Yup I had a set of chrome 14x6 bolt on wires on my `76 B years ago.
Supposedly they were originally on a 240Z. I bought them without centers but
luckily enough, the rostyle wheel centers snapped right in and looked
original. They worked well and looked great but with the wider rubber I was
able to fit I had a bit of a rubbing problem when fully loaded and cornering
hard.  Of course that could have been `cause the `76 body rolled like a
canoe. I still have them but sadly several of the spokes have lost their
chrome and they're covered in years of shop dust.

Anybody interested?
