Unless you're in a suburb or city in Iowa, you should have no problem getting your split rims serviced. Any farm place that does tires or big rig outfit should have the safety case required to service your wheels. For custom wheels, I've seen actual prices starting aorund $200 range. That is PER wheel. And most of them are a flat center disc. I like the big truck look. <g> IIRC, you wanted "attitude", right!?

Default '69 M715 parts in Massachusetts

Bluetorch fabworks made me centers for $60. cut the centers out of a wagon wheel with a plasma and welded the two together $147 total and you can have designs in them too. I made some directional holes kinda like a weld typhoon. pretty cool looking for the old work horse and they make the 44's look nice!!!

Oh yea I almost forgot. I'm not too sure why but when I did the spring over I did the shackle reversal and made some costom perches out of 2.5" square tube. with that combination up front and 4.5" blocks out back (shackle flip also). the front is only 1.5" lower than the back. I plan to remedy this by putting 3" blocks in the back to lower it a little cause I know the bumper will bring it down more. havent driven it yet but hope too soon.

Stockton Wheels in Stockton, California makes one piece wheels that will work. They will build them to your specs (Wheel Diameter, Wheel Width, and whatever offset you want). Around $200.00 per wheel. Their website is www.stocktonwheel.com
