Maybe you could have said that it was not the backspacing you were looking for. You insinuate that I was unwilling to help or try and help or others may take it that way and that was not the case.

Do you still have a set of 3 1/2s or are you still looking for those too?

I wasn't insinuating anything, sorry if you mistook it that way.

As I said in my original post, I need the 8.5" rears with 4 7/8" backspacing, and as I replied to your text message your wheels are the shallow backspacing.

For the record, I had no issue with you.

I figured it might be a bit tighter on the 67. These 15 x 10 are tight on my 68 for sure.
Will keep my eyes peeled. Good luck on your search. There are out there. Sometimes you just have to be patient.

I had several guys ask if I have to re-torque lugs from time to time, because most guys running CL wheels do have to re-torque. I do not, but only because I had rings made for both sets that I run. The very early CL wheels used beveled lug nuts (I STILL had rings made for those) but all the later wheels use a shank type lug nut. There is no way that the wheel is exactly centered via those shank nuts without a ring.
I'm also a big proponent of hubcentric rings and have made several sets in the past. The weight of the car should be on the axle register and not the studs. It's amazing how large that gap can be between the axle register and some aftermarket wheel manufacturers!

Unfortunately there's no usable hub for the wheels to register on. These Strange axles have a very shallow hub that's only long enough to register the brake drum.

On the plus side, the axle studs are 1/2".

Still not exactly what you're looking for, but closer. https://www.ebay.com/itm/mickey-thom...8AAOSwhcdakLNC

The Hot Rod Reunion is in Bowling Green KY this weekend. The swap meet is always pretty good, and usually several sets of Centerline wheels. If you are still looking I'll let you know if I find something.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm putting the search on the back burner for now.
