Got some new rims

The guy found them in his barn, never used, he forgot he bought them!



He can't remember what the company is but they are 15x8. Backspace looks to be 3.75". They were for a Jeep originally. They do rub on the calipers but nothing a little sanding won't fix. Dirty and have a bit of surface rust but that's no biggie, I'll be stripping the clearcoat on all of them, reclear the outer part, and paint the inside black, like these.



Or all black, not sure yet

Where do you think I could find center caps?

For centre caps, look at J.C. Whitney. They have AWC (Allied Wheel Co. / Cragar) chrome centre caps in various diameters. They're the kind that push through from the back, so the diameter will be the same size as the centre hole in your rim. They're just a few bucks each. Summit Racing also carries them, I think.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

Just an idea --
I can't tell from the photo, but I'd try hit the rims with a power washer first to see if the the clear coat is intact. That might just be a layer of barn crud on them. May save some unnecessary work?

Thanks for all the help guys. I bought some fine sandpaper just in case there is some crud left after washing them. Still unsure if I want them all black or like the pic posted....

Got them all cleaned up, will need to paint them all, it's going to make my life easier. The rims are actually Cragars, BUT, they're also 15x7... I emailed the guy to see if he would take them back or give me 80$ back
