These are my favorite wheels, why is no one making this style anymore?

If I could find new ones I would buy 8 of them right now.

I would guess because there is a pretty good amount of them in existence. I see them around pretty often at swaps and such. the different offset ones are pretty cool.

I trip over 6-7 of those every time I visit my barn. I usually land on a sprintstar.

Because they a very common wheel. Iíve thrown away a crap load of them because I couldnít even GIVE them away.

That being said, donít confuse the common version of that wheel to the TRUE sport wheels. True sport wheels for the sports edition big have a different offset and are wider. Those are sought after by some.

Itís them 5.5 wheels in the two different offset that are hot. Deep all the way around. Or tucked in the front. Reproduction of them or stock slotted wheels in 6-7Ē with friendly offsets would be cool.
