EM Aluminum Slotted Wheel Wanted

I've got a 64 coupe Rat Rod project in mind. I was thinking about using some aluminum slotted wheels I have with 205/60/R13 tires in a how low can you go fashion but discovered the 4 I have are not all the same.

Does anyone have one or two 5 1/2 or 6" wide; 4 x 4.5 aluminum slotted wheels around? I will not use Uni-lugs and prefer the type where the lug nut shoulder goes through the wheel rather than beveled that sits on top. We can talk about size and backspacing depending on if you have 1 or 2 wheels. I would measure backspacing by laying a straightedge across the wheel and measuring down to where it rests against the drum.

I'm not looking to spend much, I'm just trying to use stuff laying around. If you've only got 1 or 2 and you're not going to use them anyway...

If this doesn't pan out I'll probably use blue painted steel wheels to bring the interior color outside and small poverty wheel covers. I've got more 61 wheel covers than 61 wheels however.

If you can't find 1 or 2, I have a set of 4 slotted 13" aluminum mags, but they are 5 lug. The lug shoulder does goes all the way through and the lugs are all fairly new and nice looking.

I have a set of 13’s aluminum slotted wheels. They are white. Might be a bit to ship….. but there would like to find a good home.

PM received from someone with 2. Hope it works out
I'm not so keen on them that I want to buy a set of 4. Trying to use what I've got. White wouldn't be the thing for this go round.
I've got a set of 4 5 bolt aluminum slots if someone is interested. Michelin X tires even... They're probably 13 x 5.5.
