4 lug wheels !

Post #1 by BetsyBabe64 » Sat Apr 24, 2010 1:40 pm

Hey everyone ! It's been a long time.

I've been looking to replace a wheel on my car. In my 1964 Falcon I have all original 4 lug 13 inch wheels. So far I haven't been able to find a replacement. The reason I need a new one is because I have a wheel that isn't perfectly true, it's a little bent. When I go 50 MPH the car begins to vibrate really bad. If I go above 60 MPH the vibration decreases. It's not very pleasant.

I went to Les Scwab and they said it was my front bearing going out. I then went to another Les Scwab that was closer to where I lived and they assured me it was because my wheel on the right side isn't perfectly round.

The wheel use to be pretty bad, I took a hammer to it and busted out the dent as best as I could. It helped A LOT but the car still vibrates a lot when I hit 50 MPH.

Does anyone know where to get these wheels that fit the mini dish hub caps ? ebay doesn't have ANYTHING at all.

I know the 4-lug 14" fit the same caps as the 13" if you wanted to upgrade to factory 14" rims. If you want to stick with 13" get ahold of Tom @ http://www.joebfalcons.com he has a bunch of rims laying around.
