  • original steel wheels

    a friend of mine is building a 78 cj 7 back to original . he's not exactly computer savvy , so i have been helping him locate certain parts on the internet . but the one thing ( or four ) i am finding hard to find is ,original stamped steel rims (the ones i have seen in magazines are always a tan color on original rides ) are they that hard to get ? (in nice, not bent shape). were they made only for amc ? are there other applications that use the exact same rim ? any ideas on what they would cost if i can find them ? and one more thing , what kind of tires came on a factory jeep in 77 or 78 .i have found a wheel here or there but they are always considered to be in "rough" shape . any input would help him out . added pics

    original steel wheels for cj's are easy to find. if rusty just sand blast and repaint. should be able to pickup for $25 or less per wheel
