I have a set of sanded 5.5" steel rims somewhere that I won't need, but I suspect you would need them in the USA which would be an expensive shipping...

I would need to get them to the US and I imagine shipping could be expensive but maybe not impossible. I just sent you a PM.

I have a set of 5 scruffy wheels from my 71 +2s BUT the dpo had drilled the hubs and wheels for 7/16 studs and nuts. The studs turned in the hub and the nuts had to be cut off to remove the wheels. Long story short I made oversize pins that pressed into the hubs and fit the wheels. Used them for years. Wheels free for shipping and I have rear hubs, left and right, with oversize pins, I thought I had a left front hub with pins but can't find it. I do have 5 pins for the other hub but I would make stepped pins and use your hubs. The pins in the hubs and wheels were concentric and ran true. PM sent. I am in El Paso Tx, Gary
