    Mine are CK or something like that , "Smartin" owns the car now with the wheels on it actually. And I should have said "had" as the car was sold, I do have two extra ones somewhere but I think they were slightly different offset IE lip wasn't as deep and that's why I never used them, was back in 02/03 when I was putting them together. The ones you posted are the correct ones just not sure how many offset variations they were

    I like 15x8’s our back with drag radials and 15x7 up front with 23560’s. Have almost NOS poverty cap s ready to go on. Like this look for fall though.

    The front ‘s came off a late 70’s early 80’s full size. The rears were custom made by Wheel Vintiques.

    Just re-read this thread 2 years later. I looked at the 71 assembly manual to see what color a 14" steelie would be on a bamboo cream car. They're supposed to be black. But what I found interesting was that Cortez gold, sandpiper beige and bittersweet mist also got black wheels according to the assembly manual

    According to my 72 assembly manual, 1972 Silver Mist gets black wheels. In looking at the 72 chart, flame orange, heritage green and Sunburst yellow also got black wheels for some reason

    I got a set of those same centers on eBay some months ago.
    I read somewhere someone is making aluminum wheels that work with poverty look.
    Hope they are priced reasonable.

    You can use Weld DragLites and my adapters. Widely used wheels that can often be found used at a reasonable cost. My adapters are $225 per set.

    Way cool. Thank you for the info.
    I have a full set of stars too bad.
    Will keep this in mind.

    They work with the ProStars also!! ProStars and DragLites have the same flat center section where the lug nuts are and the same angle as they taper away from the flat area. It's just that the 5 openings in the ProStar wheels are just a bit larger in diameter and you can start to see them past the hub cap. The DragLites have the holes which are covered just a little better by the hub caps. If you have the ProStars now, just set a hub cap over the center and see if they cover the openings to your satisfaction. If they do, you'll be good to go!!
