Looks great - nice find! Reminds me of the hurricane style wheel on the A-Team van. Love it.
They actually are of the same manufacturer, just the Chevy car "pattern," they're unilugs, so they'll fit 4.5 and 4.75 bolt patterns. Now I need to find a set of those wheels for my truck.

My dad has a set of 15x10s that he refuses to sell me... said I'll get them "eventually." But I would rather not think about it that way...

I love the design, it just feels beefy, and the center caps just polish it off perfectly. The spinners/knock-offs, however you want to call them, have always appealed to me for some reason.

We didn't make it to the grass area, my uncle was on a scooter and didn't think it would handle the off roading. We were there till about 6pm, some vendors were packing up by that time, not many though. I'm excited for the next one, they actually had a bit of G Body stuff this time around, an order of magnitude more than previous meets, which usually had next to nothing. The swap meet in Decatur tends to have a bit better G body selection, which is still abysmal at best, but I did get to see my first Aerocoupe and 2+2 in person at the Decatur meet a couple years ago.
Decatur, Tx or Illinois? haven't heard of that swap meet

Decatur, TX. First major meet of the year. Usually last week of February every year, Friday to Sunday. My dad and I always go to this one on Friday. After missing a rolling chassis 68 c10 short wide, for $1800, by a few hours... we get there early. They used to run one in fall, too, but I think they stopped due to the covid thing.

Oh man. I had stacks of those wheels back in the day. I love Pate. If you can't find it there, you aren't looking
