OLD SCHOOL WHEELS.. A-Team Van style

For those that are old enough to remember the show the A-Team, what kind of wheels are on that van? I need 1 wheel, I have 3 and need to find 1.. without a name, it's next to impossible to find one. thanks.

nope, I'm wrong...Thornbirds are the tires that you typically see on those wheels on jeeps.

Re: OLD SCHOOL WHEELS.. A-Team Van style

dude those wheels are called "hurricanes". but i don't know where to find them. try maybe ebay or an old school van shop. they might have an idea. but i'm pretty sure that's what they're called.

this ain't my first rodeo!

Re: OLD SCHOOL WHEELS.. A-Team Van style

Noone makes those wheels anymore. At one time practically every wheel manufacturer made their version of the whel. So it is going to be very difficult to find the exact same one unless you know what company made the ones that you have. Other than that comb the junk yards, cuz I always see those things layin around.
