Default Rim information wanted

What kind of rims are these and on which vehicles were they mounted?

Hi Alfredo, I just sent you a Email I've seen old Shelby wheel's (70's era) like these before, but never with a spline drive? Are they a true spline drive or a fabrication from 4-5 bolt wheel? Shelby made many garden variety (Read: Cheaper) wheel's back in the 70's-80's, many copied from higher end wheel's. Send me photo's of the back side, K? Width? Dia? Cheers Tom. I had a copied set of American Racing Libre's (Shelby Viper) for my Z-car, they turned out to be much rarer then the true American Racing wheel's.

Shelby Wheel was a customer of mine in the late 70s and I visited the plant on San Fernando Rd in Los Angeles on a number of occasions. They offered me a smokin' deal on a set of those in 5 lug which I politely passed on for a variety of reasons. To the best of my recollection everything they were making at that time was for aftermarket applications.
Do you have the other components as well or just the wheels?
Frank

Hi Frank

Just the wheels, but I don't own them.
I only got the pictures

Alfredo, I found many of those styled wheel's again from the 70's era. Most common was from the Western Wheel Co. their style was called the Turbine. https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-15x...wAAOSwj3xbL-2r

Was thinking Alf, what I saw those on in the day. Mustang's, Camaro's, Roadrunner's, GtX's, pretty much the muscle cars of late 60's early 70's. They usually had "Hi-Jackers" shocks, and white painted rear-ends, (The rear end was raised up high enough to see the rear end thus, the white paint) It was a American fad, to get the rear as high as you could, never quite figured out why you would do that. Many of my hot-rod friends ended up backward in the ditch with that set-up They tried catching me on the back roads, with my lowered, Koni shocked, sway-bared, little 4-cly Volvo 142S Cheers Tom.
