My car has 2 15X7 OEM and 2 15X8 Wheel Vintiques repros on it. Spare is an OEM as well. I blasted and painted all 5 to match even though the repros were new. The repro wheels were powder coated silver which was fine but the darker paint on top for the center wasn't good quality or the right color.
The 2 on the left are the repros.

Thanks very much! If they werent side by side not sure I would know, two of my 14 in. oems are bent, driveable but takes a lot of weight to balance. Am not going to do concours and with very few choices on 14 in. tires just thinking about going with 15 in. repros, anyway appreciate reply and great pics, Mav

Be prepared to at least repaint the center color. You can sift through my build thread to see exactly I did all of the wheels. It was a bunch of work.

Here's how they look on the car:

255/60R-15 on 8" in the back and 235/60R-15 on the 7s in the front.

And I bought trim-rings from Coker Tire. 3" rings on the 8s and 2.5" on the 7s.

Looks great, I have black 69 judge 2h. I ran trim rings and redlines for about 20 yrs., then decided to go back more original so took off rings and turned the redlines in.
