I picked these wheels up cheap from a neighbor. They are 15" X 8.5". They have a 3.5" backspacing and a 4.25" center hole.
Inside they are marked K/M with a model (?) number of 58058.
Anyone know who made these or where I can find some center caps?

well I've seen them wheels a lot but I can't tell you who made them. Never cared much for directionals myself, but that sty;e does look nice with the black portion painted to match your vehicle. If you're rig is black already, then you're in luck there.

I imagine a tire shoip with a selection of center caps would be able to get ones that fit for you.

Speaking of center caps, I got some chrome ones with my American Racing steel wheels that are rusting pretty good already, not a big deal on this pickup but still annoying. At some point I think I'll leave them off and just paint the hubs black or scuff these caps good and paint them. Think it's Eagle that has some chromed plastic ones that look sharp new, but don't know how well they hold up over time.

Eagle alloys or Amercian Racing wheels, check there web sites.

Donk try alittle brillo on those caps you would be surprised at how the shine comes back when you get the rust off

Most likely they are American Racing, or KMC's. Sendel offered a version of that wheel but it was short lived. Progressive Wheel also offered one too. The number is just a production code. If it were and Eagle it would have their company name cast into the wheel itself along with its series number. If you go to any reputable tire shop and give them the bore measurement they can track down a cap for you.

I thought they were AR wheels too. The K/M threw me. Thanks for the link on the center caps. Now I just need to find a decent priced set of 275/60/15s

DO NOT use brillo or steel wool on those rims! They are polished aluminum, brillo and steel wool will ruin the finish, and allow the aluminum to oxidize very quickly, completely destroying the rims....they will never shine up again without major work.

All you need is Mothers or Maguires aluminum polish....rub it on wirth a clean rag, wipe it off. The shine will be restored. If they are bad enough that polish can't shine them up, they need resurfacing.

And I would agree, they look like American Racing or Progressive wheels. (They are a very close model to the rims on my truck in my sig pic, mine are Progressive.)

the brillo and/or steel wool part was refering to rusty chrome steel center caps, not the alum wheels themselves. But the advise was worth mentioning just in case though.

The wheels are clear coated. Brillo would only scratch it. I may have them stripped, polished and recoated.
