Basset / Aero wheels

Post by marx3 on Tue May 22, 2018 5:41 pm

I canít decide wether to get chrome wheels for my nascar tribute or cheap out and get powder coated silver wheels. The selection of different back spacing is kinda narrow for chrome wheels too.
The powder coated ones seems to be kinda glossy instead of flat silver / grey.
Does anyone run a pair of gloss silver Basset or Aero wheels?

Thanks. So the finish is pretty glossy, but not shiny like if they had clear coat?

I did Basset wheels on a number of cars. The biggest change essential for these wheels is going to oversized wheel studs and lug nuts. We used studs from mid 60s Lincolns but I am sure Speedway Motors probably has specific stock car studs /nuts for these applications. I like the chrome ones but I bought the black ones and painted them. They are thin to save weight and slight contact will bend them up pretty easily.

Thanks -

Yeah I gotta get a set of 5/8 studs. No biggie.
I love the look too. The typical nascar D-hole wheel, suits an A-body really well. I just wish I could find a picture of a glossy silver as opposed to a chromed one

Here's a silver one fresh from the box. Looks more like clear coated steel instead of silver paint but it isn't chrome. It's about the same shade as Argent Silver rally wheels



This is how they look after a few seasons running around a dirt oval track:
