Vintage Wheels, Shelby 427 5-lug rim

Vintage Wheels is now offering a new Shelby 427 5-lug rim. Officially licensed by Carroll Shelby, the 407S series allows for either a high-offset or deep-dish, soft-look rims. The highoffset application is ideal for new-generation and retro muscle cars such as the Mustang, Camaro, Corvette, Challenger, while the lowoffset (deep dish) is better suited for vintage Sixties and Seventies muscle cars with that pro touring look. Plus it’s great for a Cobra too. It’s available in sizes from 17 to 20 inches, and widths up to 15 inches. The backspacing can be set in 1/8-inch increments for a tight fit. Build time is currently two weeks. While the wheel is supplied with spinners, as shown in photo, if you do not require them, a flat billet center cap is available. Center colors are Shelby Gray and satin black with highly polished outer rims. Only a five-lug rim is currently offered, but a pin-drive version is coming soon, with an adapter and spinner kit to suit most fivelug hubs for a direct fit, no machining required. Valve holes are drilled on the back of the wheel rim on these and all softlook rim builds for a cleanlooking outer lip. For those car builders who require valves to be on the front, that can be custom ordered. The standard bolt patterns are 5 on 4.5 and 5 on 4.75 , but other bolt patterns are available.
