Default gasser era wheels

Trying to find a set of ansen torque thrust wheels Problem is I need a set of 15x15 for the rear I dont think they made em that wide. Anyone know of a custom wheel fabricator, maybe I could get a set widened? Even if the rims look similar,they dont have to be original torque thrust rims. Trying to keep the gasser project alittle period correct. Thanks

you might try CMS (Custom Metal Spinning) out of California, I had them make me some wheels for my old car a few years back.

I just sold some super tricks on ebay 15 x 14 ...I think they are early 70's style and still around...ugly too.

Ok looked em up on the net , always called them slot mags. never heard them called jelly bean mags, I have been under that rock too long! Yea those would work just fine if I can find some 15x14s easy to polish up also.
