I'm glad I am not the only one here who likes the old school rims.

Given that, it is hard to believe nobody is making anything retro in a modern size. I think turbines in a 17x9 would be a good seller...

Went and picked up my set of 4 today. Guy has had them since they were new!!! Like 20+ years. Scored these 4 for $125, they need some work but are easily saveable.

Can any of you guys direct me to where I can buy washers and lug nuts for these? Thanks!!!

WOW you lucky dog, you will probable have to go to a reputable tire&wheel place.
Cause you will need the long skinny collar shank to fit inside there and a pressure type washer?

I hear on these aluminium rims getting the lug nuts to stay tight it a constant battle, so FYI spent the $ and get a good quality set. Yea I know thats 32 lug nuts and some sort of constant friction washer x32.

When alum and steel are matted together its dissimilar metal so corrosion is common, put a little grease on the back side of the wheel hub area and anti siez on the threads.

Let us know what you get worked out ok? Thanks fellow fin rim owner....

I had to buy lug nuts for mine to. Because of the PO was missing some, I bought mine with washers from here.

I have a set of turbines and a set of slots here, I found the lugnuts for them at Amazon actually, had some on closeout and got most of them for under a buck apiece with washers so I'd check there for sure.. I'm not using these rims so if you find you need some I'd let them go reasonable.. I just don't know how to put pictures here..

My 73 f250's turbines I think used the 1/2"-20 thread pitch 1 1/4" long shanks. Just google it and there are a few places selling them.

Yes you will need pretty long lug bolts due to the thickness of the center of the rim, and like I said (in the other rim thread) make sure they stay torqued they can loosen up and ruin a rim pretty quick.

You will need the nuts with a .740" diameter shank. I think I used a 1 inch shank, I could measure them I guess but measure your rim thickness and go from there. Or I needed the ones with that size shank anyway, the smaller ones just would not fit tightly in the rim. I think its the same size as your average 9/16 stud lug nut McGaurds # is 62820.. spendy at Summit though

Not mine. Comes with lug nuts also. I know they are only 5 lug, but I'm sure 1/2 ton people are checking this thread out also.
