Default FIA style rim on 427

Has anyone used FIA style rims on your ERA 427? If so, who did u buy them from and what was the offset you used for the front and the back. I checked with Peter but his source for this style rim is out of stock for now.

Might look through Lippy’s thread below or try to PM him. Not sure he has been on the forum much lately. The FIA wheels on his ERA looked killer but he used the widened rear end assembly and I believe 7” width wheels all aroun.

Spoke with Vintage and they followed up with ERA on the back spacing so the rims have been ordered and are in stock…. Should have them soon.

Old thread, but YES! I love the look as I replaced 17" wheels with these FIAs and they are so much better!

I got my FIA style rims late last year from Bob (Vintage Wheels) who was great to work with… he was very helpful in getting them just right in terms of the offset and such related to my car’s brake configuration. I plan on swapping them once winter goes away.
