They were listed as just regular old Chevy wheels but I cant find them anywhere. Anybody know what these came off of? They are listed as 15x8s.

From what I found I'd say they were an aftermarket wheel called a Jackman.

 

Look at post 26 and 27 on this Ford forum thread:

 

http://www.ford-truc...n-wheels-2.html

 

Then the result from image Googling Jackman wheels:

Borrowed from the 5th result from the above Google search:

Oh, and this from a VW forum:

Spoked wheels were very popular in the 1970's.  you can see some of mine in this picture.

The guy with these aren't responding, so the search continues I guess. Nice to see they are fairly attainable though. Would love to own a set.

Seems like every Chevy Luv I have seen had/has wheels that looked a lot like these. Not sure about bolt pattern though.
Blast, powder coat, install, smile.

I'm looking for a single 15X8"  6X5.5" lug pattern, vintage 8-spoke Jackman wheel (aluminum or steel) like the one pictured up above at the start of this thread.

If anybody knows where I can find one for sale, please let me know.  Thx.

Cheers.

:)

Jacman was the real brand name mfgr of this type of wheels, and they ultra popular as much as slotted mag wheels in the 70-80's. One reason wa because they were made from inexpensive steel and were far cheaper to buy than the all alum or alloy wheels.

In So Cal they were a big hit with the 4x4, sand buggy's and Baja bug crowds. There were enough makers of this style wheel that the guys in the new car prep departments or speed shops called them "can-opener" style wheels because they looked like the top of an old tin can that someone tried to open with a "church key"'type bottle opener by making numerous punctures around the top of the can.
