Thanks for the comment Ken!

The wheels are Team III out of San Leandro.

The rear are 15" x !0" and the fronts are 15" x 7".

12" wide MT tires on the rear.

I see you're just down the road from me. We're up 50 just around Placerville.

Have a good evening, Pat

They sure look a lot like the original Americans with the straight spokes, which I have been looking for in a new wheel. I'd never heard of Team III and turns out they are about a mile from my mom's house where I was today. Guess I'm going to have to check them out next time I'm down there.
Thanks

LOL! That's great!

Like you say, they look just like the Americans that I remember too.

The only thing I don't care for is the extra ridge on the outer part of the rim.

I was hoping for a large deep rim absent any of the ridge, but I guess that's just the way it goes.

Thanks for the comments.

Having a tough time color sanding as the frigging booth was too damn dirty!!

I may have to do the roof over again.

Just the cost of learning I guess!

Honestly, I didn't even think of going bigger than 10" wide.

Now I'll have to look at the 15" x 12"! LOL!

Not sure if they would fit though.

New wheels, without the ridge. Crazy, but the ridge just bothered me to the point that I had to replace them.

The new wheels are actual '66, '67 vintage.
