    My dad's owned the wagon 2 years now in the wagon's past previous owner had painted the steelies yellow to match the car. Then they went with aftermarket American racing wheels my dad liked them but didn't love them like steelies. So after a few swap meets and searching we found some wider rims and a decent set of tires.

    I'm a huge fan of steel rims with poverty caps, on pretty much ANYTHING!! I have a set on my wagon, and ran a set on my 70 Sport Fury when I owned it, even have a set on my 84/93 Dodge W350 cummins conversion.

    That's an especially nice look with a light color (like yellow), I see you have the "faded vinyl dy-noc" problem, similar to what I have on my Diplomat wagon............ there was a thread about how someone used paint to "restore" the dy-noc's color, it looked a bit labor-intensive, but REALLY improved the look of the dy-noc without having to replace it....... great job on the wheels.

    I personally prefer black steelies and caps, but painted rims work for me as well. ;)

    Definitely on the list to do he want's to get a good tank for it hopefully that will be found soon. And the gas gauge after that but I'll look that up cause my 70 decal is fading also.

    I like black better myself like my 70. The 69 I guess were factory tow wheels painted white so those will stay if orginal. He received some 15x5.5 painted yellow when he bought the car but wanted wider rims painted yellow. He's so much happier now the 17s are off of it.
