I have a set of four steel Mopar wheels 7x15". They came from my Avanti and worked well with no clearance issues on the front discs or front or rear suspension. They do set out about 1" further from the spindle or axle flange, which caused no problems for me but if your fender to wheel clearance is tight on the outer side, it might give you problems. They are painted to match Stude wheels and accept full wheel covers. I don't know about hub caps. They are 3 years old and have been driven about 3000 miles. Any opinions as to value? Anyone who needs a set let me know what you have to offer. Cash, tools, parts, etc.


EDIT: I wanted to add that where the wheel covers have been put on and removed there are scratches in the paint from the cover clips, not visible when the covers are installed, and that one wheel had been exposed to brake fluid on the brake side (not the outer). The brake fluid damaged area has been repainted. Again not visible from the outside, more of a rust preventing measure.

I have someone who just wants 2. Maybe someone else would like just a pair rather than all 4 ?

Jim,
I bought those new from Pioneer wheel and drum in Minneapolis. They were black. Had them sandblasted and then primered them with good primer. The paint is genuine Stude paint from SASCO. They were used to mount tubeless tires with a more aggressive stance on the R2, but as you know, in back,would rub the outside edge of the fenders with those big meats I had on (in a bump with any passengers), thus the helper coils I installed. From the side, one is hard pressed to say any funny business had occurred.

Thanks for the clarifications, Greg. I figured they had been completely redone as I couldn't identify any color blending and the color was a perfect match, but didn't want to claim that was the case without knowing for sure.
