Hello Everyone,

I have a set of Hurst wheels on my 64 GTO. I am looking for the retention/ spring clips that hold the outer ring to the rim. Does anyone know who carries these clips? I've tried Ebay and Hurst--no luck there.

Thanks

I did a bunch of web searching myself for those clips. Found a couple articles that said they were made reproduction, but I'll be darned if I could find out who or if they were ever made.

My next suggestion might be IF you have a good one, I would bring it to a good metal fabrication shop and see if they could form a clip to match using spring wire. Other than that, it may be improvise time. I recall a Jay Leno story on his '66 Toronado and to get the original hub cap look on the front rims, he said they used velcro to fasten them. Sounds silly, but it may be something to consider.
