I took my tires up to be balanced this week and think I found the source of my vibration both my rear wheels took ALOT of weight I was told and one was bent enough that it caused movement. Now these are not original 1956 wheels but exactly what year I do not know. So I am looking for guidance in shopping for replacements. 

 I am thinking  4 matching wheels and they are 15"X not sure if they are 5"or6" wide 5 lug on 5" pattern  with 3.75 " back set. 

 

 Anyone have an idea of what years,Model or Makes I need to shop for that would work for me???

 

 Thanks for any and all help.

Any reason to not look at new aftermarket wheels?

What look are you going for on the Safari? Stock? Classic elegance? Custom billet? That should determine the wheel you go after.

If the car is mostly stock or a light resto-mod, I personally like a Kelsey-Hayes wire wheel with some wide white walls for the old school look.

Going for a modern look, then obviously the sky and your wallet is limit.

2010 Camaro wheels will fit with the bolt pattern.

Leaning toward stock. I did consider Chrome with baby moons but not to sure . probably just steel wheels I can look for period correct full hubcaps

If you're sticking with stock steelies, spider hubcaps with chrome trim rings is a classic custom look.
