Just a reminder and I"m sure all of you know this but 'most' Beck cars have long axles. The rear wheels were made specifically for that set up. Measure your back spacing by placing a straight edge across the rim as if you dividing it in half then measure to the lug bolt plate. If you buy the wrong wheel, it will hit the rear fenders. I'd suggest as did Danny, call Carey or Kevin Hines at Special Edition.

I just got a quote from them...$2800 for 15" and $3600 for 16".


So the price has come down some. That's good, but I'm still probably not buying them.

I agree with you D, you already have the one piece spun aluminum ones from Greg. If I had already bought the 15's I wouldn't have bought the 16's. But if you were buying now wouldn't you pay an extra 200.00 a wheel for the 16"? I know I paid a lot more but I bought mine at least 8 years ago.

FYI, the Vintage 190 wheels are cast, not spun aluminum.

If I was getting the Tiffany and Co. wheels I would have spent the extra for the 16s, yes.
