Steel Wheels heads up
Posted by smhardesty on Friday, March 31, 2017 10:11 AM

 

I received an email from the resin caster that is going to start producing 10” steel wheels. He has printed the casting master and will make a mold this weekend. He included a couple of photos of the master with a Mickey Thompson N50 tire on it. They look really good. He should have wheels available next week. Once I get the wheels & tires in my hands I’ll post again to let you know what the quality is like and also give his contact info.

Nope, afraid not, Nigel. These are 10" wide 15" steel wheels to mount a big old set of N50x15 Mickey Thompson tires on. I ran a set on my Barracuda and was really shocked to find out somebody was actually producing the MTs.

...I used to run M50 Mickey Thompsons with Cragar S/S wheels on a new 1973 Cuda...took 130 lbs of air in the Hi-Jackers to clear the rear fenders

I don't recall the exact pressure in my air shocks, but I lifted the car just enough to clear the tires when running over bumps in the road. I didn't want the back end way in the air. By the way, you mean N50, not M50. Right?

...pretty sure they were M50, but it was 45 years ago LOL....90-100 lbs would allow occasional rubbing, cold winter would cause deflation, so I ran 130 to be safe

UPDATE:

I just received an email from the caster that he had a few copies of the 10” steelies done. He is going to package them with 7” steelies for $5.00 per set of 4. I already have mine ordered, but he doesn’t have them up on the website yet. I’m sure he wants to get several in inventory before he puts them out there for sale. As soon as mine arrive I’ll let you now what I think of them. I ordered several other pieces from him along with the wheels. I added the M/T N50s, another set of tires for my '70 Plymouth HEMI® Cuda (made specifically for this kit), and a few different carburetors. Looking forward to getting everything. I now have every piece I need to build my Barracuda notchback tribute!
