I had a set of true spoke wire wheels on my 74 Ford Torino Elite. The thing I liked about them was that altho they were spoke wheels, they were also tubeless. The spokes didn't protrude into the area of where the tire seated. That's not the case with the original style wires. They required liners over the spoke nipples and a tube. What is the width of your wheels ? Your tape measure seems to show 6 1/2".
Your wheels look pretty good for a driver car, but a little rough for a show car. If I had a little more disposable cash right now, I would like to take them. Just bad timing

I just found out the shipping quote I got is incorrect- so anyone interested needs to get a separate quote from me based on destination- sorry for the confusion.

Here's my take om your tape measure pic. The tape 1" mark is at the inside of the rim. The inside of the other side is at the 7 1/2" mark. Subtracting for the 1" starting point, I get a net width of 6 1/2 ". Doug Ward

I'll post a better pc later today. I believe the wheels measure 15 x 7.

As stated earlier- these are 15x7 rims- also they do NOT require a tube- (answering a question I received)- Phil

Don't know how and don't care to measure for backspacing- But here's a pic with wheels on my LM. Should prove that they work on a Corvair.
