    Most, if not all of the 70-83s Stutzes had wires.
    Here's a friends car in Indy.

    I suppose it could have been from one of the very early or prototype cars in the late 60s...but few were made so the odds are against it.

    No way that was on a contemporary Avanti. The Blackhawk was based on a Pontiac Grand Prix platform...wrong bolt circle to fit an Avanti, at least through 1985. If the wheel happened to be on a later, Monte Carlo based Avanti...possible, but wouldn't have been intended as such. It would have simply been a wheel some owner installed.

    started a topic Avanti wheel? Don't think so.

    Avanti wheel? Don't think so.

    Hi All,

    Visited a friend today and he showed me an early 70s Firestone wheel display he purchased at a "junk" sale. It's a Firestone LXX and there's a web site http://www.madle.org/elxx.htm that goes into real detail. My friend said the wheel was used on the Stutz and the Avanti. I didn't find any connection to Avanti but thought some of you might know. Fun history on the wheel and worth reading.
