Has anybody mentioned these? http://www.bassettwheel.com/steel.html
Not kidney bean, but impressive runout specs. They use a 1"dia 45*taper lug nut. I've used these wheels (in an outer beadlock style) on a 3800lb rockcrawler application. Never bent the centers. IIRC, they are available in custom backspacing to fit any need.

I like those wheels!!! Much better than the "D" or circle styles!!!
These are mine I had made more than a year ago.  Still sitting in the boxes waiting on tires and a finished car to put them on  Sad

They were made for the stock 1/2" but I think they could put in whatever you wanted.

    The  stock car wheels I have have the 5/8 holes so they have to be centered on 1/2 studs  and use a 45 degree lug nut.

True stock car wheels are made from much softer steel. They don't like potholes.  I like that you're going a little different on the wheel choice.
I've decided to put my 17" Centerline billets back on the Superbird. Just looks so boring with the Rallyes. Aso thinking about putting Black Ice decals back on the quarter panels but in satin black instead of white like they were back in the day.

  Larry did some research and the enkei wheels that were on te car were enkei ek90. 15x8 rims.  have found some online.  some not as wide. but believe that some place lie scockton wheel could widen them..  I knew  youd be puttin te centerlines back on LOL. taks care.

Tom, I've only driven the bird a couple of times this year. No time and then too hot outside. We're heading to Branson with it next week. I'll post some new pics in a few days.

It started out as a rusty, green '69 R/T SE.

Now, it's well on it's way to being a Daytona.

A fake Daytona, that is.

They are 69 AMD fenders and since I could not find any decent 70's and I already had these I decided to modify them to 70's I have the filler panels for the sidemarkers and the 69 bumper recess made just need to get them welded in, The bottom of the front fenders are already modified and the valance panel bolts on perfect.
