    Thanks for the compliment on the wheels. They are made by Ultra Wheel and the model # is 454. They were originally made for Edelbrock back when they sold wheels. When Edelbrock stopped, Ultra continued and they are still available from a number of vendors. The size is 17" x 8" with a 4.25" backspace which puts the wheels about 1/2" farther outside than is optimal as far as tire rubbing the fender is concerned. The target backspace for a 17" x 8" wheel is 4.75". I've rolled the fender lips and rubbing is minimal. For comparison purposes, Coy's makes a similar wheel under the C67 label. It has the correct backspace but is visually different in a couple of subtle ways. You can spot the differences when they are side by side but hard to tell otherwise. In any event, when I bought the Ultra's about 9 years ago, the Coy's had yet to make it to market and the other Halibrand style wheels available then were considerably more expensive than the Ultras.

    Regards, Jeff
