Greetings,
I thought I’d ask around here about vintage race wheels for my 1989 F150 I recently picked up.
What was used back in the day for class 8 trucks?
Thanks every one!

It looks like allot of trucks had a wheel that looks like a Centerline style. So who made the race wheels of the day? This truck was sponsored by Ultra Wheels, did they make the wheels on the 801 truck?

I have 2 different short box 4x4 F150 trucks I’m building. I have a 1989 and 1986. The 86 will be for vintage racing. So thanks in advance for info and ideas.

What type of suspension set up did a STK Full truck have? On a class 8 4x4 F series/Bronco did people use rancho kits or was a cut and turned beam a thing in the late 80s?

If anyone has an old Alcoa 5x5.5 15" wheel I'd like to buy it for a display. Also like to find an old knock off spindle/nut for same. Ok if threads buggered up since it's for display.
