The look and value of your North American classic or muscle car can be ruined with a set of cheap aftermarket wheels, or scuffed-up originals. For more than 30 years Specialty Wheel has produced original-look wheels for older Fords, Chevys, Buicks, Cadillacs and various Dodge/Plymouth/Chrysler cars. And for that custom look, many of these recreations are available in sizes that are larger than original. Not only does the company make wheels, but it can also supply customers with the correct-looking center caps, trim rings and lug nuts, all of which are designed to be virtually indistinguishable from the originals. Prices vary according to size and complexity, but start in the $85 range for a basic early Chevrolet Rallye rim, up to more than $450 for a Cadillac wire wheel. For availability and ordering go to
