Which style mags best suit HKTG holdens?
(vote bottom RHS of page.)
This one is a tricky one for me. I reckon quite a few of the old school mag styles suit. I Have a set of deep dish 5 slotters I pulled of my kingswood 25 years ago and im going to start cleaning them up and polishing them over the next few weeks & months.
The standard rims and spats are coming off. I'm losing the sleeper look!

I’m a fan of those “tasma” mags,
I had them on my HR Ute. And Surfman had them on his HK wagon and they looked cool, he now running stranded rims ask him if there for sale, he’s got anew toy now a 50s chev lol
But in saying that they looked good, and the centrelines looked tuff

I should have added that. I guess the GTS sprint style is closest to that.Click on that one when you scroll to the bottom of the page DDD.

I got some HQ centres (could of used K-T-G if i wanted) and had them welded into stepped 15" rims, 7 and 8" , rears are reversed.
I thought long and hard when deciding on wheels.

Everyone seems to be going to the "original" look these days, which i really love but i just want to do something a bit different as you say. I love period style rims. New school mags on old school cars just don't look right to me.

No mention yet of Simmons B45 or gold mesh. They’re all old school now, where’d the time go? It seems like yesterday that they were the “must have”

Or Weld Wheels. But you have to change stud pattern to Chev/HQ.

Not centrelines, i think these are armorlites .
I do believe the secret to getting a K-t-G looking just right is to shorten the diff .. I put a UC torry diff in, no tub work required.

I had Cheviot Armalites on my HG, which were a local Centreline copy but with flat centres, not dished. I think the ones on Dusty's ute look like Globelines (made by Globe of course) which were dished in the centre. Armalites had black plastic pretend bolts around the circumference but I took them out and put pretend chrome rivets there instead.
