Looking for some erco style rear wheels for my current upgrade.
I will be running the current zero offset fronts with the wide 5 pattern all round.

Plan to run 26x8.5 slicks under stock rear guards, with tubs to suit the 3" FOLTS axles and the DLX trans raise I have just finished.... And non adjustable SAW springplates.

So the question is.... Who has a suitable ERCO style 7" wide rear wheel with a 3.25-3.5 backspace.... And before say call Eric.... Have tried... He's not making them anymore.

Also tried to get Moore Parts (CMS supplier) to quote me supply and shipping to Australia, but so far they have not replied to my emails.

Any other options?

Although I , Personally have had no dealings with Bogart wheels, I have heard absolutely nothing but good things about the company products, and outstanding personal service. Tom Simon who frequents this site, had a most interesting post here.. I have been told that if you contact Bogart.. they will talk to you.. not a machine, not a useless office worker and not a high pressure sales clown. They , being the owner(s) of the Bogart Company. They are setup to make any custom wheel your little heart desires... back spacing, width details etc... They have few outside the US sales outlets.. I suggest, you Contact them direct..Best of luck. The best is not cheap.

Call Walter at CMS -- he did the custom wheels on the Fiat -- he manufactured all of ERCO rims and I think Dean just ordered a set and he'll ship anywhere -- check all the new designs he can cut into the rim

new number is 562.696.3602

Is this the place you are talking about ? http://custommetalspinning.com/htm/wheels.htm Hey Humpty. Mike McCarthy
Hey Mike.... Good to see you here.... You know the fun I've been having with my car! ;)
Will see if I can get through to Walt the next few days... Looks like a 2am phone call is in order for me.
Thanks for the heads up guys.

Johnie walker(1960 ragtop) just bought a set of bogarts and said the price was slightly less than the star cut ercos he had also had quoted. Not enough $$ to really make a difference, he also preferred how they look.
I don't believe bogart has a zero offset option though.

Ditto. Walt Jenkins at CMS built me some 6" wheels with 3.5" backspace as per my specifications and shipped them to Canada. Very good person to deal with, great email communication and no need for long distance phone calls :happy:
