WTB- Hands wheels for late model
Date: July 02, 2019 03:26PM

Hi group, looking for a full set of Hands wheels with spinners to fit my late model Sprint. I know these are hard to find, but hoping someone might have a set sitting in the back of the shop??
These wheels on my 64' are what I am looking for, just need them for a late model..

Thanks, Jeff

Yes, 4 3/4 is correct so either they won't fit or the ebay ad is wrong.

I had a set of 14” Hands at one time. They were 5x4-1/2. They fit a Mustang. So, the set listed could be 4-1/2’s.

Hands wheels were also made in many other bolt patterns.

The 5x4.5 is 1960's era Mustang along with others.

I doubt anyone is racing with 5-1/2" wheels.... have them cut for Unilug!

Is that the Pinin Farina Corvair coupe you're parked beside in that photo? What show was THAT?

If Hands wheels are a must have, buy the Evilbay wheels and machine them for Unilug as Matt suggested.

A few years ago, I bought a set of NOS 14x7 Minilite wheels that had the Ford 5 x 4 1/2" bolt pattern and had them redrilled to 5 x 4 3/4" and inserts installed to use regular accorn lug nuts.

Thanks for that info, I will keep that option in mind for when the wheels arrive..
