I really like the look of the empi 5 spoke wheels however I am looking for 15x8 and a smaller 15" matching rim for my wannabe Manx buggy. I have seen the DWT rims and the empi star but was hoping to find a wheel closer to the 5 spoke.
Any advice on where to look would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

My bolt pattern is 5x205...I am not entirely against using an adapter plate.

If you're not against an adapter or even using drilled drums (almost as cheap), then you could purchase any torque thrust look alike. I run Coys C5 wheels.

Thank you very much. I like the wheels and I will be ordering some. What is your preference between adapters vs drilled drums?

Drums for sure. You might be stuck with adapters though. If you're working on a 66 or 67, I think you can get drums with Chevy or Ford pattern. Older than that and you'll probably have to do adapters.

I purchased torq thrust D wheels. I am using adapters. There was a me tion that older than 67 adapters are the only choice. I have seen blank drums...I presume to be drilled as I like. I live in so cal, where do you recommend to get them drilled?

Thanks for the advice. I am looking forward to my new wheels.
Cheers
