ALLOY / STEEL WHEEL #DU40-25 "Wiremag" Style
If you are desperately searching for a match to your wheels like this here's one...There were many types of these. This is one. It has damage to it's edge. Chrome has rust as is shown. Just an old wheel to restore. Typically these are all in fair to poor condition and would need work to be presentable/serviceable. Estimate packing and delivery to be $24-$30. These aren't wire or are they magnesium..."wiremag" was a name for a style I think originated by American Racing Wheels.This type has an alloy center and a steel outer rim. There is a nice bend to its edge. Lots of rust. See the closeup of the wheel. (Click to enlarge)

Does not include lug nuts or lug nut washers. It is a 14 x 5 inch wheel. Offset on ths wheel is about 3mm positive. Lug holes are about 11/16 in diameter.

The 65-67 cars originally came with a 5.60-14 tire on a 4 inch wide wheel. The 67.5-70 cars had a 4.5 inch wheel with a 5.60-14 tire (145-14) or in some cases a 6.45-14 tire (165-14).

Each brand and size of tire are typically designed to fit 3 rim widths; one optimum size and a size on each side that are "OK". Check with your tire supplier. You may find tire to car body contact problems when you mount custom wheels on a car. It will depend on the wheel, the tire, and how your car is sitting on its suspension.. Typically the more "dish" (negative offset) the wheel has when you look at it the worse the situation is. In some cases I've seen people add a bit of clearance by trimming the inside of the rear fender lip. The above wheels were on a stock roadster; HOWEVER IT IS YOUR COST AND RISK when going to a custom wheel that it will work to your satisfaction.

There is a tremendous variety of wheels that list they "fit" the roadster. Many don't; they just share the same bolt pattern. At least these were actually ON a roadster!
