Put your geiser glasses back on Chuck.. they look almost the same, minus the center cap, and the previously rough-cast holes. If you remove the center cap, and smooth polished and chromed an old US Mag, I think you'd have a dead ringer.
If they looked exactly like the originals.... well, they wouldn't command much of a price!

P.S., I still wouldn't mind seeing a plus-size diameter version!

The perfect "Day Two" rim IMO. These are original ones on this Deuce but the look is the same.

Man, I would swap out my wheels in a second for a set of semi-polished 17" slot mags that looked right. All of the ones that I have seen don't have the right look once you get beyond 15". Can't see why someone doesn't man up and just make them. I mean, the TTII basically sustained ARE for the last decade.
