Pinstriped wheels used to be the norm in the early twentieth century. I love seeing artillery style wheels from the 30s or the old wood T wheels with starburst style pinstripe details dressing them out. It seems the big hubcap that took over in the 40's-50's killed off the decorative pinstriped wheel. It just wasn't needed anymore. Now I've seen a lot pinstriped wheels, I see pinstriping everywhere I go, but over the years I've never seen a set done up like this. The closest set that I saw were set up at a GNRS in a wheel vender's booth, on a similar if not the same style wheel but it was still a bit different. This set now belong on an old ford pickup who's owner came to me while he'd been updating it. It had some older billet wheels that just didn't work with the truck. So he had sought out something cooler and with these Cragars in hand I was allowed to do what I thought would look good.....perfect situation! I just had to stick with pinstripe colors that already adorned the truck. Here's what I came up with. Some pictures of the wheels when I had them and a before and after shot of the truck sent to me by the client.
