt pattern, and the dog dishes won't work on them or the Vette wheels anyways.

Bill,
That would be me. :waving:
I have a pair of 15x8" and a pair of 15x7" plain steel wheels that accept dog dish caps on order thru Jegs from Wheel Vintiques for my '66 wagon.
Both wheels are offered in a 4 1/4" BS and have been on order for nearly a month.
Item 939-62-5834044 is the 8" wheel and cost about $70 ea.
Item 939-62-5734044 is the 7"...cost $67 ea.
