-23-2019 Update! We are no longer carrying these as we are not happy with the amount of weight it takes to balance them and the color of the painted area is not quite correct. Unfortunately the founder of Specialty Wheels passed away several years ago and since then the company has changed hands a couple of times and the quality has suffered. No returns and no plans to reorder.
Reproduction 15x7" styled steel wheel with a chrome outer rim for your Mercury Cougar. No, Mercury never offered them this way... We now sell more of these custom made SS wheels than the original 14x6" version that uses a trim ring. Not only do they look better and allow you to run a wider tire, you no longer have to worry about scratching costly trim rings against a curb. This is a great improvement over the original as the chrome gives a great contrast with the charcoal colored center and the 15" wheel puts the sidewall bulge of an over-sized tire just over the upper ball joint whereas the 14" with an over-sized tire will rub slightly. These cost hundreds of dollars less than the latest "fad" wheel and help keep that original look for your classic as well as enhance the value. The five window trim parts per wheel come un-installed for those who prefer a mirror like finish and want to spend extra time polishing them. We sell these wheels with a 4 1/4" backspace unless you specify otherwise.
NOTE! These wheels are intended to be balanced with a lugcentric adapter. They will not balance with a traditional cone spacer on the tire spin balancer. Many tire shops do not deal with classics and do not have the right attachment. If you attempt to balance these wheels without the correct adapter they will resemble a bent wheel.
Caps and lug nuts sold separately.
