    What steels

    I have bought some 15x4 minx steels for the front of my pop project and I'm now on the lookout for some skinny (5" is good) 16's for the rear. I intend to run deep dish moon discs so style is'nt important. I have a 5 stud ford 8" axle which I presume is 4.5 pcd. I was thinking Taxi wheels but now know they are 5" pcd and would involve machining. What are my options?
    I guess this is also a wanted Ad if anyone has anything suitable.
    Thanks
    Dave Mc

    i think the 16" truck rims are 8 stud heavy duty items (i tried to find some 5 stud 16s for the front of my camper (i converted from 8 stud to 5stud) but couldnt find any. as far as i know all the 5 stud stock yank steels are either 14" or 15". dodge (after 1971) and ford are the same stud pattern.

    Dave , try Billadeau for truck wheels. The D1oo I had was 5 stud wheels and were deffinateley 16 inch. Iam pretty sure they are what you are looking for.

    Dave , how about some pics of the Pop ?
