Hi Tex. I got my center section repiard now. I might be able to use your outer rim on my wheel. Mine is bent a bit. Can you give me dimensions of the wheel and rim please?

Can these compomotive wheel centers have five lug holes added in the blank spaces? If so who would do that please?

If it can be done, any competent machine shop should be able to do it for you, although you might gawk at the price.

The best thing to do would be to make a drawing, even a hand drawing, of exactly what you want so there is no confusion. If you need a few shops, I might be able to get you a few.

Thanks Joy!

Upon further inspection the place on the front which looks like a good place to drill additional holes is a void behind, so would not work for me.

Thanks for your thoughts!

Default Compomotive Rims

Are these rims still available as I need 2 - 17" rims, one at @ 8' wide for the front and then the rear at @ 10" wide. I am utilizing Mustang spindles on my current cobra so I believe the lug spacing specs should match. If they are still available, please let me know and I will get the actual measurements and backspacing specs that I will be needing to replace and see if we have a possible match.

Thanks

Just discovered your post. Yes, I still have the 17” Compomotive HB wheels. Widths are 8 and 10 and are Ford bolt pattern. The wheels are in like new condition.

If anyone buying your wheels does not need/want the slip-on spinners,
I am open to purchase them. Thanks.

Unfortunately, the spinners for these wheels have been sold. I actually had two complete sets of Compomotive spinners. Sold both sets a while back and could sell several more sets if I had them.

I will be needing a 10" wheel with a 6" backspacing and then a 9" wheel with a 5.5" backspacing. Both 17" lug style wheels with the Ford 4.5 bolt pattern.

If you could please confirm if the two rims you have would magically have these specs and let me know, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
