anyone try the new ones summit and jegs are selling? After buying a set having them blasted and paint plus hoping they will balance makes 200 each sound pretty good. How is the color?

I'm tempted to buy just the new wheels and use the trim rings and caps off the ones on the car now. I have some sort of weird warp or slight bend/shake in one I had put on the rear as to not feel it. I would have to have them powder coated #11 Antique White to match the car, have NO idea what that would cost?

Bent steel wheels can be easily straightened at a shop that has the equipment to do it. There is a body shop here in my small city that does it. You might have a shop near you that does it too.

Before my wheels were stolen out of my storage unit - I had 2 that were warped. I called a shop that specializes in straightening wheels and they wouldn't even look at mine when I said they were the 5 spoke from a 2nd gen Camaro. Said it was near impossible to get right because they warp in the center section and it was a hit or miss in getting them straight. Don't know, you may find a better shop. But before you spend money on straightening, make sure the lug nut holes are in good shape. What really aggravated me was the thieves got the trim rings and caps.

These are the only 15x7 rims, so it’s got of be these.

Those are them they are the new design and they balanced fine. I lined them up next to the originals and they appear identical. Bought the OER wheel paint to match the spare and its pretty close. For the price they seem like a bargain if you don't need the older ones for a correct Resto. I will snap some photos side by side in the next few days.
